History
Manufactured in the 80’s by the renowned Polish lighting manufacturer ‘Polam Wilkasy’. Produced in the brutalist style of the period where form followed function, every aspect of this fitting served a purpose. The sealed unit allowed operation within environments rich in volatile gases and the interesting, finned structure enabled the use of powerful sodium discharge bulbs without the risk of the assembly overheating.
About
Traditionally found within bunkers, this fitting was in fact recovered from a decommissioned mining facility within Ostrava – the industrial powerhouse of the Czech Republic. This pendant was used to illuminate the external passageways surrounding one of the main blast furnaces. The decision was made to restore this pendant to its factory specifications using a tough stove-enamelled finish.
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.
