I had the priveledge today of taking a tour of the US facility for Ironware International. They make custom, very high end lighting. Sometimes it's hard to think of a light fixture as art, but these are. They are hand-forged in the Normandy region of France. They do have a catalog of products, but you can change the dimensions and finish of any piece, or dream up your own piece.
We are so used to seeing production pieces that are almost too perfect. The pieces from Ironware show every mark and bump of the hand-forging process. You can imagine that they would have looked the same if they were designed centuries ago. They are truly produced and finished by artists. It's was such a great treat to go in their finishing plant in Nashville today.
The Ironware pieces are sold to the trade only. Watch this video, I think you will be in awe of their talent and designs.
