In 1944, Wilton Carlyle Dinges founded the Electrical Machine and Equipment Company (Emeco) in Hanover Pennsylvania utilizing the skills of local craftsman. During WWII the U.S government gave him a big assignment, make chairs that could withstand water, salt air and sailors. Make chairs lightweight and make them strong, build them for a lifetime. Aluminum was the obvious choice, engineered for practical purposes, designed by real people.
Lightyears takes pride in creating luminous lighting products that combine tradition and renewal. The core ambition of our collection lies in the fusion of the young and the established. We love the curiosity and boldness of the up-and-coming generation, and we respect the skill and the trained eye of the experienced designers.
This collection offers modern interpretations of everyday lighting products, and we hope that our collection can shed light on new takes on how and where to use contemporary illumination. This season we proudly present three new lamps created by some of Europe's most renowned and talented designers. We hope you'll love them as much as we do.
