News from Skinflint Design
Here at Skinflint HQ the team have been hard at work despite the blustery Autumn weather, with trips away visiting defunct factories in the North of England, airfields in Essex and, most excitingly, researching the beautiful Scottish modernist monument to coal-fired power generation, Cockenzie Power Station.
The team at Skinflint were thrilled to salvage the majority of the lights from the former power station at Cockenzie in Scotland. Many well known lighting brands such as Benjamin, Lacent and Holophane were installed to illuminate cavernous halls that once echoed with the roar of turbines powered by coal fired furnaces.

It's such an evocative image isn't it? The traffic light hanging over the freeway or interchange... That's exactly where our US Traffic Light Pendants started their lives, once they'd finished their useful service they found their way to the Skinflint workshops where we transformed them into the stylish modern lights they are today.
