History
Manufactured in the 80’s by the renowned Polish lighting manufacturer ‘Polam Wilkasy’.
A product of brutalist construction, every detail of this pendant serves a function. The sealed unit allowed operation within volatile environments and the highly unique finned structure was crucial for heat dissipation. The resulting fitting is true to the oppressed soviet design of the period and has left behind an object with an abundance of intrigue.
About

Although predominantly found within bunkers, this fitting was recovered from a decommissioned mining facility within Ostrava – the industrial powerhouse of Czechoslovakia. This pendant was used to illuminate the passageways surrounding one of the main blast furnaces; it had been in place for nearly forty years. The aluminium casing remained in remarkable condition so we made the decision to exhibit this pendant in its bare-metal form. Following a gentle vapour blasting process, all contaminants were removed from the mouldings, exposing the beautiful surface textures left behind when it was originally casted.

Further information
This fitting arrives complete with a new ceramic E27 lamp holder, two metres of black cable, two metres of steel chain and a ceiling mounting plate. Complete and ready to hang.

I was searching for something different, with a unique story and a history – and I found it. The quality is second-to-none, and the overall service was exceptional. I’ll be ordering another set as soon as the renovations are completed.

I am totally in love with my new light that has given the hallway some new life! The quality and attention to detail is exceptional. I can’t recommend Joseph Clark enough, from start to finish they have been great with answering my questions and making sure the light was exactly what I was after and delivered on time. I now want a light for every room!

I ordered two of the larger lights from Joseph Clark. After having them fitted in my loft they have created an industrial atmosphere which has surpassed my expectations. These lights came extremely well packaged so arrived in great original condition - I would definitely use them again.
