TOL OLO Pendant
Taste of Life Magazine – Heart Song September 2019
The artisans at Karice pride themselves on being able to turn the most imaginative and far-fetched ideas into tangible works of art.
One customer wanted a huge lighting fixture with industrial appeal. Karice created an 11-by-45-foot chandelier including faux piping and elegant, yet cage-like metal light coverings.
Karice’s artisans have made glowing rings that appear to float in thin air, illuminating 360 degrees. They’ve crafted an artistic replica of a famous ancient tree in Vancouver’s Stanley Park, using ingenuity to make aluminum do things they weren’t sure were possible.
We love the OVAL shape, and chose to make a light using the oval shape. Hence, OLO arrived. We employed the use of acrylic for the diffuser to eliminate the seismic concern one has when using glass.
OLO was designed in house by lead designer and maker Maurice L. Dery. The light uses LED technology to promote energy efficiency.
The OLO light is almost identical to the Mini Fuse pendant. The lighting parts that make up the light are interchangeable.
