Our Edison lamps combine recycled timber with edgy industrial materials, which reflect New Zealand’s commercial and agricultural history.

They provide statement lighting to enhance your room and stimulate discussion.

Each lamp is unique. This piece has been created from the remnant of a wharf pile which has lived underwater before being reclaimed and recycled following restoration work on the Petone and Eastbourne wharves in Wellington Harbour.

The timber is Australian Jarrah, imported and used along with other Australian hardwoods in late nineteenth century New Zealand for commercial and industrial construction. This piece is likely to be well over 100 years old.

  • The dimensions of the lamp base are: length 14cm, width 16cm, height 17 cm.
  • Weight: 3.2 kg
  • Choose a teardrop bulb or a round globe bulb in the drop down menu

The history of the timber has been retained by incorporating construction elements, bolt holes and surface marks while still exposing and polishing the beautiful end grain.

The vintage E27 40W screw fit Edison bulb has a lamp life of about 1500 hours and can be easily changed for any number of similar bulbs that are generally freely available in New Zealand.

Each lamp is tagged and tested. It has a long lead and a in-line switch.

We recommend a maximum 40W bulb.

Your Edison lamp has a felt pad on the base to protect any surface you choose to put it on.


We offer free delivery in the Wellington area, as well as a click and collect service from Plimmerton, Wellington.

Delivery charges outside of Wellington will be calculated at check-out.

Deliveries to Australia may be subject to custom regulations regarding the importation of timber and are the responsibility of the purchaser.
