Dunlop Aerospace Green Enamel Shade

Dunlop Grey Enamel Factory shade by Benjain

The Dunlop Aerospace Collection:

From its Holbrook Lane site in Coventry, in the industrial heartland of England, Dunlop Aerospace Braking Systems designed, developed and manufactured cutting edge carbon composite braking systems and lightweight alloy wheels for the aerospace industry from the 1920’s onwards.

It was this hive of British industry that our latest collection of lights illuminated. The lights, including classic enamel shades by Benjamin and Thorlux, hung in the workshops and the factory floor and would have seen many exciting developments in aircraft technology throughout the war years and beyond.
