Utilitarian Light Fixtures

Originally inspired by a light used on an industrial parts washer, this Radar Sconce light fixture is the perfect accessory for your utilitarian-style home. Portland-based SCHOOLHOUSE Electric Supply & Co collaborated with ACE Hotel to create this 70s inspired Radar Sconce in 6 different color variations.

" When sourcing parts, we stumbled upon a 1970s stamped electrical box from one of our East Coast vendors that had the vintage tooling but hadn’t used in decades. We crushed hard on all the stamped details, including a cross, risk-of-fire warning, and wattage rating on the canopy box face. Functional communication incorporated into the design is what makes many vintage designs so rad. The perforated guard matches the original industrial parts washer diffuser, but we developed a clever way to attach it using magnets so that the thumbscrews don’t scratch the paint. This fixture is practical, colorful and flexible—a beautiful and simple example of American industrial lighting." - SCHOOLHOUSE Electric Supply & Co.
