Business Description
I am an architect, I design custom residential homes and work with contractors and developers on commercial retail projects.

I am lighting designer, manufacturer and inventor.
I design and manufacture custom upcycled LED and traditional lighting, hardware and home decor from common industrial products. I transform insulators, trafficlight lenses and railroad industrial parts into elegant and useful products that will stand the test of time one more time.

There are currently no replacement LED bulbs that work and fit in the cavity of the insulator. You can order our 12V LED fixture and add the canopy. (See attached)
