Industrial Soviet pendant lighting

Era: 1950s Origin: U.S.S.R (former)

Vintage Soviet era industrial pendants salvaged from factories in the former CCCP. A two-part steel enclosure retaining the original manufacturers raw paint finish. The surface patina adds a lot of character and emphasises the age of these products.

Origin: U.S.S.R (former)

Many of the products we salvage and restore from the former Eastern Bloc were produced in the former U.S.S.R. and are defined by a clean industrial aesthetic. As with other Communist countries, the same design was often manufactured in three scaled versions to cater for varying bulb wattage. Lights from this region are often defined by their distinctive light green, two-tone colourways.

Restoration

This light has been assembled complete with the original prismatic glass well, lacquered steel cage and manufacturers branding. Restoring a light doesn’t necessarily mean making it ‘like new’. We often preserve the visible signs of age, such as spots of wear and patina, to give a hint about the light’s first story. Or we might reveal the bare metal, accentuating its build and design.
