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.

Strand Electric

Manufacturer: Strand Electric

Strand Electric was founded in 1914 by theatre electricians Arthur Earnshaw and Phillip Sheridan at 19-24 Floral Street, London. Over the next 50 years Strand became the UK and Europe's principal manufacturers of stage lighting and theatre equipment. In 1968, Strand was purchased by the famous Rank Film Corporation and became Rank Strand. Strand was eventually bought from Rank by a venture capitalist group in the late 1990s. Today, Strand Lighting is still run as a separate, independent company within Royal Philips Lighting, and continues as a leading name in stage, television and motion picture lighting.
