"Lighting isn't just an accent. It's statement."
Cordero Handcrafted Lighting began in 2012 with a vision to repurpose vintage appliances into unique handcrafted lighting fixtures. Originally set as a weekend project, American designer and former award-winning video editor Dan Cordero transformed an antique General Electric table fan into an elegant, one-of-a-kind Edison-bulb lamp. The repurposed lighting fixture became such an in-demand centerpiece and design statement; a new career light bulb went off for Dan (no pun intended). The rest is history.
Today, Cordero Handcrafted Lighting embodies a new era of extraordinary, custom-made lighting that offers bold and sleek statements, unique combinations of form and material, and of course, Dan’s serious attention to detail and craftsmanship. After all, lighting isn’t just an accent; it’s a statement!
North Carolina-based designer Dan Cordero launched his lighting label in 2012 following a career in award-winning video editing and producing. Dan’s passion and technical skill in arranging random footage into cohesive multimedia stories set the perfect stage for his lighting design concepts and craftsmanship. Dan quickly realized that lighting, whether in our home, retail space or restaurant creates an expressive story of our personal style and flavor.
