Radar Sconce, un aplique de lectura vintage

Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co. es una empresa estadounidense que fabrica y comercializa productos de decoración. Su catálogo es impresionante, tanto por su tamaño, como por el tipo de propuestas que agrupa.

La que hoy os enseño es este aplique de pared, con aire vintage, llamado Radar Sconce. Su diseño se gestó a partir de la idea que surgió al descubrir una pequeña lámpara que tenía incorporada una vieja lavadora  industrial de los años setenta.

“Our Radar Sconce was inspired by a light originally used on an industrial parts washer. Utilitarian simplicity; we loved it. When sourcing parts, we stumbled upon a 1970s stamped electrical box from one of our East Coast vendors that had the vintage tooling but hadn’t used in decades.”

“We crushed hard on all the stamped details, including a cross, risk-of-fire warning, and wattage rating on the canopy box face. Functional communication incorporated into the design is what makes many vintage designs so rad. The perforated guard matches the original industrial parts washer diffuser, but we developed a clever way to attach it using magnets so that the thumbscrews don’t scratch the paint. This fixture is practical, colorful and flexible—a beautiful and simple example of American industrial lighting. The Radar Sconce can be hardwired into a wall or ordered with a cord to hang anywhere you please.”
