Outdoor wall lamp cast iron and steel rectangular
All weathers: cast metal from the Black Country and glass domes from Worcestershire
This outdoor wall lamp with right-angled bent cable-carrying tube combines in itself a functional design with robust materials and craftsmanship. Thanks to its weather resistance, it is just overqualified for private domestic use. The castings come from a small foundry in the Black Country, the ore and coal region of the West Midlands. They are made of galvanized cast iron and are created using the sand casting process, or lost mold. The neatly fitted glass domes come from a glassblowing workshop in Worcestershire, where traditional glassmaking continues, preserving the once-famous English glass tradition.
Davey Lighting. Luminaires made in England
The roots of Davey Lighting go back to London's West Indies ports, where the hardware and ship lighting company (then called Davey & Co) began operations in 1885. Soon its functional lights were in use on many ships. As the glory days of British seafaring faded in the 20th century, Davey used the skills he had acquired over decades to produce what were originally maritime lights for use on land - initially in industrial and commercial settings.
However, the range was soon taken up by architects and designers, which is hardly surprising, since Davey's luminaires are still distinguished today by what characterized them even in their founding days: a clear design language oriented to purpose, a robustness conveyed through the choice of materials, and a workmanship with attention to every detail that was indispensable for the original use in maritime or industrial environments. From the cast iron, to the turned or pressed metal parts, to the hand-blown glass domes, all components are made by specialized craftsmen in England. Even the textile-covered cables that equip some of the lights are made near Davey's current headquarters in the Cotswolds.
