Originally designed in 1940 for factories, offices, stations and industrial units of the period. Decades later Peter Bowles discovered a mold for an industrial light. While staying true to the original quality and craftsmanship, Bowles updated the light for a modern setting. The light provided by the Titan 1 is mostly downward focused with a little up-lighting that occurs naturally. The lamp is UL listed and suitable for commercial spaces. Manufactured in a factory in the UK dedicated to green manufacturing practices. 100W (max) incandescent or compact fluorescent bulb.
