Salvaged Polish machinists lights

Era: 1960s Origin: Poland

Sensational run of oversized machinists work lights salvaged from a factory in Poland. These make stunning centre pieces when utilised over merchandise islands within retail spaces or as feature table lights in a residential environment.

Poland

Origin: Poland

Many of the products we salvage and restore from the former Eastern Bloc were produced in Poland. As with the majority of lights designed and manufactured under Communist rule - during the period from the end of the Second World War to the fall of the Berlin wall - they are defined by a clean industrial aesthetic, with the same design often manufactured in three scaled versions to cater for varying bulb wattage.

Their product is invariably beautiful and wonderfully restored. To have lights that have seen so much and then get a second life is inspiring in many ways.
