Salvaged Eastern Bloc lightingEra: 1950s Origin: Germany
A run of mottled conical Eastern Bloc lights constructed from an industrial derivative of Bakelite. These unusual pendants make great feature lights above kitchen counters.
German designs are famed for their clean lined and well engineered approach. The Bauhaus School played a major role in combining design with engineering during the late 1920s and early 1930s. A number of lights we salvage were influenced by Bauhaus School design. From the mid to late 20th century, Communist East Germany produced a wide variety of lights for both industrial, commercial and residential applications, often manufactured in three scaled versions to cater for varying bulb wattage.View all lights from Germany
Every one of our lights goes through a variety of processes to bring it from the worn and often dilapidated state it arrives in, to a stage where it is ready for your project. The first and most important stage is fully dismantling each and every light - we do this even if we have hundreds of identical lights. We then undertake an in-depth review of its construction and following that, map its journey through restoration.

Fantastic light and flex. The chain will be replaced so that it does justice to the light. We will be back for more! Service was unimprovable.
