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.

Restoration

The light and sculptors stand have been disassembled and every component examined, carefully restored and re-assembled by hand. The aluminium has been soda-blasted before being polished by hand. All the original features have been retained including the convex glass embossed with the makers mark and the mechanical aiming lock, which allows the fitting to be angled laterally. The collapsible tripod stand has a cast top plate with lovely detailing and the revolving top allows the light to be rotated 360 degrees, while the adjustable support allows the light to be raised and lowered.
