Don't be surprised if people stop to stare at the Flux Outdoor Wall Sconce - with the fine, handcrafted curves giving the illusion of movement and a hidden source of light. Shaped by our Vermont artisans.
“I was looking to create a beautiful ‘knot’ of light and reflective metal suspended in space by lightweight cables,” explained Hubbardton Forge’s Design Team Leader, David Martin. “It actually took two years and a bit of serendipity to develop. During this time we developed our Vintage Platinum finish on aluminum, LED light-guide technology, and cable suspended fixtures.” According to Martin, “The sculptural form came first, but it was not until these technologies developed that it was able to become a fixture.” Available in multiple iterations, from large pendant to wall sconce for both in- and outdoors, and table lamp, the Flux designs add a sense of fluidity and movement with its gentle hand-shaped ribbons of metal.
*The AAMA-2604 rating for our Coastal Outdoor Finishes (-14, -75, -77, -78) puts these among the most durable, resistant finishes available for corrosion resistance, color fastness and durability. These coatings deliver exceptional hardness, scratch & mar resistance for enhanced performance in seacoast environments.
To properly maintain your outdoor products, follow these expert suggestions:
Methods for cleaning the powder coat finish depend on the characteristics of the surface soil. Use water and mild soap or detergent with a sponge or soft cloth for light surface soils. For medium to heavy soils a mild solvent, such as mineral spirits, can be used for removal of grease, sealants or caulking compounds. Spot testing should be performed first to ensure there is no coating damage or staining from cleaning materials.
Outdoor lighting fixtures in coastal environments have the greatest risk of corrosion, but even inland lighting has to combat oxidation due to high-humidity conditions. Wherever your outdoor lighting placement may be, Hubbardton Forge has you covered. Made for the outdoors, but elegant enough for indoor use as well.
We offer some of the most robust finishes available for the outdoors, and our Finish Specialist works to continuously improve durability with new formulations that are rigorously tested.
Dark Sky Friendly outdoor fixtures are designed with downward-facing only beams and reflections of light. The absence of up-light helps to minimize light pollution, protecting stargazing and wildlife for future generations. Photometric data for building requirements is available on request.
