Origin: Sweden

Although the majority of Swedish export is based on the production of machinery and vehicles, the country has a long tradition of well designed interior products. This is just as true for their lighting industry where the landscape is dominated by established architectural lighting companies, such as Fagerhult. It’s rare for us to salvage lighting from this region but those we do find are notable for their clean-lined, industrial aesthetic.

Restoration

The lamp is an aluminium and steel construction, with an interesting surface patina from the original worn paint finish which really emphasises the age of the lights. They can be fully rotated at the base with additional lockable articulation at the arm juncture and shade. Mounted to table with integral table attachment (55mm max clamping depth).

A quick word from our customers

1940s Industrial lights

Couldn't justify spending at the higher end of Skinflint's product range as out of my budget but the quality of what I bought being around a third of the cost of their top end items is exceptional. Recommended

I Love the light and Cara was fantastic with bulb advice and sending me a copy of the picture of the Engine it came from, great service thanks

Versatile light

Great light. It looks very smart. I was initially worried that it might be slightly big for the room (we don't have high ceilings) but it looks really good and I am really pleased with it.
