Now, for almost a decade we’ve been making modern fixtures. In 2009 we saw an opportunity. Lighting design and energy efficiency had been limited by 100 years of the traditional incandescent bulb. Fixtures designed in America but manufactured overseas often had frustrating quality flaws and were limited by the inherent disconnect in their design-prototyping-manufacturing process. The innovations in incandescent and LED lighting, new technologies started bringing potential for efficiency, quality and beauty that had yet to be thoroughly explored or developed. So we set out to design and build original fixtures right here in California.
