Vintage steel plate pendant light for three tubes, repainted


This lamp type from the legendary East German manufacturer EOW was used as lighting in potentially explosive areas, in mining, the military or also in depots of the Deutsche Reichsbahn and is correspondingly extremely robustly constructed. The discrete charm of heavy industry is not only evident in the large form but also in every detail. The lamp can be used in many ways, e.g. in clubs or restaurants, in function rooms, workshops, loft etc..

Made of heavy steel sheet with safety glass, the lamp is almost indestructible. Even after decades, the materials used show only minor defects at most. Equipped with three tubes (LED tubes on request), the luminaire provides bright, even lighting. On the top of the body there are two eyelets for hanging, the cable glands are also located on the top.

For restoration, each light is disassembled into its individual parts. These are inspected, thoroughly cleaned and refurbished. Damaged parts are primarily replaced with original parts from luminaires of the same type. Sheet steel body and the frame for the glass pane are professionally repainted in cooperating workshops.
