Retro Steam Works

Lighting Designer Jay Lana, the creator of Retro Steam Works presents his unique up-cycled lighting decor at the second floor of The Franklin Shops. Jay started Retro Steam Works as a desire to rescue unwanted objects and giving them a new use. He specializes in creating lighting fixtures using old and reclaimed materials. Jay has always been a fan of vintage things, and discarded artifacts. “I thought, what if I tinker with them to see what turns out of it,” he says, “I like to use worn out materials as much as possible. I love the idea of creating something out of a piece that has history. Vintage and rusty stuff really catches my eye.”
