California Made: Affordable Pendant Lights from LA

Rule of thumb at Remodelista: when you come across really good lighting that is both affordable and made in the US, post about it immediately. These pendant lamps from Los Angeles company Wrk-Shp are too good to keep to ourselves.

Founded by an architect (Ryan Upton) and an architect-turned-fashion designer (Airi Isoda), Wrk-Shp defines themselves as a multi-disciplinary studio that is one part women’s clothing, one part product design. Their product design extends beyond accessories to lighting and furniture, but all their pieces have a subtle industrial quality to them. Here is a look at the duo’s concrete pendant lamps (plus their wall cleat, the best one we’ve seen yet).

Above: The Concrete Pendant Light in Red is a hanging fixture intended for indoor use only; shown here with a T-10 light bulb; $115. 

Above: Wall Cleats never looked so good. This one is made from a maple wood dowel and brass screws; $20 each.

Above: The Concrete Pendant Light in black is also $115.

Above: Details of the concrete socket with subtle branding plus a twisted cloth covered cord, available in black or red.
