Maschinenleuchten – Mechanical Lights

Maschinenleuchten by Frank Buchwalk

Now – I’m not sure where this first exploded on to the wonderous aethernet today, but it has and oh – they are lovely.  The Maschinenleuchten, by Herr Buchwald, is a collection of ornamental lights that are very much retrospectively styled, but with a very heavy engineering influence.  Wonderous creations of valves, tubes, light horns and grids – that are hard to categorise but run the gamut from thouroughly Steampunk, to delightfully pulp!

I must thank Mr Pfeifer, Mr Lemieux and Mr Hildebrandt for pointing this gentleman’s work out to me.
