Origin: Italy

The majority of Italian production is based in the industrialised north. Italy has a long tradition of well designed products which is just as true for the lighting industry - where the landscape is dominated by long established companies such as Artemide, Flos and iGuzzini. We often salvage and restore retro 1970s lights from this region, distinctively playful in their primary colours and simple forms that defined the era.

Restoration

Once we’ve salvaged a collection of lights, we bring them home to our studio and begin the slow process of restoration. Each light is disassembled and we examine every component for damage and flaws, so we know which can be kept, and which need to be replaced. We then hand over to our experts – in-house and locally – to carefully restore each component by hand. That often begins with soda-blasting (an environmentally friendly way to remove old paint), before hand-polishing, lacquering and rewiring.

Bibliotheque Lights

Beautiful lights, very pleased with the quality. Excellent service overall from skinflint.

1940s Industrial lights

Couldn't justify spending at the higher end of skinflint's product range as out of my budget but the quality of what I bought being around a third of the cost of their top end items is exceptional. Recommended

I love the light and Cara was fantastic with bulb advice and sending me a copy of the picture of the engine it came from. Great service thanks.
