The use of a plastic bag filled with water hanging from the ceiling is a traditional way of scaring away flies in many Mexican food markets. Water refraction amplifies colors and movement for a fly's sensitive eyes when reflected in this sphere, scaring it away and thus turning it into a natural, harmless pesticide.
Its drop-like shape generates a beautiful refraction effect that enhances the environment where this piece is installed.
With a frosted finish, this version of the Antifly Sphere was designed in 2012 by Mexican Designer José de la O and has been a best seller ever since. This product is made by hand at a family-owned glass workshop in Mexico City.
