Raw 13 Pair of Industrial Vibe Table Lamps from Vintage Kirby Aluminium Casings
Two identical vintage Kirby parts featuring the company logo have been transformed by Utopia into a pair of unique table lamps with an industrial vibe. The cast aluminium casings would have originally formed part of the iconic vacuum cleaners Kirby has manufactured since early 1900s . The casings have glass backs so that light shines from both the front and the reverse, whilst the openwork front forms a hinged door with a toggle clamp at the top - useful access for changing the bulb.
Founded 100 years ago, the Kirby company made vacuum cleaners from cast aluminium – these are now collectable items. Still in production, the Kirby vacuum cleaners have a loyal following.
