SL030 Searchlight 1940, Nickel and Brass
Right from the bridge of a 1940s Navy destroyer... heavy cast bronze and aluminum, it must be nautical. Is part of its appeal that it’s just engineered, not designed? Form follows function.... Balanced on a surveyor’s tripod. Looking like a million dollars, it smells of salt and sea while managing to convey cool and modern. It’s salvage, vintage salvage. And it translates into sophisticated home décor.
