A Vintage Limited Edition

Often the best way to make something new is to rediscover something old. The designers at Studio PS in collaboration with Spoor38 did just this in finding inspiration in previously abandoned factory lights. While traveling France in search of exceptional vintage relics, a small quantity of lamps was found and immediately caught their eye. They were unusually small as their previous occupation had been to hang over workbenches in a glass factory, but the designers saw potential in giving them new life, and procured all 50 pieces. Working by first disassembling the lamps to understand their design, they next decided to accent the products with a fresh material choice. After some experimentation, a concrete part was incorporated into the lamps, adding a new curve to its silhouette. Then, through the addition of some tactful color choices, the lamps were able to shed all the dead weight of their past and venture into the rose-colored land of vintage design. The limit of the find makes each lamp a treasure, with a unique number to signify its production order as in an edition of prints. The design evokes the industrial aesthetic of the past with a fresh wind of the present, and would be a centerpiece in any owner’s home.
