Origin: U.S.A

Lighting design in the U.S.A. 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. Due to the location we rarely have the opportunity to reclaim and restore light fixtures from the U.S.A., but some of our perennial favourites are the old signal lights that adorned the highways of the midwest. We reconfigure and restore these timeless classics into functional pendant lights, for both residential and commercial use.

LFE

Manufacturer: LFE

Laboratory for Electronics (LFE) was founded in 1928 by Charles Adler Jr. and responsible for producing the first practical traffic light in the USA. By the 1950s LFE had become one of the most prolific manufacturers of traffic lights in the country, competing with other leading brands such as Eagle and Crouse Hinds. In the 1980s Mark IV Industries purchased LFE, who in turn sold the whole company to Siemens in 1997.
