About OCL Architectural Lighting
OCL was founded in 1973 on traditional values and high-quality craftsmanship. With over 45 years of experience in the lighting industry, our passion for architectural lighting was established years ago, when The Original Cast Lighting® began restoring and replicating classic lighting fixtures in a small workshop in St. Louis, Missouri.
Today, OCL manufacturers innovative, high-performance, specification-grade architectural and decorative LED luminaires. Our talented and experienced designers and engineers work with the latest technologies, using cutting-edge processes to create innovative and enduring luminous forms.
