History
The Baltic city of Gdansk was subject to extensive regeneration following the onslaught of the Luftwaffe during the Second World War; a key company that sprung up during the resultant economic boom was the lighting manufacturer ‘Polam Wilkasy’. With experience in the lighting industry dating back to 1955, they had many years to perfect their industrial lighting designs and as such, by the 1980’s when this pendant was crafted, their expertise in the production of lights for highly industrialised environments had reached a pinnacle.
About
The rugged sealed enclosure, glass dome and protective cage resulted in a seriously robust fitting which gained the accolade ‘Explosion-Proof’. Salvaged from a decommissioned factory in the Czech Republic, this pendant was one of many stretched along the entire length of a subterranean workers passageway.
In the 80’s, casting moulds were delicate so small imperfections generated through manual cleaning were forever embedded in the surface of the next moulding. During its restoration, the cast aluminium enclosure underwent a sympathetic vapour blasting process which revealed some beautiful surface textures.
Further information

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.
