Our Studio
Our Studio is located in Berlin – Neukölln. Gladly we welcome you there after an appointment, so that you can inspect the product, which is of interest to you, without obligation and try out.
A Studio visit however is not all possible. Therefore, we describe each lamp differentiated, supplemented by a detailed photo documentation. We ask them to read or watch.
We answer questions – in mutual interest best before making a purchase, to avoid possible irritation.
In addition we want to make some general remarks at this point origin and condition our lights.
About restoration
Our goal is not to recreate lighting or to make traces its history invisible. Our goal instead is to keep as much as possible of the uniqueness of a lamp restoration measures, to ensure the correct function of in accordance with current standards and necessary spare parts only high quality products to choose the style of the lamp fit.
The lights that we work up or restore, are great designs of renowned luminaire manufacturers. We are looking for a very good basic substance. Each brand has its own peculiarities and Grossman. Sockets, threads, joints, table brackets, etc. each brand are very specific; We make restoration especially – and edit them if necessary to secure a good functioning for many years. We do not fear small dents – you can decide yourself based on the photo documentation, whether you can join this viewpoint.
Our basic principle: As much maintenance as possible, so little exchange as necessary.
Each luminaire put by us on the market functions from good to outstanding – it says so in the description and you can rely.
As understood in this way, careful restoration with conscious preservation of patina, each lamp – is also through her story – a unique witness to an era.
To the condition of the lamps:
Our lights are explicitly sold as old, used and second hand objects, the luminaires are between 50 – 90 years old (and more), they show signs of wear, age, use and storage signs.
No light is new, no light is impeccable.
We sell our luminaires expressly as a fully tested, ready for use as well as used.
Price:
The pricing for our lamps is carried out on the basis of increasing cost – in particular for rare objects – as well as own expenses (rent, costs) and (less than calculated) reward for very time-intensive, individual restorations. All restorations are made exclusively in manual work.

The price is non-negotiable, but we often like to grant a discount of 10% on buying of 3 lights. However, this is not a “must” and should be cleared in advance.

For shipping, to the right of objection – and support for your decision to purchase

our lights are time-consuming and shock-proof packaging. Material and time as well as the corresponding costs are considerable. Our shipping fee this is reasonable and fair.

Please check, if you get the light delivered by the transport company, whether it is intact. If necessary, immediately make pictures, if the packaging or the lamp itself should have suffered damage. So far, this has not yet happened, however, we would like to point out.

You may exercise your right of revocation. Practice it please with a humanly respectful kind – and clarify any questions you have, if possible before the purchase, so that you can complete your purchase aware.

It is our endeavor and in terms of their and our resources, by means of a differentiated description of our lights and an intensive final inspection and to avoid unnecessary returns.

Please consider where you want to hang or install your lamp. Note, of course, the length of the cable, the location of the sockets… Maybe you also need to use an extension cord?

Please clarify also pure “style” and the question of whether a lamp in ground reference and color into your home, before.

This also contribute to a conscious purchase decision.

If the customer acquires second-hand goods, the latter shows usage traces corresponding to age and normal use and a corresponding wear condition.

Since the goods are of a kind which have an age of up to 100 years, the articles are neither classified according to the present state of the art (for example with the CE marking which was introduced in 1985), nor do they correspond to the present state of the art.

The second-hand goods have been partly restored, following standards which have been overtaken.

At the conclusion of the contract, the purchaser is aware of the fact that the second-hand goods do not correspond to the current state of the art, and can not satisfy them.

Due to the obsolete state of the art, second-hand goods are only suitable as collections objects, but not as objects of daily use.

The customer is convinced of its condition and the degree of functional efficiency in the case of second-hand goods when they are acquired and maintained, and recognizes these as contractual when the contract is concluded.

The usual usage and usage traces and wear and tear-related functional impairments which are attached to the used goods are not a defect and therefore do not entail any liability for damage or other claims for damages.

If a defect of the purchased goods exists, the buyer is initially entitled to remedy the defect, whereby he has the right to choose between rectification of defects (rectification) or replacement of an equivalent defect-free product.

The seller can refuse the repair or replacement delivery if it is only possible with disproportionate costs.

Should the supplementary performance be impossible or failed, the buyer can withdraw from the contract. He has to return the defective goods and to make a decree for drawn uses. The calculation of the value is based on the time-proportional linear impairment in comparison between the actual useful life and the expected total useful life.
