History
During the latter part of the Cold War, the Eastern Bloc became known as Europe’s industrial powerhouse. The Polish metalwork enterprise ‘Zaklady Metalowe MESKO’ was an important contributor to the regions industrial output; the experience of their designers led to the conception of this interesting factory luminaire. Designed to be suspended at height where her oval enclosure would guarantee the illumination of expansive areas.
The softly contoured steel enclosure combined with her sharp lines and vented junction box creates a focal point as eye catching today as it was fifty years ago. The producers of the 2015 James Bond film ‘Spectre’ certainly thought so and as a result, featured this model in their secretive scenes and promotional material.
About
It is extremely rare to find a light of this type in such fine original condition; during its previous life set within a polish hangar, the paintwork has developed a gently faded, yet beautiful surface patina which we just had to protect. As a result, we embarked on carefully cleaning the painted surfaces prior to applying Renaissance Wax; the result is a remarkable statement piece, frozen in time.
Further information
This light arrives complete with its original restored lamp holder with E27 socket, 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.
