Factory Working

Posted on Jun 19, 2014 by

Auxilium have made it their mission to minimise waste by giving salvaged items a new lease of life. And they made waves at this year’s Clerkenwell Design Week with their first range, Candy Collection, a range of charming colourful industrial lighting.

Functional factory lighting, these aluminium light shades hung for decades in a cable manufacturing plant in Cologne. When they unfortunately became unfit for purpose, the lights were due to be disposed of. But it was Auxilium to the rescue! After a journey of over 400 miles, the pendants have been housed in Auxilium’s London workshop whilst they have undergone a complete transformation.

Auxilium placed great importance on repairing the lamps in a way that would enhance their original qualities while giving them a new contemporary edge

Auxilium carefully selected a palette of 13 colours which are bright and modern but which also reflect 1950s design, the period when the lamps were originally manufactured

The Candy Collection lamps are available in 13 sugar sweet and bright buzzy colours, but there is also the option to colour match to your interior scheme too. And they’re available in matt, gloss and aluminium finishes. As these are salvaged items, some of the shades are slightly misshapen and Auxilium have deliberately not beaten out some of the original dents. These physical reminders of the shades’ history really add to their character.

Each shade is individually hand sprayed with a contrasting interior, providing a surprising pop of colour

The quirky characterful Candy Collection is a hit with us. But which colour and finish will you choose?
