Since the early days of Manufactum, we have enjoyed a friendly relationship with the "Bolichwerke", which have been based in Odenheim, Baden, since 1919. Bolich is one of the few manufacturers of classic residential lighting still active in Germany, while its former competitors have all taken refuge in the illumination of stores and public buildings. To manufacture the shades, Bolich still operates its own metal spinning shop, for which mold making also takes place under its own roof. The metal shades are not wet-painted, but powder-coated, i.e. stove-enamelled, which is the most durable and color-fast finishing of metal surfaces after porcelain glazing/enameling. So not only because of old ties, but also because they are rarely beautiful and high quality lights: Some Bolich classics.
