Following on the heels of their first collection of O.C. White articulated lamps, Rejuvenation has produced their new Blenko collection that features dynamic glass bases and decorative finials recreated from patterns and glass formulas used to produce the original Blenko fixtures from the 1950s.
"We try and stay out of the way of the original design as much as possible when we produce a new collection," says Tim Wetzel, Product Design Manager at Rejuvenation. "At the same time, we have an eye towards designs that resonates with modern customers."
Wetzel and the rest of the Rejuvenation development team thought that the elegant shapes and vivid colors of the original Blenko lamps would compliment today's contemporary designs. They referenced vintage product info and worked with the current Blenko staff to recreate lamps first produced in the 1940s, '50s and '60s by Blenko's design directors Winslow Anderson and Wayne Husted.
