Malaga Cove – Type DA Fixtures Complete and Ready for Powder Coat

New Haven, CT – The final lighting fixture, fixture DA, as part of Malaga Cove’s Library expansion has been fabricated and is entering it final stages of completion. All components were fabricated using aluminum which was spun on our custom made tools, and a custom opal stepped glass diffuser was made to fit on the bottom of the fixture. Every component of the fixture was custom fabricated to be historically accurate to the components as we were able to make them out using the submitted clients photograph.
