Villa – a Lighted Center Piece

Center peices are commonplace. Lighted centerpieces not illuminated by candles are not. The reason is fairly simple – no power available.

I created an architecturally inspired Lighted Art Object as a center peice for a dining or conference table.

The base includes a 10Ah lithium battery pack that is rechargeable through a detachable charger. It testing the finished piece, it lasted 60 hours at a medium low setting (35% brightness), and 13 hours at the highest brightness setting. With (4) OLED sources, both ambient and more functional task lighting are both possible.

Villa

The concept is derived from the low, extended rooflines of Wright architecture, as well as a little from Meese Van der Roe.

Total height was kept below 11.5″ to avoid people sitting across the table being obstructed from seeing one another. It’s general scale will work for a table from 30″ to 36″ wide.

Inspiration from an iconic work.

You can see more on this object, including scale reference and 360 degree view on the Lumenique web site under ArchForms Villa

If this is something you would like to add to your dining table, conference table or reception desk, there is a link for purchasing it there. Perhaps you have someone in mind that might like it? Please refer them.

This will also be shown at the Chicago Artisan Market on October 17.
