Reviving The Nostalgia Of Vintage Industrial Work Lighting

The lighting in factories and manufacturing facilities of the early 1900’s was simplistic and functional, based primarily on low hanging trouble lights with protective wire guards that encased the bulb. This raw, simplistic design enabled a large amount of atmospheric lighting to spill out over workbenches and assembly lines in these industrial settings. With the development of traditional warehouse RLM lighting in the 1930’s, these typical lights were ultimately phased out in many facilities for reflective warehouse shades. In a sweeping attempt to recapture the simplistic nature of the Second Industrial Revolution, many homeowners and designers are turning to the minimalistic lights of the past to bring a unique retro personality to their projects. Reflecting this simplified mantra, the latest line of Vintage Industrial Ceiling Lighting captures the stripped down appearance of factory lighting that predates the great depression. Outfitted with a stem or twisted cotton cord, the lights in this section provide a rustic alternative to many of the mass-produced contemporary lights on the market. Used to highlight displays or supply ornamental decoration, the utility of these lights often leads to creative placement and uses. Whether outfitted with a wire cage or bare socket these vintage reproductions capture the spirit of the Industrial Era, delivering a touch of nostalgia with unique simple styling.
