CAMPBELL LEVY DESIGNS LLC has been designing and building custom Crankshaft and DOHC Head Lamps since 1974. Recently they have expanded their range to include one off tables of many different configurations, which include glass and marble elements. Be sure to check their website and Facebook page for the latest editions to the line.

Campbell Levy Designs began in 1974 when Edward Levy built his first crankshaft lamp. “The idea came when I saw a BMW engine taken apart, and the architectural qualities of the crankshaft were immediately appealing to me.”

The prototype lamp which emerged from the BMW became the first of a long line of custom crankshaft lamps to come, and it still sits on the desk of the Rocky Mountains’ oldest BMW & Mercedes dealer.

The lamps were an instant hit among all of the premier automobile dealers in the Colorado area. Each piece of art maintained extreme attention to detail, and the intricacies of each new lamp were obvious. Even from the beginning, nothing short of perfection was acceptable.

Edward Levy by no means was a stranger to the automobile scene. He began his career in Manhattan, selling Maserati’s, Ferrari’s, Lamborghini’s, Porsche’s, BMW’s, and Mercedes. His first and favorite cars included a brand new Austin Healey 3000 and a Lotus Elan SE coupe.  Many more cars followed.

Recently, Ed’s son Campbell joined the venture. “Along with everyone else, I’ve always admired my Dad’s crankshaft lamps, and I thought it was only natural for us to share his creations with as many people as we could.”

Campbell Levy attended Knox College in Illinois for two years, where he played soccer. In 2001, he transferred to the University of Denver, where he graduated with degrees in Political Science and English in 2003. Following university, he pursued his passion for the outdoors in Whistler, British Columbia, where he pursued skiing and mountain biking. He rode his bike back down the Coast from Whistler to California, and then returned to Colorado to pursue the business of building lamps with his father.

Campbell Levy Designs’ goal is to continue to build custom lamps to the highest possible standard, and to share them with fellow automobile afficionados all over the world.

We are finding that the more lamps we build, the more creative we become. We constantly have new ideas, and there is no limit to what we can create. Whether we are building a completely custom creation, or simply building a classic, you will love our lamps as much as we do. Your satisfaction is guaranteed.

We are looking forward to showing our lamps at the RETRO AUTO exhibit at the Pebble Beach Concours D’Elegance in August 2011, we hope to see you there.
