Oporto in Leeds chose Factorylux industrial copper shades to light its bar. Oporto is a popular bar on Call Lane in central Leeds attracting a mix of professionals and students. With live music, fair prices and liberal opening hours (12 noon to 4am on Saturdays), we can see why it does so well. Inside, the set up is simple: a well stocked bar, exposed brick walls, stripped wooden furniture and industrial lighting.
Factorylux’s industrial copper shades get pride of place – half-a-dozen are hung in a line down the centre of the bar. The shades are pure copper rather than copper painted or plated and machined in the UK. Oporto paired the shades with grey fabric cable, silver lighting chain and large globe filament light bulbs from the Factorylux Modular range of lighting components.
The Factorylux shade collection opens up a huge range of design choices: there are seven sizes – from the 80mm miniature to the huge 500mm reflector – six enamel colours, and six metallic finishes including copper, verdigris, galvanised, stainless steel, silver nickel plate and genuine nine carat gold.
All the shades are now available with Factorylux ‘Made for You’ – the world’s first next-day bespoke lighting service. You choose the components and Factorylux looks after assembly and testing to the applicable British standards. The pendants ship for next working day delivery in the UK, free go charge – ready for quick and easy installation.
