Dan Cordero - Handcrafted Lighting

Inspired by the ingenuity of the famous Thomas Edison light bulb, Dan Cordero Handcrafted Lighting began in 2012 with the idea to repurpose vintage appliances into unique handcrafted lighting accents. American designer and former award-winning video editor Dan Cordero transformed a single antique table fan into a one-of-a-kind Edison bulb lamp - and the rest was history. Cordero’s studio now showcases over 100 handcrafted lighting accents each with their own history and expression of mood and style. From vintage motorcycle headlight lamps to sleek Edison bulb glass pendant lamps, Cordero’s lighting is a hallmark of true creativity and craftsmanship. With a growing international following, Dan Cordero Handcrafted Lighting has been featured in multiple restaurants, design studios, celebrity homes as well as praised in media outlets such as The London Magazine and The Chicago Tribune.

Where it all began….
As a boy I would take apart my toys and remove batteries from every remote control or appliance in the house (much to my parents’ dismay). To this day I can’t tell you what I did with those batteries or the remotes’ back covers, but they just needed to come out.  And so the fascination began. How does a toy work? What makes it run, sing, jump…and eventually break? Later my curiosity led to film work. How does one take random pieces of footage and create a new cohesive story?  After feeding my curiosity for many years I finally learned how to rebuild, restore, and reclaim – with a creative twist.

Allow me to inspire and reclaim some creativity in your life...I promise I won’t steal your batteries.
