Dodeca Lights for Cactus Club
Located in Toronto’s downtown core at First Canadian Place, the Cactus Club Eastern Flagship location boasts re-imagined menu items and elevated design.

In collaboration with a Vancouver based Lighting Designer, Karice Lighting was commissioned to design, develop, and craft six brand new custom Dodeca lighting fixtures for the Cactus Club Cafe in Toronto, Canada

The size of the fixtures built for the Dodeca lights used at this location was significant.  The size was larger than any fixture built before. The lights had a diameter of 6’6″, and required two LED drivers to power them up.

The designers at Cactus Club had very specific color requirements for their restaurant.  Sample chips were presented to the Cactus Club team, and in the end they selected a unique custom color.  A custom charcoal silver color powder coat was selected as the finish on these lights.

To read about the first ever designed and built Dodeca light fixture, be sure to visit our blog article on DODECA.

The Cactus Club vision of modern Canadian cuisine features a mix of signature dishes and new highlights created by their Test Kitchen, led by world-class chefs including Chef Rob Feenie and Chef Cory Vitiello.

LOBBY LIGHTING INSTALLATION – HOLLYBURN PROPERTIES –  LIGHT FORM

Lobby Lighting Installation.  The incredibly talented team at SSDG working with Lightform commissioned Karice to collaborate on their lighting design for the new lobby for Hollyburn Properties in Vancouver. Brass finish lights were designed and created for this beautiful location.  Random lighting concepts were created and drafted in Fusion 360. Our client Lightform was thrilled with the 3D images we were able to present to them.  SSDG made a few minor tweaks to the design and we were able to commence fabrication.

The lobby looks stunning, one can’t help but notice the beautiful display of luminaires. The lighting display is impressive to say the least.

The lighting installation consists of eight chandeliers that are installed onto the ceiling j-boxes.  Each light is mounted with three j-box canopy mounting plates. The bulb chosen for the installation  greatly impacted the final appeal and look of these lights.  The bulbs selected are by  TALA

designer: Tala

code: Porcelain II 6W LED Bulb

Individually sandblasted, smooth dimmable LED filament lamp made of mouth-blown glass. This lamp uses 6 Watts of power and achieves 540 Lumens at a CRI of 95. It has an IP54 rating LED bulbs were selected by the team at Lightform.  And what a great choice they are.  Perfect for the light and room setting.

TALA BULBS

Specializing in low-energy LED lighting solutions that recall the warm glow of traditional luminaires, Tala’s lighting solutions are both visually appealing and sustainable.

The British lighting brand’s “conservation through beauty” mission is enacted in every design – from its Classic collection, inspired by the retro aesthetic of Edison bulbs, through to its Voronoi collection, inspired by patterns found in nature.

Creating bulbs that use 90 percent less energy and last 10 to 15 times longer than incandescent bulbs, Tala proves that every aspect of contemporary lighting should be designed with quality and longevity in mind. Designers love Tala’s new sets: canopies that allow you to create linear or cluster installations with the brand’s most beloved designs. 

Enjoy your visit to the new lobby of Hollyburn Properties located at 1650 Alberni Street, in Vancouver British Columbia.

Dodeca Light Fixtures Deerfoot Mall in Calgary

Deerfoot Mall Dodeca lights –  an exciting project for Shape Properties.  In collaboration with a Vancouver based Lighting Designer, Karice Lighting was commissioned to design, develop, and craft three brand new custom Dodeca lighting fixtures for the Deerfoot Mall in Calgary, Alberta.  The lights are a variation on the original DODECA light fixture made for the Earls Denver Glenarm project in 2014.

Karice was presented with a concept, and a size.  Our design work details how the light was built, and what had to be done to make the project happen. Illumination calculations, lens calculations, internal structure calculations were all drafted in Auto CAD.   Hanging details had to be figured out. What was the ceiling construction.  Details provided by the onsite electrician, enabled us to design engineer the hanging details required to hang these fixtures.

The first three images in our post show the Dodeca lights in all their glory suspended in the Deerfoot Mall in Calgary, Alberta.

The remaining images are in process photos of the Dodeca lights in production at the Karice facility.  A close up view demonstrates the meticulous attention to detail that is given in the Karice production process.  Joints are almost invisible.  Quality is key at Karice.  No product leaves our doors without careful inspection, insuring that our quality standards are met.

Once the lights return from the powder coater, LEDs are installed around the inner perimeter of the light, pointing inwards.  Afterwards, an acrylic lens is inserted around the inner perimeter to diffuse the LEDs eliminating the possibility of hot spots.

Hanging details are worked out ahead of time.  This will enable a seamless installation on site.

Carefully crated up, finished product is well protected prior to leaving on its long journey to our neighboring province of Alberta.

BRASS LIGHTS BLUBIRD

The incredibly talented team at Box Interior Designs commissioned Karice to collaborate on their lighting design for the new Blubird Clothing store on Alberni Street in Vancouver. Brass lights were designed and created for this beautiful store. A beautiful bird cage concept was presented by the Box Team, and we were thrilled to be a part of that vision. Additionally, three custom brass pendants are suspended over the custom curved brass mirror frame.

The store looks amazing.  Box had created a sure winner in their vision for this retail outlet.

The main feature piece in the store is Brass Lights. The designers at box envisioned a Brass Birdcage Chandelier. The birdcage is made with genuine brass round bars, and is suspended from a single canopy that will support the weight of the chandelier. Hand blown glass was chosen to diffuse the LED bulbs that illuminate each of the nine pendants. Originally two of the pendants hung below the brass cage. This gave the artistic piece and original look and random appeal. 

Enjoy your visit to the new Bluebird on Alberni Street, and feast your eyes on the sought-after international collections that curate an exclusive assortment of luxury clothing, accessories and beauty products. The new store is located at 1108 Alberni Street, in Vancouver British Columbia.

Dramatic Custom Lighting for a Florida Home
Dramatic Custom Lighting for a Florida Home 683 1024 Karice Lighting - Custom Lighting Vancouver

Dramatic custom lighting, designed by Karice, for this magnificent home in Florida.

Our client contacted us to build a custom lighting fixture for his home in Florida U.S.A.  Presented with a sketch of his vision, photos and drawings of the room, we went to work to design a light that would be perfect for his house.  The first thing we changed was the size of the light.  The room was very spacious, and would easily accommodate a larger version of the original design sketch.  Armed with elevation and plan drawings, our proposed lighting design was drafted in AutoCad to present our ideas for the project.  Inspired by our signature Diamond Luxennea Chandelier, we took design direction from the sloped angles of the light.  The lighting design is a four-tiered, square shaped chandelier.  Using Karice’s proprietary 3 inch aluminum extrusion, the LED lights are pointing down at a 45-degree angle.  Not only does this maximize illumination, visual interest is created using the angled construction.  Our client was very happy to proceed with the project once our drawings were finalized.

Four large tiered shapes were made.  The four tiers are not small at all, 5ft x 5ft, 4ft x 4ft, 3ft x 3ft and 2ft x 2ft are the sizes of the lights.  Suspending the light using aircraft cables gives the illusion that the light is floating in the air.

Have a look at the photos, I’m sure you will agree that this room is spectacularly dramatic.

Custom Lights Earls Denver

Karice manufactured and design engineered a wide variety of lights for Earls Glenarm location in Denver, CO: an original brass & steel swivel light, an inverted pendant concept for the main dining area, and the Original and first ever built DODECA light fixture.

For the custom lights Earls Denver, the project began as a design collaboration between Earls design, Karice and Matthew Mate Lighting (now Matthew McCormick Design.) In order to bring the client’s brass and steel lighting concept to life, we had to create an original swivel – made of brass (one of the hardest materials to work with). This was a fun challenge, that we believe turned out great (and so does the client!).

For the inverted pendant lights in the dining room, Karice had to design and develop a custom lamp holder to install two T8 incandescent show case bulbs vertically. A quantity of ten, five lamp pendants were made for this location. The bulbs were suspended a three different elevations.

Our biggest challenge on this project was to design and create the first, ever built Dodeca. The story of this light begins in the spring of 2014. More details about this light fixture can be read in our project “DODECA” or blog on DODECA.  The concept originally began with the Earls Design Team, who collaborated with Karice and Matthew. The difficulty with this light was crafting it using genuine brass. The end result was stunning and spectacular.

The custom lights Earls Denver were a huge success.  We were thrilled with the end result.
