Classic New York Walk Dont Walk signs recycled into lights

Dont1

It's an icon of a now bygone era, but you can have one of the New York Walk Dont Walk signs in your home – as a domestic light.


The signs hit New York back in 1952, helping the good folk of that city cross the road for almost 50 years, before being decommissioned in 2000 and replaced with more modern LED signs.  Watch an old film about the city and you'll see one, trust us.

Felix has acquired a number of those decommissioned lights and reworked them as pieces of lighting for the home. These original signs now have new circuitry which will enable the 'Walk Dont Walk' to flash at timed intervals. All signs are also fitted with newly-wired porcelain Edison screw lamp holders, three meters of three-core silk flex and a UK plug.

Good for indoor and outdoor use, not to mention showing off, they sell for a not insignificant £825 in either classic yellow or aluminium. Limited editions obviously.
