Italian opaline ceiling lightEra: 1950s Origin: Italy
An unusual decorative Italian ceiling light. White opaline glass with a hollowed center and a hidden aluminium mounting bracket.
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.View all lights from Italy
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.
Supplied with one new screw E27 (External) and three new small screw E14 lamp holders (Internal).
IP20 for internal use only. All dimensions and weights are approximate.
