RubyIndustrial Design Lamps


Dating from the 1940s, these vintage hand forged tongs from the metal forming industry (predominantly aerospace

& automotive sectors), are used to create our unique lamps.


Becking tongs were used in the manufacture of ring forgings, Billet tongs were used in the manufacture of bosses and levers and Swage tongs were used in the manufacture of shaft forgings.


These tools, once used to manufacture aluminium, titanium and stainless steel forgings on 20cwt, 30cwt & 40cwt power hammers - discarded and rusting - are transformed by RubyIndustrial Design.

This vintage benzoline gas torch, circa 1950, was made in Eskilstuna, Sweden.  Gas torches such as this were used in the Borfors Munitions Factory, close to KFE, the maker of this "The Swedish Lamp".

RubyIndustrial transform vintage gas torches into delightful table lamps using braided electric cable & and edison bulbs,
