U.S.S.R (former)

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

Our oxide products feature steel or iron enclosures that have been individually oxidised to create an interesting array of rich surface patinas. The enclosures are then sealed through a unique preservation technique to prevent further ageing.
