Made in 80’s by the Gdansk-based lighting manufacturer ‘Polam Wilkasy’. They became known for their robust fittings which became a prominent fixture within industrial Soviet Union settings. Created towards the end of the cold war, Polam overengineered these pendants to expand their reach to the myriad of factories that established themselves during the wave of communism that swept the region. The entire fitting was sealed so could function effectively in the presence of chemicals, water and gas.
Salvaged from a refinery on the Baltic coast, it quickly became apparent these units would be best presented in their original ‘raw’ form. After undergoing a rigorous cleaning process, the wonderfully stippled satin surfaces emerged and brought to being a soft contrast with their striking structural lines.

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.
