ADA City Sconce  
ADA Compliant Lighting

Finding products that do not sacrifice style while complying with the American's with Disabilities Act can be daunting. ADA-compliant products often look very institutional, but many of our beautiful and historic wall sconces comply with ADA requirements. These wall sconces all meet ADA guidelines for projection and are available in a wide variety of traditional or contemporary styles in standard and custom finishes. Most of our new lighting is made from recycled brass and many of our fixtures can be fitted with energy efficient compact fluorescent bulbs.

Several of Urban Archaeology’s washstands can be modified to conform to ADA requirements, providing open access under the marble top for a wheelchair.

Bauhaus Light  
Bauhaus Light

Following the Bauhaus mantra that good design
must pass the test of both high aesthetic standards and sound engineering, Eileen Gray’s stringently functional design inspired the Bauhaus Light manufactured by Urban Archaeology.

For a minimalist aesthetic, install a grid of Bauhaus Lights on the ceiling with globe shaped G40 silver bottom bulbs. For a touch of Hollywood glamour install multiple lights around a mirror. The Bauhaus Light is an inspiring and flexible lighting choice.

The wall or ceiling mounted light fixture projects
3.75” (not including the bulb) and is available cast from aluminum or recycled brass and offered in three finishes - Polished Nickel, Polished Chrome, Satin Nickel or powder coated in over 50 colors.

It can be lamped with an incandescent, medium
base bulb and is UL listed for dry locations. This fixture can be used as a wall light or as a ceiling flushmount.

Ruhlmann Handle  
Ruhlmann Style Handle

The aesthetic refinement of Art Deco master Emile-Jacques Ruhlmann’s work inspired the Ruhlmann Style Handle. This sensuous door handle, designed in 1930, is typical of Ruhlmann’s forms -- very simple, making use of gentle, almost imperceptible curves. The tip of the handle is punctuated by a bubble form, also a Ruhlmann favorite. This sleek and sophisticated design with its enduring style will enhance the beauty of any room for generations. Offered in Polished Brass, Polished Nickel, Polished Chrome and Satin Nickel with custom finishes available.
