ALL THE FUN OF THE FAIR
The unique visual aesthetic of fairgounds is woven into the fabric of the UK’s cultural and design history. The traditional experience is carefully designed to elevate all walks of life beyond the reality of their daily lives, through sensory overload of sounds, smells, visuals, motion and magical lighting.
‘It was the flashing lights, and the noise of the machines, and the loud, loud music’ ― Julie Burchill, Sugar Rush
The UK hosts 30% of all 35 surviving pre-war rollercoasters in the world. Blackpool’s Pleasure Beach is home to six of these original wonders. Margate’s Dreamland is home to the most recently restored, as part of designer Wayne Hemingway’s award winning work there, and is now ‘the most Instagrammable pleasure park… ever” ― Time Out
WHAT IS FAIRGROUND INDUSTRIAL LIGHTING?
Rows of evenly spaced lightbulbs on a simple steel frame. The lighting design standard of fairgrounds from late 1800’s onwards.
They’re used for practical illumination and to create an indulgent atmosphere, an escape from the utilitarian homes, offices and factories of the era.
WHY IS THE TREND RE-EMERGING NOW
Original fairground industrial lighting was magical, but costly and difficult to maintain.
So we utilised energy-efficient, long-life technology to reimagine original fairground industrial lighting. The fairground hanging lamp is a modern, practical luxury, now within reach of all design projects.
The simplicity, quality and functionality of fairground originals for interior design projects today. Designed and built with total attention to detail. Heavyweight, professional grade lights manufactured in a range of sizes to fit design schemes.
