Radar Sconce was inspired by a light originally used on an industrial parts washer. Utilitarian simplicity; they loved it. When sourcing parts, Schoolhouse Electric & Supply Co. stumbled upon a 1970s stamped electrical box from one of their East Coast vendors that had the vintage tooling but hadn’t used in decades. They crushed hard on all the stamped details, including a cross, risk-of-fire warning, and wattage rating on the canopy box face.

Functional communication incorporated into the design is what makes many vintage designs so rad. The perforated guard matches the original industrial parts washer diffuser, but they developed a clever way to attach it using magnets so that the thumbscrews don’t scratch the paint. This fixture is practical, colorful and flexible—a beautiful and simple example of American industrial lighting. The Radar Sconce can be hardwired into a wall or ordered with a cord to hang anywhere you please.
