A Bright Collaboration

The Urban Electric Co has been one of my go-tos for lighting for several years now. They are a South Carolina based lighting company that has a wonderful collection of standard pieces, but can also make pretty much whatever design you can come up with - something I find comes in very handy.  I am truly amazed at their can-do attitude and quality of construction for each and every one of their pieces.  The UEC have had a string of prominent designers like Richard Mishaan and Amanda Nisbet create collections for them and are always looking to stay current and innovative in this ever changing industry.  So, when I read that they had teamed up with the always inspiring Steven Gambrel, principle of SR Gambrel here in NYC, I was beyond excited to see what the outcome was going to be.  I love the raw, urban edge tof the collection - the design is as refined as one would expect from Gambrel, however you still get the pops of steel, gloss and lacquer that one would expect from his creations.  I truly love each and every piece in the collection (first image below of the caged factory light is stunning), and cannot wait to start using them!
