Imagine our delight when, upon opening the doors to what will soon be our new warehouse and showroom space in Toronto, we were greeted with over 20,000 sq. ft. of lighting fixtures left over from the heydays of Canadian manufacturer Engelite Lighting.
It goes without saying that these fixtures represent an aesthetic slightly different from our own, yet, we couldn’t help but feel some sympathy for these abandoned tokens of a bygone era of Canadian lighting (design). Doesn’t every light, regardless of shape and size, deserve to be admired and appreciated for at least a little while?
And so, this is our small tribute to the luminaires left in this dusty old warehouse; luminaires which never quite had the opportunity to lovingly provide someone with light, but that nonetheless shine with potential, even now.
Engelite Luminaires, this is your time in the spotlight.
