Sconce upon a time

Machine Shop Lighting Co.

Founder Marc Knight’s days don’t just begin and end with a building, despite the fact that he helms a successful construction company in Austin. But one look at Machine Shop Lighting Co. and you might see why. Born from a dissatisfaction for available lighting choices on his building projects combined with a passion for industrial design, Marc’s creations are brilliant (pardon the pun), no-compromise amalgamations. Each fixture begins with a sketched design, which then becomes a model. This is followed by a painstaking crafting process that involves hand-blown/shaped lab-grade Pyrex glass, and precision milled and fitted steel components. The result is the kind of illumination you want to build a wall — maybe even a house — around.
