Equire about this product

Origin: U.S.A

Unlike the communist Eastern Bloc countries, lighting design in mid-century U.S.A. 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. Due to the location we rarely have the opportunity to reclaim and restore light fixtures from the U.S.A., but some of our perennial favourites are the old signal lights that adorned the highways of the midwest. We reconfigure and restore these timeless classics into functional pendant lights, for both residential and commercial use.

Restoration

A two part enclosure which has been refurbished and reassembled by hand, preserving the original painted finish which adds an interesting surface colour and patina to the lights. The enclosure also features the cast makers mark, the original internal reflector and a new etched diffusion glass. The lights are suspended through a minimal stainless steel suspension system with ceiling mounting permitting millimetric adjustment.

Product details

Each light is supplied with a new bayonet (B22) lamp holder, 2metres of elephant grey braided power cable, and a ceiling mounting system. (As with all our products, should you require a different colour cable just let us know).

Love the lights, love your ethos. Absolutely what more companies need to be doing. I have my Retro Czech Ceiling Lights (V2) in my dining room and the spray of light they give off is gorgeous and unusual.
