Our Autumn Collection is live


A cross section of historic retro medical lighting including converted heat lamps, medical inspection lamps and an optometrist’s light box form the basis of our Autumn 2011 collection:

Throughout history, medicine has used some of the most interesting and cutting edge technologies, this is certainly so with lighting.  A product that in the 1950’s may have looked fearsomely technical and almost alien, transposed into a modern domestic setting makes for a stunning, practical and adaptable lamp.

The collection consists entirely of one-off desk, floor and wall lamps,salvaged from hospitals, dentists and opticians across the UK.  These have then been sensitively restored keeping the character and narrative of that individual item whilst bringing them up to date with modern lighting and environmental standards.
