History
Although known for their production of armaments, the Polish manufacturer ‘Zaklady Metalowe MESKO’ became a specialist in the home appliance and lighting sectors. By 1960, their lighting ranges were so popular they were successfully awarded government contracts for the illumination of newly regenerated infrastructure. Unlike modern street lighting, this light was not only functional but was designed to complement the Art Deco style of the era. As a result, this light offered a decorative value to the streets which really lifted the mood at the time.

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.
