Factorylux industrial pendant lighting – including light bulbs cages – made an unexpected appearance on the new Channel 4 series The Taste earlier this week. We’d not heard from the production company that the lighting had been specified, so it was a surprise when we tuned into Channel 4 on Tuesday.
The cook-off show is hosted by Nigella Lawson with American chef and food maverick Anthony Bourdain and critically-acclaimed French chef Ludo Lefebvre. It’s an import from the US where it has been very successful. 25 contestants, varying from gifted amateurs to trained chefs, battle it out in a series of cooking challenges.
The industrial pendants specified by the art department for the programme are used to light the crux of the show – the blind tasting table – and were built from the large balloon cages with the silver nickel plate finish, vintage brass E27 lamp holders and the classic pear shape squirrel cage bulbs.
The Factorylux Made For You service can be used to create a range of industrial pendant lighting. All the light bulb cages and lamp shades can be configured using Made For You – from the smallest 80mm miniature shade to the largest 500mm reflector, and from the deluxe gold to the uncompromisingly industrial rusted cages. Every light shade and bulb cage in the range is made entirely in the UK by skilled metalworkers. When you’ve created your design, every pendant light is hand built in the UK by a Factorylux technician and individually tested and certified to BS EN 60598.
