Better a little late than never for Week Nine Business had me running elsewhere, so there was little shop time to be had, but its done now at last. This is a monster compared to most of the others. First, its heavy, as the thinnest metal used in the thing is 1/4″ wall solid aluminum. The glass is even 3/16″ thick, clear on one side and frosted on the back. It has a very architectural look and feel, and mass to it. Would look great in a corporate lobby or as a hotel desk accent.

The light source is a Philips Fortimo remote phosphor light module rated at 1100 lumens. The structure is 35″ tall and is 8″ square at the base. Gray wrinkle powder and a special textured finish on the aluminum vertical bars adds some sparkle, while the white reflective rings provide diffusion.

One of the issues I faced on this one is the massive scale of the light module and its related power supply. There is just no way to put these into a small product.This was obviously not the design intent for this light source, but it does produce a nice color at 3000K and 80CRI.

Now on to something a bit more sexy for Week Ten, perhaps something in Ferrari Red.. Oh yeah, bought a neat little camera for making  You Tube movies, so will make an attempt to capture some action to be included on future design projects.

As always more on this can be found at Lumenique Week Nine
