Origin: UK

Lighting design in the UK benefitted from a free market. Different companies were working at the same time, designing and producing similar products for the same market. Often with only slight differences in their style, they constantly upgraded and improved their original designs. The products we salvage come from the old industrial heartland of England. This area of the UK was once the boiler room of the British economy - from the potteries of Stoke, through the engineering works of Birmingham, to the wool, textile and cotton mills of Oldham and Manchester.

Restoration

Oxide is a range of lights featuring specially treated steel or iron enclosures, that have been purposely and individually oxidised in our workshops to create an interesting array of rich surface patinas. The enclosures are then sealed through a unique preservation technique to prevent further ageing.

Maxlume

Manufacturer: Maxlume

Maxlume were established during the early 1920s in Birmingham and manufactured a substantial range of fixtures of both an industrial and decorative style. The earliest catalogue we hold within our own internal manufacturer's archive is the 11th edition which is dated 1929 - during that year the company had actually doubled its manufacturing space and storage accommodation to cope with an ever increasing demand for its products. By the mid 1950s the company had been taken over by Verity’s, although the lights were still manufactured under the registered Maxlume mark.
