History
Produced in the 1980’s by ‘Polam Wilkasy’, the Eastern Bloc’s powerhouse of lighting manufacture.
Following the gearing-up of Polish-based manufacture during the preceding cold war years, the need for extremely durable equipment was a must. Polam Wilkasy were contracted to produce sealed fittings which could function safely within volatile environments rich in gas, chemicals, water and heat.
About
Overengineered to perform in these hazardous environments, the brutalist mantra of ‘form follows function’ is immediately obvious within this fitting. Once recovered and cleaned it became apparent that the original finish was mostly intact, for this reason the decision was made to clean and wax the cast aluminium casings to preserve her beautiful surface patina.
Further information
This fitting arrives complete with its original restored 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.
