WORN COOLIE | ANGLED
What Is Worn Lighting?
We're the UK lighting manufacturer who take sustainability seriously. For more than a decade, Circular Economy has been a fundamental principle of our design, manuacturing and commerce.
Each year we take all the lighting in our factory that doesn't meet our strict quality standards and - instead of trashing it - make it available here in this 'Worn Lighting' area of our website.
How Is Worn Lighting Discounted?
Not all worn lighting (eg. one-offs) exists elsewhere for comparison, but structure is:
Grade A = 40% off new rrp
Grade B = 60% off new rrp
Grade C = 80% off new rrp
Where Does Worn Lighting Come From?
- Manufacturing Seconds
Some of the engineering and manufacturing processes we use - such as vitreous enamelling - create a low but unavoidable level of QC (quality control) failures.
- Customer Returns
We operate a generous returns policy. It's sad when things don't work out but we've built a following of customers are as obsessed about details as we are.
- End-Of-Life Buy Back
The products we manufacture are quality enough that we'll buy them back if no longer required (for credit against a future purchase) and make them available again.
- Samples + One Offs
For too many reasons to list here, we generate a quantity of non-standard versions. Sometimes for a one-off event, a photograph or just to try out an idea.
Is Worn Lighting Any Good?
All worn lighting is graded 'A', 'B' or 'C'. If you appreciate wear, inconsistencies, scars and a story to tell, maybe Worn Lighting is for you.
A - 'Very nearly perfect'. Many people can't see the flaw but we can and that's why they're here.
B - 'A close look reveals imperfections'. Lighting is generally viewed at a distance. Once installed, it's unlikely these flaws will be noticed.
C - 'Significant imperfections'. Nobody could fail to see the obvious flaw(s). Maybe you like that?
