Before the fluorescent light was introduced en masse, many factories, warehouses and workshops were lighted by heavy hanging lamps, attached to chains or thick steel wire.
By the 80s, an increasing amount of these industrial buildings were reconstructed to studio’s and living accomodation. Characteristic for these buildings were the rooms with high windows, supporting beams made out of wood or steel and the concrete or wooden floors. The original industrial lamps often stayed in use to leave the atmosphere intact.
This “loft-style” was so successful that in recent years many new built houses and renovation projects were designed in this style.
Inspired by this industrial look TierlanTijn designed an entirely new line of lighting.
The FREZOLI line is characterized by a contemporary, burly, unpolished collection with an industrial flavour from past times.
