History

Created in the 70’s/80’s by the Polish lighting manufacturer ‘Polam Wilkasy’. The smaller size of these pendants made them extremely popular in industrial installations which were subject to remodelling. Their solid cast aluminium construction and sealed structure provided a resilience that would guarantee a long service life in volatile environments. Their overengineered design firmly ranks them in the ‘explosion-proof’ category of industrial lighting of the cold war era.

About

Recovered from a decommissioned ceramics factory in Ostrava, Czech Republic; these pendants had remained in remarkably good condition. Through a process of vapour blasting, the aluminium castings have been carefully preserved so, crucially, they still retain their priceless evidence of age.

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.
