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.

Restoration

Oxide is a range of lights featuring specially treated steel or iron enclosures, that have been purposely and individually oxidised in our workshops to create an interesting array of rich surface patinas. The enclosures are then sealed through a unique preservation technique to prevent further ageing.

Manufacturer: REVO

REVO was founded in the early 20th century and became a household name in the 1930s, when electric street lighting was widely introduced throughout the UK. Based in Tipton, Staffordshire, REVO engineers were famed for their creativity, often developing styles of lighting individual to the towns for which they were designed. This means that whilst there are a wealth of classic REVO styles, from prismatics and enamels to machinist lights and bulkheads, there are also some incredible individual rarities to be found.

A quick word from our customers

1940s industrial lights

The quality of what I bought (being around a third of the cost of their top end items) is exceptional. Recommended.

- Steve | London | UK

Wonderfully restored

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.

- Matthew | London | UK

Impeccable service & a fabulous range of industrial lights

Your service was impeccable & your beautiful quirky stock of the highest quality. I was lucky enough to visit your HQ in Cornwall whilst on holiday near there. What a wonderful creative sustainable environment you work in. Such a fabulous range of interesting industrial lights. I am delighted with my runway light & will tell everyone where it’s from!
