Portal Light A Design Collaboration

Collaborations vary enormously depending on their goals, settings, teams and resources. Yet all collaborations are a human activity, and the following six elements play an important role in all of them.

  1. Motivation
  2. Communication
  3. Diversity
  4. Sharing
  5. Support
  6. Problem Solving

 

When Karice was approached by Mark Kinsley of Lake + Wells, we were thrilled and excited to begin work on the Portal Lighting project.  Their request was for Karice to get help with the design engineering and prototyping of the new lighting concept.  The motivation for the project was the We Love Lamp that was a set for September 2018, as Portal was selected as a finalist in the 2018 competition.

Portal Lighting Concept for We Love Lamp 2018

Communication

Today’s technology with email and digital drawings,  the information about the Portal project was very clear.  The question was, how to bring the lighting concept to life.  This is where Karice, veteran lighting and product designer began the process of bring the Portal light project to life.

Design Process

Once presented with the design concept, the team at Karice went to working envisioning how the light could be built.  Numerous methods were analyzed, and much though went into designing the most cost efficient way to produce the light.  Brass with it’s popular appeal was the first choice of metal substrate for the project.  However, due to the expense of this material, and difficulty to process, it was decided to proceed with an aluminum substrate.  A solid billet aluminum T6061 material was selected for the Project.

The first process was to cut the profile to shape using our Omax 80160 water jet machining center.  Further processing involved the use of a CNC milling machining to refine the finishing details.  An anodized light gold finish was selected to mimic brass.  The Center panel of the light is genuine mirror polished brass for the reflectivity of a mirror.

Illumination Technology

Perfect for creating illumination even in the most diverse designs, LED technology was the only choice for this project.    The light gives  an indirect glow.  To avoid the appearance of bright hot spots, a frosted acrylic diffuser was selected  to hide the LEDs from view.

Lighting is a major component of any functional office space. A properly lit work environment offers up a host of benefits, from reducing eye strain and improving employee wellbeing to boosting productivity and lowering energy consumption. But with so many options to choose from, finding the best lighting solution for your office can be tricky. To help cut through the confusion, our Canadian lighting manufacturers have put together some handy tips on how to bring the best lighting into your workplace.

Ambient lighting

Ambient lighting is key for adding warmth and style to your office. Whether you have lamps, installed fixtures, or recessed lighting, you’ll want to make sure the light is just the right amount. Too much or too little light will not only cause headaches but also result in eye strain.

lighting design vancouver, lighting in vancouver, lighting vancouver, modern lightingTrack Lighting

Track lighting is booming in popularity these days—and for a host of illuminating reasons. Upping the design flair to offices everywhere, track lighting has a ton going for it. For instance, they come in a wide range of styles, provide versatility in use, work as task lighting, save space, and are easy to install and configure.

Lamps

Perfect for creating an inclusive work environment, lamps provide an intimate gathering place for meetings or social opportunities. If you are looking for a way to boost concentration and team build, lamps make great, warm-glow lighting options for your workspace.

 

Task lighting

Overhead fluorescent lighting can cause a wide range of health issues, from hyperactivity to sleeping problems. Task lighting, however, shines directed light on your work, keeping the glare away from your eyes. To ensure your employees are happy and healthy, switch to task lighting with low-glare bulbs.

Dimmable lighting

Going with dimmable lighting allows you to control how little or how much light you need at any given time. Regulating the amount of light will also translate into lower energy consumption—and that’s good news for your operating expenses and your wallet. For more savings, consider installing timers or sensors in your workplace.

Consult with professional lighting manufacturers

Karice Lighting in Marble Home in West Vancouver – Inspired by Design.

Karice Lighting Marble Construction created specifically for this home.  Welcome to 2592 ROSEBERRY AVE, West Vancouver where you will find the most INCREDIBLE VIEW that you have ever seen in West Vancouver, right in the middle of DUNDARAVE VILLAGE. Built by Marble Construction, the Winner of BEST SINGLE FAMILY HOME CANADA 2016, 2017 and 2018. STUNNING, is an understatement of the beauty of this home. The incredible open concept main floor plan with kitchen to living room to walk out stunning southern exposed decks with incredible infinity swimming pool with attached BBQ lounge area with hot tub completely take in incredible PANORAMIC views of Downtown, Lions Gate Bridge and the Ocean like you’ve never seen before. High end everything. A MUST SEE!

Karice was thrilled when approached by Marble to place three of our lights into this stunning home.

Lighting Installed – Customized for this Home

Working directly with the builder with V Plus Illumination Design, it was decided to install three fixtures from Karice’s comprehensive lighting collection.  As fitting for this custom luxury home, the fixtures were customized specifically for this master piece home.

Entrance – Linked Luxennea with unique details

Our Linked Luxennea Chandelier was chosen for the front entrance.  Custom details were a must for the location.  The size of the light was modified to fit the space.  Typically sold as linked 5ft diameter luxennea lights, for this project, the size was changed to two 4ft diameter luxennea lights.  The direction of the lighting was also customized.  The lighting direction here is pointing down versus pointing in.  A custom gun metal color was selected to finish both the entrance and living room lighting pieces.  For the Living Room, a custom sized Diamond Luxennea Series 2 LED light was chosen.

Cascading Chandelier over three floors

A unique custom 15 light installation using our Electron Pendants was created in the staircase.  V Plus Illumination decided on how the fifteen lights would be suspended to create the best display of lights for the location.  The end result is spectacular.

Sneak Peak to Da Vinci
Da Vinci Collection – Inspired by the Renaissance Man
Da Vinci Collection – Inspired by the Renaissance Man 900 549 Karice Lighting - Custom Lighting Vancouver

Da Vinci Collection – Inspired by the Renaissance Man.

Da Vinci Collection – Inspired by the Renaissance Man.

The Da Vinci Collection is inspired by one question: if Leonardo, the great Renaissancian, were alive today, how would he incorporate 21st Century technology into his designs?  Over the last ten months, this has been Karice’s inspiration and guide in creating this handcrafted luminaire series.

Luxury Home and Design Show – 2018

At the 2018 Luxury Home & Design Show, the Italian Renaissance is re-envisioned,  and when it came time to look for our inspiration, the choice was simple – Leonardo Da Vinci.  For Maurice Dery, co-founder and lead designer at Karice Lighting, the mission quickly became clear: to make use of mechanisms produced by Da Vinci to play with light, to make light move many different directions.  The team at Karice has created especially for the show a fixture that uses a pulley, combined with mirrors and magnifying glass, to create a dynamic play of light.

Booth Display – Partner with Kalu Interiors

Karice has worked with KALUInteriors to create this space, reminiscent of Da Vinci’s study.  It combines old and new elements.  For example, its brass components have an Old World feel, but, innovation is represented in new materials, such as the Mirror Flex Wall Coverings provided by ODYSSEY Wallcoverings.  The central chandelier, created by Karice, is the primary light source; using magnifiers, it bounces light throughout the space to compliment the reflective gold wall coverings, the extravagant porcelain slabs provided by LAMINAM Stone Tile, and the beautiful authentic antiques provided by SCOTT LANDON ANTIQUES.

We are so thankful to our Sponsors

We would not be able to do this display without the help of our many LHDS sponsors.  Special thanks to Kalu Interiors, Best Builders Ltd., Diffusion Lighting, Laminam Stone Tile, Mirian Aroeste, Odyssey Wallcoverings, Project X and Tall Tree Construction.

Here we are on BC Highway 7 East, somewhere between Mission and Harrison Mills. … Within several minutes you reach a small but picturesque Elbow Lake.  This is the site we chose to film our Electron Pendants.

What are we crazy?  Who dips their light into the lake?

Electron Pendants submerged in Elbow Lake.  Just for fun you say.  Why not?  The day was sunny and warm, and we wanted to experiment with our light, filming and photographing in the great outdoors.  Super Natural BC, what better setting to photograph and film your lighting products.

Numerous Videos are Shot

We filmed our light over top of the lake, in the lake, and even used our DJI Mavic Drone to get an awesome arial view of our light over top of Elbow Lake.  Check out this video clip HERE

We even have footage inside the lake

Using a waterproof video camera, our electron was filmed under water.  Just for fun!

Unique Lighting Design
Unique Lighting Design for JJ Bean Cafe – UBC Campus
Unique Lighting Design for JJ Bean Cafe – UBC Campus 1024 768 Karice Lighting - Custom Lighting Vancouver

Karice is always thrilled to be able to work on projects requiring Unique Lighting Design.  From concept to reality this is what we do every day.  Fueled by passion to create unique lighting designs our team can’t wait to get started on the next project. LED illumination has opened up the door to lighting design, it is the way of the future.

Unique Lighting Design created for the new JJ Bean Cafe – Iconic plus two elements of discovery.

In  January 2017, Karice was approached by Dialog Design to help them with the lighting design for the new proposed JJ Bean cafe on the UBC campus, set to open in the summer of 2017.  We were presented with a challenge to design a lighting installation for the new cafe that would create an element of discovery.  They needed the light to be unique to the space and  iconic 

 Our team went to work.  We love the idea of simplistic architectural lighting and random architectonic shapes.  Using LED lighting channels, we created a lighting concept  that changes depending on the viewing angle.  We were able to create a piece that was not only iconic, but included not one, but TWO elements of discovery.

These “elements of discovery” have to be seen to be believed.  Viewing the installation from below on the ground floor reveals “U-B-C” while observing the same installation straight-on from the second-floor spells “J-J-B” (initials of the cafe).

This iconic piece was custom developed for the UBC location, which opened in September of 2017.

The cafe at UBC is the first of the chain to open on a University campus.  The size and shape of the building is long  and narrow, with plenty of nooks requiring creative lighting solutions.

Undaunted by the challenging architecture, the lighting designers on this project designed the concept in January 2017.  It was approved in April and the team built the custom piece, as well as other custom lighting in this location, in May and June of 2017.

So unique, visiting the cafe on the UBC campus to view the lighting alone is a worthy endeavor.

Dimensions, materials used to create this Masterpiece

This lighting feature in the Cafe at the UBC campus in Vancouver, BC consists of nine linear LED lighting fixtures.  These fixtures are individual shapes that make up the random shape of the lighting installation featured here.  The random placement of the nine linear lights is intentional.  From every viewing angle the installation appears random.  However, when viewed in specific locations, the elements of discovery in this unique lighting installation miraculously appear.

The lights are arranged in three sections.  Section 1 is “U”, section 2 is “B” and section 3 is “C”.  The linear shapes are cut and welded using a custom proprietary 3″ x 3″ aluminum extrusion.  The overall size of this installation is approximately 13 ft W x 6 ft D x 5 ft H.  A frosted clear cast acrylic diffuser eliminates the hot spots, but offers the maximum illumination and lumen output.

Suspended by aircraft cables, the lights appear to float, creating this unique, intriguing lighting installation on the UBC Campus.

Karice is able to design the perfect light for your space.  You are only limited by your imagination and budget.

RETTA inspired by Nature is what you will receive with this new lighting design.  We offer lighting for today’s modern world.  Simplicity and clean lines for today.

RETTA Inspired by Nature

Retta inspired by Nature.

Meet Retta.  Inspired by nature’s log jam on the shores of BC’s beautiful Harrison Lake, Retta takes her name from the Italian word for “straight line”.  Retta’s meticulously machined end caps with light gold anodized finish resembling brass, decorate the ends of this trendy design.  The grooves in the end caps create visual interest with three smooth surfaces.

Interior designers are seeking elegant, sophisticated, slim-lined lighting fixtures that won’t impede the view of the clients.  With Retta we have a classy, sleek fixture set to highlight any residential, corporate, or hospitality design.  The Retta lighting line is a fresh remake of the minimalistic linear light.

Retta’s slim shape allows for variety in its installation – suspended, surface mounted or recessed.

Lighting on Display at the Volvo Booth at IDS Vancouver, BC

Seventeen Retta lights were used in a car display at IDS Vancouver 2017.  Arranged in a curved fashion along the custom canopy, the lights mimic the car tracks of the vehicle.  The 6ft x 18ft canopy, also designed by Karice, served up an additional branding opportunity for the car manufacturer.

Sure to be stylish in any setting, the light body is a blackened bronze anodized finish and frosted clear acrylic diffusers – a perfect match with the end caps.  Retta is available in 18″, 24″, 36″ and 48″ lengths.  Custom installations can be made up to 20ft long.  The light source is an integral LED strip available in 2700K, 3000K and 4100K.

LIT Design Awards - Electron WIns
Electron Pendant Wins at 2017 LIT Design Awards Competition
Electron Pendant Wins at 2017 LIT Design Awards Competition 718 1024 Karice Lighting - Custom Lighting Vancouver

Electron  is announced as a winner of the 2017 LIT Design Awards Competition in Los Angeles.

Electron Pendant Wins at 2017 LIT Design Awards Competition

Electron Pendant wins at 2017 LIT Design Awards Competition. It has won in the Pendant and Designer Lighting Categories.

In physics, the electron is a subatomic particle with a negative elementary, electric charge.  Electrons radiate energy in the form of photons when accelerated.   Thus, begins the inspiration for the light that we have designed and titled “The Electron”. The Electron is simple and refined, yet modern and futuristic.

The Electron pendant is part of a lighting series that has been in development since December 2015.  The series now includes a wall sconce and pendant (2016 release).

The Electron reflects efficient engineering, without compromising beauty or functionality. It is illuminated with energy efficient LEDs and diffused by the frosted clear acrylic along the inner and outer rings. The double-sided lighting maximizes illumination, while the LED maximizes efficiency. Aside from its beauty, the frosted acrylic also serves as a diffuser to eliminate hot spots.

Like the subatomic particle, the light is deceptively simple. But as you delve deeper, its ingenuity is revealed. On the front surface, there are no visible fasteners on either side of the rings, which allows for a clean and refined finish.   The light is suspended from co-axial cable which offers a clean suspended appearance.  The light appears to be floating in mid-air.

 

LIT Tokyo Exhibition – May 12th – 16th 2018

Karice’s Electron Pendant has been chosen by LIT Design Awards to be included in the Tokyo LIT Exhibition, among 30 projects selected from the 2017 LIT Winners.  The exhibition will occur at the Space Market venue in Tokyo, Japan on May 12th to 16th 2018.

Lighting Designers Create a brand new lighting design for the Karice Lighting Line – Introducing our Ennea Wall Sconce and Ennea Pendant.

“Lighting Designers Create” – Maurice L. Dery and Jordan N. Dery collaborate to create our Ennea Lighting series.  New lights created as the Love Child of our Diamond Luxennea and Electron Wall Sconce.

In the fall of 2016, our client from New Market Ontario came to Karice wanting wall sconces to match his newly installed Diamond Luxennea in his foyer.

The lighting designers of Team Karice immediately went to work to design a new lighting fixture.  Using Auto-CAD inventor, 3-D conceptual images were created and presented to the client.  The client loved what he saw, and made a suggestion as to how he would like to see the design changed.  The chamfered edged on the Electron a minimal.  The chamfered edge on the Ennea was made to be the full 1/4″ thickness of the aluminum plate used in the light.  We loved how this created an even greater angular look to the light.

Ennea Wall Scone

Ennea Wall Sconce

The Diamond Luxennea chandelier that was made for our client in New Market used LEDs with a cool lighting temperature.  To develop the Ennea Wall sconce using matching color temperature, research had to be done to obtain a product that would work.  The first LEDs we purchased were scrapped as they created Hot Spots.  Finally, we were able to source a suitable LED that would work for our client.   This of course gave Karice additional flexibility to offer its clients in the future.  The Ennea lighting products are available in both warm and cool color temperatures.

The lighting designers at Karice also took the time to design and develop a Pendant model in the Ennea Series.  Pictured below is a look at the Ennea Tri-Pendant.

Custom lighting installation for Caffe Artigiano

CAFFE ARTIGIANO – Park Royal, West Vancouver, BC 1024 768 Karice Lighting - Custom Lighting Vancouver

New Custom lighting installation –  Box Interiors designed a beautiful custom lighting installation for the newly renovated Caffe Artigiano in Park Royal in West Vancouver.  An eight foot diameter lighting ring was the design concept brought to Karice by Box Interior Design.  The end result is spectacular a total eye catching feature to the cafe.  Our Caffe Artigiano project page shows more pictures of this custom lighting installation made for this location.

CUSTOM LIGHTING for Caffe Artigiano in Park Royal – Karice and Box Interior Design collaborate.

Tricia Link of Box Interior Design in Vancouver collaborated with Karice when bringing their lighting design to life for the newly renovated Caffe Artigiano in Park Royal.  The lighting concepts were drawn up by Tricia, and Karice went to work to see how to make the design work.  The concept included an 8ft diameter lighting ring that would suspend nine Rejuvenation Cedar & Moss 14″ pendants.  Faced with the challenge of enabling the lights to be re-lamped was one obstacle that had to be overcome.  Maurice came up with the idea of individual clamping brackets that held the pendant wires into place.  This eliminated the need to store excess wire in the ring that would be needed facilitate the re-lamping process.   Our next challenge was a bigger one.  We had completed our shop drawings, and asked the question, “will the eight foot ring fit through the door?”  Unfortunately the cafe was equipped with only a single door.  This obstacle would make it impossible to fit an eight foot diameter ring through the door.  Back to the drawing board, Karice redesigned the light so that it would come apart in three pieces. Once shop drawings were approved Karice went to work to build the ring.

AutoCAD was used to draft up the shop drawings for this lighting installation.  Pieces were cut on our Omax Water Jet Machining Center.   Using solid sheet aluminum the light was crafted with three layers and three sections.  Each section joins together using overlapping joints and fasteners.  A unique canopy was also built for the project.  A unique clamping mechanism was built into the canopy that would clamp all nine pendant wires to keep them taut once the light was hanging.  This is another service the team a Karice offers.  Always trying to think all possible outcomes that will occur from an installation such as this.

Once the lighting ring was completed a pre-assembly was completed on our mezzanine.  This is one step that we always complete.  Pre-assembly assures that our product will fit in its final home.

Box Interior Design has also posted photos of this project on their website and can be viewed HERE.

Romer's Custom Lighting
ROMER’S BURGER BAR – Port Moody
ROMER’S BURGER BAR – Port Moody 1024 683 Karice Lighting - Custom Lighting Vancouver

New Vintage Custom LED lighting design –  Vintage and modern team up to create the new lighting installation at the Romer’s Burger Bar in Port Moody.  Four brand new lighting concepts were brought to life by the team at Karice.  The end result was stunning, adding to the warmth and glow of this new dining location on Morrissey road.  Our ROMERS project page shows more pictures of these custom lights made for this location.

CUSTOM LIGHTING for Romer’s Burger Bar in Port Moody – Karice and CLO Design collaborate.

Robert Clark of CLO Design in Seattle contacted Karice when trying to source lighting for the new ROMERS Burger Bar in Port Moody.  The lighting concepts were drawn up by Robert, and Karice immediately fell in love.  Karice has been working with CLO Design for years, and has always loved what they come up with.  They are innovators in their own right.  To work on this new restaurant location was exciting, and we couldn’t wait to get started.

The look and feel of the restaurant has a vintage appeal.  We loved it.  As you enter into the front door one is greeted by two large starburst style chandeliers.  Each light is equipped with vintage edison style LED bulbs.  The lights are huge at a 5ft diameter globe shape.

In the dining area two large 5ft diameter chandeliers were made.  Each light has (x24) candelabra bulbs.  Feit Electric’s new edison LED Bulbs were perfect for the light.  Feit has done an amazing job on reproducing the warm glow of the incandescent bulbs.

The six booth tables have a steel pendant light that hangs over each location.  The steel shades were made with thin gauge mild steel, and were left with a natural steel finish.  Each shade was coated with a clear epoxy finish to preserve the look.  Each steel pendant is illuminated with a single edison LED bulb.

Upstairs in the Growler room is an inviting space for sitting at the bar.  Three large rings and custom 8-lamp chandeliers were meticulously installed on the ceiling on the mezzanine level.

GOOD ANIMAL and KARICE COLLABORATE ON CUSTOM LIGHTING
GOOD ANIMAL and KARICE COLLABORATE ON CUSTOM LIGHTING 1024 768 Karice Lighting - Custom Lighting Vancouver

Good Animal, Karice Enterprises collaborate to create Custom Design Pendant Lights

In December 2014, Karice was approached by Vancouver Lighting Designer, Hesam Ghaemi to collaborate with him on a new custom lighting installation for the new Earls to be built at Mall Millennia in Orlando, Florida, USA.  Hesam had a new idea for custom design pendant lights.

Two lighting designs were quoted to Good Animal in February of 2015.  Only one of Hesam’s lighting designs was selected by the Earls Design Team to be used in their new project in Orlando.

Shortly thereafter, the project was awarded to Good Animal to build fifteen new custom designed pendant lights for the new location in Orlando.  Karice was contracted by Good Animal to further design and craft the pendant lights, and to bring Hesam’s vision to life.

Karice immediately went to work to prepare the shop drawings for the project.  Round four shop drawings were approved by Earls in the fall of 2015.  In December, Karice began the process of drafting the mechanical construction drawings.  Production began shortly thereafter.

Fifteen custom design pendant luminaires were crafted by the team at Karice for the new project.  Design challenges included the sloped ceiling that the lights were to be mounted to.  An approximate angle was provided by architects.  Using this angle Karice designed a two piece canopy that was sloped as well as adjustable.  Site conditions are never what they seem, so  this was calculated into the design of the custom ceiling canopy.

Slight aesthetic design changes did occur along the way.  The back metal diffusers were originally black, and were changed to gold.  The height of the glass diffusers were modified, to suit the bulb that was eventually selected.  Everything had to be perfect for the new project, and perfect it was.  The final result was stunning.

DIAMOND LUXENNEA – New Custom Installation for Residential Home
DIAMOND LUXENNEA – New Custom Installation for Residential Home 768 1024 Karice Lighting - Custom Lighting Vancouver

In June of this year, our client, Angelo Minichiello. contacted us from New Market, Ontario.  Angelo loved our Diamond Luxennea chandelier.  He had the perfect spot in mind for this custom light – A grand splash was to be made in his front entrance.  Angelo wanted a few subtle changes made in the design.  The top, seven foot diameter ring was to have the lights point up and out, instead of down.  Color temperature was also key, so a 6500K color temperature was selected for the LEDs that would be used in the light.

shop drawing

Karice went to work on the shop drawings for our client.  One hurdle to overcome was the sloped ceiling where the light would be mounted.  Using trigonometry, Angelo was able to provide the team at Karice with the exact angle of the ceiling.  Using this custom angle, a custom two-piece, sloped canopy was designed and made for the light.

With the new light to be installed, it was important to our client that the existing lights in the house be modified, so that there would be continuity in the newly updated space.  Four existing pendants were dismantled, and all parts were shipped to Karice for re-finishing.  New hexagonal ceiling canopies were also crafted by Karice to complete the tie in.  The parts were sandblasted, and an identical oil rubbed bronze finish was applied to the new light, new ceiling canopies and existing lighting parts.

Once the custom light was completed, we went to work carefully packaging everything for it’s long journey across the country.  A custom wooden crate was made to package the finished product.  A week later, the light arrived safely at it’s new home.  Once installed, the final results could not be more pleasing.  The Diamond Luxennea, is perfect in it’s new home.  The pictures show the stunning results.

Sprocket LED Chandelier
The Sprocket
The Sprocket 1024 576 Karice Lighting - Custom Lighting Vancouver

Introducing Maurice Dery’s Sprocket

How many 10-foot by 10-foot (3m x 3m) chandeliers showcase 37 years of experience, while incorporating one-of-a-kind energy efficient lighting technology?  Only one.  The Sprocket is the culmination of Maurice Dery’s career as an industrial artisan.  Maurice wanted to create an epic project to reflect his custom lighting design expertise, while highlighting his architectural metalworking experience.  The Sprocket reflects just that.

Karice Sprocket and Chain LED Chandelier

Sprocket and Chain Industrial Chandelier

The gigantic LED chandelier is a functioning gear, made to scale.  The inner 5-ft diameter steel sprocket was meticulously crafted to not only interlock with the chain but to have a finish that reflects the true wear-and-tear of a real sprocket.  The outer aluminum chain has been built in modules, so it can be as long or short as desired.  Both the chain and sprocket have acrylic facing, illuminated by dimmable energy-efficient LEDs.

Suspended by aircraft cables, the Sprocket appears to be floating in mid-air.  As you’ll notice, there are no power cables or visible fasteners.  It’s been designed to hide all ‘visual pollution’ to give the highest aesthetic quality.  

Karice lighting technology

Innovative Lighting Technology

To create this innovative lighting fixture, Karice had to invent its own lighting system.  The light is powered and supported by one-of-a-kind lighting technology invented by Karice.

This is the type of innovation Maurice Dery and the team at Karice Enterprises are known for.  When technology or components don’t exist, they create them!  This love for creating the “impossible” is the essence of the Sprocket.  It’s why Karice exists.

West Coast Canadian Design and Manufacturing

Vancouver is increasingly becoming a world-renowned design hub. This is a well-known fact. What is less known is that manufacturing on Canada’s West Coast is alive and well! Karice is proudly producing 100% Canadian-made products every day. (And our recent awards at the largest and most prestigious global competitions speaks to the quality of what’s being made here in the Vancouver area.)

Frankie's Chilliwack

Frankie’s Chilliwack 1024 678 Karice Lighting - Custom Lighting Vancouver

We had a lot of fun working on the feature light for Frankie’s Chilliwack. The brand new Frankie’s Italian Kitchen & Bar in Chilliwack, BC was the brilliance of Monica Jeffers Interior Design. MJID created the concept and provided the beautiful design.

Classic Aesthetic, Modern Functionality

What we love most about it is how much it highlights our diversity and versatility. It has a traditional European look and yet it is functionally hi-tech, with an ultralight aluminum frame and an energy efficient LED lamp. The finish, in particular, is something we are very proud of. This may be our best light feature yet.

Custom Manufacturing to the Core

A lot went into this piece. Nearly every single component was custom crafted. The frame was fabricated out of aluminum. The acrylic diffuser incorporated a custom printed bronze design. The scrollwork brackets were custom fabricated. And the finial protruding from the base was custom CNC machined out of solid billet aluminum.

Beautiful Frankie’s Chilliwack

The final product hangs high above the main dining area. and is approximately 4-feet tall and nearly 5-feet in diameter. It’s beautiful.

Pendant Lighting Styles, Shades, Materials and Colours
Pendant Lighting Styles, Shades, Materials and Colours 150 150 Karice Lighting - Custom Lighting Vancouver

Pendant lighting styles are very unique and diverse in the modern world. They come in many different colours such as black, white, red, blue, orange – the sky is the limit.

Pendant Lighting Styles and Shades – Wide Variety of Materials and Finishes

Pendant lights are incredibly versatile and stylish lighting fixtures that work well with most interior spaces. For one, pendant light shades come in different materials and finishes. At Karice, we stick to things like copper, silver, iron, brass, glass… and avoid things like cotton, polyester, etc as we design and build pendants for commercial and retail spaces as opposed to residential spaces.

Popular Fabric Pendant Shades VS Treated Wood and Metal

Some popular fabric pendant shades can also be made out of linen, burlap, hemp, jute and rattan and paired with wood or metal panels. At Karice we prefer a more polished, professional and sleek look and feel so we may opt to design a shade of wood and metal – and omit the fabric.

Fabric Shades for Residential Dwellings – We Focus on Metals for Businesses and Professional Establishments

Fabric shades are more suited for residential dwellings in the living room or bedroom. Since we are a custom manufacturer and metalwork outfit, our products are more tailored for business owners of restaurants or establishments where an atmosphere for the public needs to be created.

We are mentioning fabric here because we are very passionate about what we do and know that once you hire us for your project you will be glad you didn’t choose fabric! Our award winning designer really knows his stuff.

Pendant Lighting is Soft, Diffused and Striking – We Carefully Design Based on Where Your Lights Will be Installed

Our pendant lighting styles provide soft, diffused lighting without any harsh glare as we carefully take everything into consideration, including where the lighting will be placed.

Glass Pendant Shades for Elegance and to Open a Room Up – Clear, Frosted, Tinted, Etched, Any Style, Any Way

Glass pendant shades can add a touch of elegance and open a room up because they are see through and airy in appearance. Different treatments like frosted, tiffany style and tinted can create a beautiful look. Metal pendant shades also act as statement pieces and can be polished chrome, oil-rubbed bronze, brushed or glossed nickel, black iron finish or anything else that you would like. We do it all and believe nothing is impossible!

Benefits of Ordering Pendant Lighting from a Custom Lighting Manufacturer Rather Than Amazon, Home Depot, IKEA, Costco

Pendant lights of various colours, materials and styles may be found at Amazon, Costco, Home Depot and IKEA, but your choices are limited to what they currently have in stock. One model may have the perfect design but the wrong colour. Another might be in the right colour but in a style that doesn’t match the space where it will be installed.

The bottom line here though is that these stores are awesome for homes and small offices. In restaurants, retail chains, hotels or upscale environments, you need a custom manufacturer to create a look that is perfect and professional for you and your patrons.

Choose a Custom Lighting Manufacturer Over a Retail Store for Quality, Durability, Design and Reliability

With custom lighting manufacturers, pendant lights can be made in the exact colour, style and material that you are looking for. They are also much more high end and “finished”. Hiring a custom manufacturer will save you time and money in the long run because instead of browsing through countless models in retail stores, you have the freedom to create something truly custom that will match your space.

At Karice we build things to last too, so they will last for many years to come. Compared to cheap options, that could be embarrassing, we ensure you that our work has high quality craftsmanship and has been engineered correctly.

Order Modern Pendant Lighting for Your Business – Kitchen, Kitchen Island, Lobby, Entrance or any Room You’d Like to Spice Up

The design flexibility of modern pendant lighting makes it ideal for kitchen, lobby, entrance or any room. Pendant lighting doesn’t take up much room so lights can be suspended just about anywhere. For a chique and minimalist style, you may want to consider pendant lighting in an open room where they can act as a focal point. Pendant lights can be made in many different shapes and sizes too, in order to match your space.

Contact Us Today About Pendant Lighting Styles and See How We Can Create a Stunning Lighting System for You

Pendant lights make for excellent task lighting fixtures when hung over kitchen islands, nooks, crannies or other tight spaces where you need light, but have limited space. Our award winning designer can work with you to create the perfect lighting solution for you. To learn more about Karice Enterprises you can contact us by email or give us a call at 604-542-7137.

Custom Floating LED Chandelier – The Diamond Luxennea
Custom Floating LED Chandelier – The Diamond Luxennea 1024 678 Karice Lighting - Custom Lighting Vancouver

Our custom floating LED chandelier, The Diamond Luxenna was fabricated by Karice Enterprises LTD. We are a custom lighting manufacturer in BC. The Diamond Luxennea chandelier is inspired by geometric shapes and the Florentine Diamond. Photos presented are of our two-tier Diamond Luxennea Light.

Large Scale Custom Chandelier – 9 Sided Geometric Shape

Inspired by geometric shapes, Karice began the process of developing this large scale custom chandelier. A nonagon or enneagon is a closed plane figure made up of nine equal sides.  Like the “Florentine Diamond”, both the Diamond Luxennea and the famous stone have nine sides.

Why We Named this Custom Chandelier “Lux”

Lux is the latin word for light and LUX is also known as a standardized unit of measurement of light intensity. This light fixture’s namesake comes from the words Lux and Enneagon.

Unique Outward and Downward Illumination for Maximum Light

We love the nine sided shape, as this offers much visual interest. Some of our most recent creations have their illumination pointing inward. Although beautiful, this arrangement does not always emit the greatest amount of LUX / light.  With careful consideration given to creating a greater amount of LUX, we decided to have the illumination on this light fixture pointing outwards and downwards.

Inspired by the facets in a diamonds, we had the sides of the Diamond Luxennea pointing down at 45 degrees. This arrangement gives the illusion of a greater amount of faceted sides.

Diamond Luxenna Custom Chandelier Design – Large Scale Light Fixture Manufacturer

The Diamond Luxennea is yet another original chandelier design by Karice Enterprises Ltd. Our vast experience in creating large scale light fixtures and lighting installations was put to use.

The enneagon shapes are seven foot and five foot diameter. We have photographed the Diamond Luxennea on top of a Porsche 911 Carrera so that one is able to grasp the large scale of this lighting creation. The hanging height of each light was meticulously set. A continuous visual line is evident from one light to the other.

Aluminum Extrusion, TIG Welding and Bending Create a Seamless and Precise Floating LED Chandelier

Utilizing design innovations developed by Karice from previous projects, we were able to make the Luxennea Diamond Light Fixture come to life. Karice’s own unique custom aluminum extrusion was once again put to use to make this awe inspiring light fixture. Carefully TIG welded and blended in, we were able to achieve a seamless construction. We have used energy efficient LEDs as the Diamond Luxennea’s primary light source. Suspended by aircraft cables the Diamond Luxennea literally appears to be floating in the air. Our floating LED chandelier is truly a work of art.

All fixture design, product development and manufacturing of the Diamond Luxennea were completed at the Karice facility, by Karice employees. The powder coated finishing was outsourced to local vendors.

Dodeca LED Pendant, lighting design, lighting design Vancouver, Modern lighting, Dodeca
Dodeca Light
Dodeca Light 1024 410 Karice Lighting - Custom Lighting Vancouver

The Dodeca is a simple and elegant design that we are very proud of. It has taken on a life of its own and gained significant notoriety, so we thought it’d be worth making public the story that led to this beautiful creation…

The story begins in March 2014.  The concept originated with Earls Restaurants’ design team, who had hired Matthew Mate Lighting Ltd. (now Matthew McCormick Design Inc.) to collaborate with Karice to create a large, faceted, multi-ring custom light to be hung in the front entrance of Earls Glenarm in Denver, Colorado. 

Dodeca_1st-Shop-Drawing_Sideview

ABOVE: Sideview of original shop drawing.

The original concept brought to Karice involved eleven brass rings ranging from 3-1/2 to 9-feet round, with 24 to 26 facets (so essentially a circle with edges). Although it was a cool concept (really cool, actually!), Karice knew it would be prohibitively expensive to build, so in the initial shop drawings Karice reduced the 24-26 facets down to nine facets per unit. However, in the final shop drawing submission, Matthew McCormick persuaded the team to increase it to twelve facets; hence, the Greek name Dodeca  – meaning, “twelve”. (Due to budget cuts, instead of eleven rings only one 4-foot diameter ring was built, which was installed in Earls Glenarm’s party room, rather than the main entrance.)

Dodeca_1st-Shop-Drawing_Aerialview

ABOVE: First shop drawing. Aerial view of the 9-faceted eleven rings.

In July 2014, Karice began building the first Dodeca. It was crafted using genuine brass sheet – a very difficult material to work with, which presented a whole new set of challenges. Not only is brass nearly impossible to weld, it is also very, very expensive. Knowing this, Karice recommended – and proceeded with – thin gauge brass mounted onto a steel sub-frame.

The manufacturing process of the Dodeca light was very challenging, both the metalwork and lighting required refined craftsmanship. Through extensive testing, Karice was able to develop a method to weld the exterior brass of the Dodeca in such a way as to eliminate visible seams on the exterior of the light fixture. For the light itself, as it illuminates only the inner face of the fixture (pointing inwards), careful consideration was given to the use of LEDs to eliminate hotspots and ensure the light was diffused evenly.

The end result was spectacular. The Dodeca light is a beauty: simple, elegant, and classy. Earls was very happy.

Matthew McCormick liked it, too. So much so that he went to work marketing it. In the Spring of 2015, Karice manufactured two new versions of the Dodeca light for Matthew McCormick Design: three 3-foot diameter lights for Evoke Design (Vancouver, BC) and three 6-foot diameter lights for Deerfoot Mall (Calgary, AB). That summer, we revised the design even further, as McCormick wanted a sleeker, thinner, more refined look. New shop drawings, and new design innovations were crafted by the team at Karice for the six new custom lights that were shipped to the new Cactus Club Cafe in Toronto and a single Dodeca fixture for the new Kit and Ace store on 4th Ave in Kitsilano, Vancouver.  A final version was made for Matthew McCormick in October 2015, for the LAMP (“Lighting Architecture Movement Project”) International Lighting Design Competition in Vancouver, BC.

Although the concept began with the Earls design team, the end product had little similarity to the initial idea. Karice’s development of the Dodeca went so far beyond the scope of this project that Karice actually created an entire series of original lights using the intellectual property they created.

All fixture design, product development, and manufacturing of the Dodeca light were completed by Karice Enterprises at the Karice facility in Surrey, BC.  Powder coating and other finishing methods were outsourced by Karice to local vendors.

Benefits of Chandelier Lighting – Modern, Rustic & Quality Comparison
Benefits of Chandelier Lighting – Modern, Rustic & Quality Comparison 150 150 Karice Lighting - Custom Lighting Vancouver

There are many benefits of chandelier lighting. Not only do they create ambient lighting, but they’re also decorative pieces. Chandeliers can add a fancy touch, bring on the wow factor, create a focal point or set the tone in a space. Another bonus is that they won’t crowd your restaurant, shop or showroom as they are hung from the ceiling.

Benefits of Modern vs Rustic Chandelier Lighting – Explore the Various Types of Chandelier Lighting

Aesthetics-wise, limitless style possibilities are a big plus when it comes to custom lights, and chandeliers are no exception. Whether you’re in the market for upscale or more affordable / “cheap chandelier lighting, there are tons of options ranging from modern to rustic.

With modern chandelier lighting, think sleek and striking masterpieces – hanging works of art that usually combine metal and glass and feature clean lines and geometric forms. If you’re going for a lodge or cabin feel, rustic chandelier lighting can make that statement for you using materials like stained wood and metal. For added depth and an added country feel, finishes with a relaxed and rugged quality to them are great options.

Reasons to Buy Chandelier Lighting for Sale From a Custom Lighting Manufacturer Instead of Vendors Such as Costco and IKEA

Shopping at retail vendors like Costco and IKEA may be intriguing, especially if there is a sale, but those types of establishments are really best served for home and small office lighting. For a restaurant, retail space, showroom or shop you will need industrial grade design, materials, construction and installation to ensure the safety of your clients and customers. Choosing a skilled manufacturer like Karice will ensure that your chandelier lighting is durable and well maintained for many years to come. Karice also manufactures all parts needed for each job, right in house which adds to the durability. Manufacturing all parts in house also means turnaround times are much faster as parts do not need to be ordered. The dedicated, experienced team at Karice is a far superior choice for your establishment compared to cheap chandelier lighting design, production and DIY installation that is typically offered in retail chains. Another benefit of choosing a custom lighting and metal work manufacturer like Karice is that you can choose some materials and assist with the design process to create a chandelier that will be perfect for your space.

Halo Light – Circline Bulb Contemporary Light Design
Halo Light – Circline Bulb Contemporary Light Design 1024 410 Karice Lighting - Custom Lighting Vancouver

The Halo light is a complicated piece that brings a circline bulb from the 1950s back to life with a modern and contemporary lighting design.

Our industrial design and product development for the Halo light was some of our most exhaustive to date. We were given a circline bulb and an undeveloped idea: to build a custom light feature that looked like champagne bubbles. It proved to be a formidable challenge!

It all started in September 2014. Karice sat down with the client – Matthew McCormick Studios – and drew up some concepts of how to bring his idea to life. Before we did the industrial design, we first wanted to ensure that what we were envisioning accurately matched what he was looking for. Once our pencil drawings were approved (by the end of the meeting!), we went to work.

Karice began its development process using Auto CAD drafting to design a custom box to hold the circline bulb. Not only did it have to fit the electronic ballast, but Karice wanted to create one product for all three different sizes of circline bulbs. Our first attempt was with steel. Using our OMAX waterjet machining centre, we cut the components needed to create the box, and several prototype models were developed. After many trials, we finally came up with a CNC machined two piece aluminum box.

The final finishing details still had to be worked out. McCormick wanted a brass look, but brass is very expensive. To reduce costs, Karice recommended aluminum with gold anodizing. Careful attention was given to apply a fine brushed finish on all exterior surfaces of the box. The box edges were then chamfered to give an elegant fine look.

After creating the single Halo pendant, Karice’s next task was to create a chandelier fixture that mimicked the bubbles in champagne. To achieve this, Karice designed and developed a large 30-inch circular metal canopy that allowed ten Halo pendants to hang simultaneously. Using various sizes of circline bulbs at varying heights, Karice created the final Halo fixture that showcased in the Bottega VIP Lounge at IDS West 2014.

All fixture and industrial design, product and component development, manufacturing, and certification of the non-dimmable Halo light were completed by Karice at its facility in Surrey (near Vancouver, BC, Canada). Powder coating and anodizing were outsourced by Karice to local vendors.

Luxennea – Linked LED Chandelier, Custom Lighting
Luxennea – Linked LED Chandelier, Custom Lighting 1024 394 Karice Lighting - Custom Lighting Vancouver

Introducing Luxennea – a new lighting series from Karice using LED lighting technology. Energy efficient and elegant, the permanently “linked” Luxennea is suspended by aircraft cables to give the illusion that it is floating in the air.

Inspired by geometric shapes, the Linked Luxennea is the first in this original series, which is the culmination of Karice’s intellectual property on previous projects. The sophistication and craftsmanship of the Luxennea collection is a true reflection of 23 years in the industry.

It’s also big! The large chandelier combines two 5-foot diameter enneagon rings. As viewed in this blog post, the two-ringed Linked Luxennea is 8-feet 6-inches long. (For context, we have photographed the Linked Luxennea above our Novem table, another original piece by Karice.)

The numerous custom components needed to create the Linked Luxennea were designed and manufactured in-house here at Karice. An aluminum extrusion was developed. Special hangers were created to enable handling of the two geometric shapes simultaneously (this was especially needed during the powder coating process), and a unique in-house technology was developed to power the light without wiring.

As shown, the Linked Luxennea is just two rings, but it can be configured with as many links and shapes as desired, suspended in a variety of configurations. The tilted angle can easily be adjusted, and the lights can also be suspended further apart. So from this preset, an infinite number of creative possibilities can be achieved.  The combinations are unlimited.

All fixture design, product development, and manufacturing of the Linked Luxennea were completed by Karice at its facility in Surrey (just outside Vancouver, BC, Canada).  The powder coated finishing was outsourced to local vendors.

DAWN Light Fixture – Custom Brass Chandelier – Design Collaboration
DAWN Light Fixture – Custom Brass Chandelier – Design Collaboration 1024 768 Karice Lighting - Custom Lighting Vancouver

Every new light we build is a challenge. The Dawn custom brass light is no exception. The real work in creating any light is how the light works, how it is put together.  As Steve Jobs so succinctly put, “Design is not just what it looks like and feels like.  Design is how it works”   Such is the case with the DAWN light fixture.   Many complex design details were done by the team at Karice to make the Dawn light fixture work.  The Dawn light fixture was a collaboration between Karice and Matthew McCormick Design.  The vision, or concept was Matthew’s, but the design is by Karice.  Without AutoCAD, without years of manufacturing know how, without the expertise of the team at Karice, the Dawn light fixture would cease to exist.  Similarly, one can have an idea for a novel, this does not make him a novelist.  It is the actual author who is the designer, creator and novelist.  Karice is the author of the Dawn light fixture.  Any subsequent lights are a reverse engineering process of the original model created in December 2014.

Custom Design, DAWN Light Fixture –  The Beauty of Genuine Brass Fabrication

There is nothing that can be compared to the use of genuine brass.  Brass plating and anodized aluminum are attempts to recreate brass, but there is nothing like the REAL thing.  The feel, the look is incomparable. The rich luster of genuine brass is an organic array of hues.

Custom Manufacturing and Challenges in Design

A lot went into this piece. Every single component of this chandelier had to be designed by team Karice from the ground up. The Y-connectors and T-connectors were first drafted in AutoCAD.  Preliminary prototypes were built in aluminum.  Once the final parts were approved, Karice went to work to make the parts using genuine brass.

Beautiful Brass Custom Light called DAWN

In August 2014, lighting designer Matthew McCormick approached Karice with the concept.  A Photoshop image was presented to us as seen below, with some rough approximate dimensions.  Karice designed and developed  the components from the ground up.  We started by drafting a 2D profile on AutoCad. Once the final scale was approved, we brought the part to our CNC machining center to make it into a usable threaded connector.

Once all of the brass components were completed, then the real fun began.  How do we make a light look like the photo?   This was literally an experiment in itself, since we had no formal drawings and no dimensions to work with.  We were only given a Photoshop image and a guide line of how big the light should be.  What length should the tubes be? We had no idea.   The light was literally a scratch build, completed in December 2014, while Matthew honeymooned in Bali.

The work that went into this beautiful creation was beyond the call of duty.  Lead designer and maker, Maurice poured his heart and soul into creating the masterpiece.  Every detail was not left to chance.  Maurice even chose to have Matthew’s logo machined into the covers of the connectors.  Such a subtle touch, but only adding to the beauty of the light.

The end result was breathtaking.  A fellow acquaintance, businessman and mill worker commented that he had not seen such a beautiful finish on a light.  He had seen other competitors lights, and mentioned that their finishing did not measure up to what he saw on our shop floor.

Karice has only ever made one Dawn light fixture.  It now resides at a residential home in Calgary, Alberta.

Geometric Light Earls Assembly Row
Geometric Light – Earls Assembly Row
Geometric Light – Earls Assembly Row 1024 678 Karice Lighting - Custom Lighting Vancouver

As a custom lighting manufacturer we get the opportunity to work on a wide variety of different lighting projects. A great example of this is the light installation at the Earls Kitchen + Bar on Assembly Row in Boston, called the Geometric. We were asked to manufacture this piece for Matthew Mate Lighting (now Matthew McCormick Studios), who was commissioned by Earls to design a lighting feature for their space.

It all began in December 2013, when the initial sketch by the Earls Design team was brought to Karice by Matthew and Mate. As we refined and developed it, Mate came up with the idea to have the lights tilt at different angles. Brilliant! After a final design was selected, Karice began working on bringing the concept to reality. Shop drawings by Karice were approved by Earls, and Karice went to work.

Frames had to be formed, welded, and cleaned to be ready for powder coating. After welding, the corners had to be ground smooth.

After final assembly and testing, the lights were carefully packaged, crated, and shipped to their final destination at Earls Assembly Row in Boston, Massachusetts.

But it didn’t stop there! The concept for the Geometric custom light fixture was further refined by Karice for a future Earls project: the Shattered light installed at Earls Tyson’s Corner in Virginia.

What we enjoy about the custom lighting industry is the challenge! Every light we manufacture is unique and different, which can present many challenges along the way, from concept to the final product. A lot of time is spent designing and developing the light fixture. In some cases, components that don’t even exist need to be designed, prototyped, tested, and produced. What Karice brings to the table is its ability to take the concept to the final product. We do all of the designing, development, and manufacturing in-house. We are able to oversee every aspect of the project to ensure a quality, stunning piece at the end of the day.

Benefits of Buying Quality, Genuine Crystal Chandeliers from a Custom Lighting Manufacturer

Lighting Components
Lighting Components 400 266 Karice Lighting - Custom Lighting Vancouver

Karice Enterprises Ltd. a leading manufacture of lighting fixtures was commissioned to build a custom light fixture. Certain lighting components needed can’t always be found in the marketplace, so we decided to make our own. Featured here is our most recent creation, a custom light fixture, utilizing a custom brass swivel designed and manufactured by the team here at Karice Enterprises. This swivel is not only elegant, but offers a large range of motion, and was made with an internal locking mechanism to lock it into position.

Earls Dadeland Custom Chandelier
Earls Dadeland Custom Chandelier 361 300 Karice Lighting - Custom Lighting Vancouver

Karice was contracted by Earls to make this huge custom chandelier for their new location in Miami, Florida, U.S.A. Jenn Hoffbeck of the Earls design team came to Karice with the design concept intended for the new location in Miami. The light is huge at 24 feet x 12 feet in size. It is constructed with an aluminum canopy system that Karice has designed to suspended multiple lighting configurations for commercial spaces such as the installation in Miami. In all, twelve modular canopies were designed and crafted for the restaurant. The canopies were finished in a white color, so as to blend in with the white ceiling. Aluminum tubing was used in the project to suspend 156 pendants. The pendants had custom domed caps attached to the socket covers. Candelabra sockets were used for this project and G16.5, 15 watt bulbs lit up the space over the dining area of the restaurant.  The aluminum wire chases and pendant lights were finished in a matte black powder coat.

Using large scaled aluminum tubing, wire chases were created to suspend the multiple lights. 156 individual pendants were suspended on three different levels, cascading down to create an installation height of almost 10 feet. The wiring of the light was a a challenge. In the end a system was engineered to wire 39 lights into 3 ceiling canopies.

Shipping this huge light from Vancouver to Miami was an enormous hurdle. Custom crates containing tiered steps had to be designed by team Karice to ensure a safe journey to travel across the North American continent. Once the product arrived in Miami, and special night time delivery had to be arranged to off load the three large shipping crates using a crane. Project manager Kirsten Bray, was relieved to have the installation completed.

Thanks to the Earls Design Team for their ever innovative ideas and concepts.

Custom Chandelier Aritzia
Custom Lighting for Aritzia
Custom Lighting for Aritzia 960 395 Karice Lighting - Custom Lighting Vancouver

New Replica Custom lighting design –  Vintage lights are recreated with a revised design for the Artizia fashion boutiques across North America.

Aritzia approached us to replicate a light fixture they had brought over from Europe. Not only did they want us to reproduce it,  they also wanted us to add an additional tier to the light.   The original light consisted of two lighting layers,  the new light required 3 lighting layers.   This affected the overall design of the light.  The new light was much taller and wider in shape.

Conceptual designs were first drafted in AutoCAD.  Once approved, Karice went to work to craft the new light.  The new light had fifteen candelabra bulbs. Special custom candle holders were created for the chandeliers.  Each candle holder had a custom machined finial that was attached to the underside of the candle cup.  The lights were finished in a matte black finish.  Once wired up, the lights were UL Certified for the destined homes in various locations in the US chain for this classy clothing store.

Challenges along the way included sourcing the material for this project.  It required 3/8″ square tubing.  This size tubing was not available in Canada.  Luckily, we are close to border, and the correct tubing was sourced from a supplier in Seattle, WA.

Another challenge in the project was the glass.  Our glass blower had custom moulds made to achieve the bulbous shapes.  This ensured that all lights were made with identical glass for the fourteen lights that were crafted and shipped across Artizia’s North American chain.    Glass medallions were also made for this project.  Using our CNC milling machine, unique “STAMP” shapes were created so that an impression could be stamped into the hot molten glass.  Aritzia was very happy with the finished custom chandelier, which can be seen in many of their retail stores across North America.
