El Ultimo Grito’s creation for Mathmos is available to buy from this week. Once part of the Mathmos Spin City project, which saw nine London-based product designers commissioned to come up with novel ideas, it features a simple aluminium shade that slides over an existing light fitting and bulb. El Ultimo Grito, named after the group, was inspired by the metal spinning process integral to the original lava lamps. It retails at £55.
