Summary

Bottles are great when they are full, but the're even better when they are empty with the Splash LIGHT.
Display that expensive bottle of wine you never wanted to drink or a memorable night on the tequila (we've all had one of them).
Compatible with most size bottles and interchangeable if you feel like creating a different lighting mood. Every bottle will change the ambiance according to that particular bottle style. Experiment with your favorite bottles or explore new ones, the variations are endless.
For the light, we found an old halogen desk lamp, dismantled it and retrofitted it to the SplashLIGHT - be careful because these emit a lot of heat. We left the socket free inside the splash fountain so it could be moved up and down inside the bottle to the position we wanted.

Alternatively, use it as a bottle holder without the light feature.
It's up to you. SplashLIGHT it your way!

Please don't do any wiring if you are not comfortable with it.

That can't possibly carry up the weight of a bottle without flipping ?

Hi Anderse,

Although it appears impossible, i assure you it supports the weight of most bottles that are available. We have made various versions to make sure that there is enough stability provided from the base as well as still keeping the visual effect.

I love the design, will try and print one (or several) for myself and my friends.
What material did you use when printing? With support?

Hi Wtone,

The best material we have found to print with is the clear abs materials, especially if you plan on using this with the light.

We printed using 10 degree support only and this seems to work fine in holding up the small droplets.

Cheers,

Matthew

Hi Kamalnv, it's quite a detailed model - we didn't want to sacrifice any quality with this one. Is it the download that is taking time or loading within your printer software?

Great Design and concept.. as it's a 3MB file it's taking time to load !!!
