The vintage cobalt blue runway lights Tim Leefeldt turns into industrial-style lamps are authentic artifacts of aviation history—but they're also more than that. Guiding pilots as they flew people to career-making (or breaking) business meetings, far-away adventures, and family gatherings, each was a silent witness to some of the most memorable events in people's lives. Tim rescues them from forgotten retirement (and landfills) by adding electric lamp innards, a cherry wood base, and a black shade. The shade's reflective gold foil lining creates a beautiful glow on the blue glass when the lamp is switched on. Kind of like the nostalgic glow of the past, when seen from the present. Handmade in Chico, California.
