Raw 264: Antique Ship's Giant Air Vent Lamp


A rare and stunning antique ship's air vent, with a fabulous patina, has been transformed into a unique lamp that works as a floor light or on a table.

The light has been renovated and transformed by Utopia into a statement lamp with a historic nautical vibe. The vent has been waxed to retain its original worn patina. It stands on a specially turned oak base with around 3 metres of retro-style twisted scarlet cable, an inline switch and black plug.  All solid brass fittings have been aged to compliment the vent. The cable exits discreetly from the back.

The antique's condition reflects its life at sea with some holes near the base that have been overcome with the base design plus some near the rim - please study the photographs.

Dimensions: height 66cm x diameter of base 30cm

Raw Collection

The Raw Collection captures the essence of materials and celebrates their elemental qualities. The main inspiration for the collection are the four natural elements: fire, air, earth and water. 

Utopia's Unexpected Lights

All Utopia's lights are unique and are handmade in our studios in North Norfolk from interesting antiques and finds. They each tell a narrative and enjoy close inspection to reveal strong craftsmanship and hidden layers of interest and wonder. 

Creating our distinctive lights – the narrative behind the story
Reclaimed elegance – the artefacts that Utopia sources for its lights are deliciously old, usually antique, sometimes vintage, and this ‘narrative’ is reflected in their character, patina and form – Utopia celebrates the knocks, chips, and scratches of their stories. The inspired selection of the original object and the process it goes through to make it covetable and unique is what makes our products special – every lamp is a one-off.

Peace of Mind
Enjoy the aesthetics of top quality heritage styling: traditional twisted fabric cable, aged metal fittings, retro-style chains and historical style plugs, whilst having the peace of mind that your light is safe, having been completely wired/rewired by experts using modern fittings.

Please note that due to the large size and heavy weight of this lamp it can only be collected from our gallery in Holt, North Norfolk.
