The Evolution of 2nd Avenue Design
The evolution of this unique company is truly a story of serendipity. Sheldon Nitzky, an independent lighting sales representative, started the company when we moved his family from Pennsylvania to sunny Arizona in the mid 1980's. He bought $2,500 worth of used sheet metal equipment. Serendipitously, an out-of work, a sheet metal worker named Steve came knocking at the door. Within a short time, Steve and Sheldon's lanterns were seen on the finest homes all over the Wild West. The next step in the evolution of this product line came when a master blacksmith from Germany arrived looking for employment. He and Sheldon collaborated to design iron products from the most exquisite of classic European designs. A forge was ordered from Germany and the blacksmith began to ply his trade, creating such classics at the Miranda Lantern shown at right. Now, exquisitely turned chandeliers came from the small factory and the fires of the forge ignited a passion for creating beauty and superior product.
The final step came when a lighting representative visiting Arizona from Dallas invited the small company to show their product in his showroom at the World Trade Center. The overwhelming reception the company received at the show determined the next step forward for 2nd Ave. Design. 2nd Ave. Design launched a national product line in 1987 playing a major role in heightening the growing recognition of American made, handcrafted products. The stunning Azul Pendant has a beautiful Lapiz Blue Acrylic bowl and is such an example.
