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.

Heyes

Manufacturer: Heyes

We can't be certain of the exact origins of Heyes and Co. of Water Heyes Electrical Works, Wigan, but we think the company was established in the early part of the 20th century with the first records we’ve uncovered being dated 1922. For over 50 years Heyes specialised in the design and manufacture of industrial and explosion proof lighting intended for use in extreme locations such as oil refineries and the mining industry. Then, in 1986 the company was acquired by Petrel Ltd and the Heyes name disappeared.

A piece of history

We found exactly what we wanted at skinflint: large industrial pendant lights from an old Dunlop Aerospace factory. They fill the space beautifully and we often get asked where they were sourced. With such heritage attached to them, they are like a piece of history that adds to the modern vintage feel we wanted to create.
