Vans, the original action sports brand and the icon of creative expression, underwent an extensive renovation in their global headquarters in Costa Mesa, CA. The Commons, where Vans 500-plus employees gather, eat, and collaborate has an open ceiling with a strong industrial vibe. White walls are punctuated with colorful art, while exposed ductwork and a corrugated metal bar add to the warehouse feel. Barn Light’s oversized Original™ Warehouse LED Pendants were chosen to light the massive space and add visual interest.
“These fit the ‘old skool’ nature of Vans,” notes Tim Long, building operations and facilities manager. “They harken back to earlier times, to the 1960s warehouse look that was prevalent here in Orange County.”
These classic American-made LED pendants feature 28″ shades and have been updated with integrated LED modules to help lower energy costs and reduce pollution. The fixtures feature 1250 lumens and a 2700K color temperature which is a warm/soft white.
“These pendants simply fit the overall vibe,” Long states. “I like that they are hand made as they were back in the 1960s. And the fact that they are made in Florida, providing U.S. jobs, is icing on the cake.”
