Homage to Stan

Product Design

Whilst working with Michael Frye of Concord Lighting, one of our most dynamic industrial clients, we were asked to visit one of the group companies and spend some time with Stan Weitzel, Head of Engineering. Stan was close to retirement and falls into the “fundamentalist” camp of lighting engineers. Part of Stan’s career included his great pride in developing an early linear luminaire that became standard issue in all UK submarines. Stan’s background was robust, pragmatic and functional and unlike most engineers didn’t give a damn about the way things looked while ever the worked efficiently and made sense. Homage to Stan is precisely that, a luminaire with Churchilean overtones in homage to a great engineer.
