Wichita Art Museum Custom Bollard

The primary pedestrian walk through the new outdoor Art Garden at the Wichita Art Museum will be graced with a new custom bollard that I designed.  Five individual LED luminaires are located asymmetrically in the wood body.  Each luminaire has a unique mounting angle and optical assembly that collectively illuminate the linear path adjacent to the bollard.  With interest of enhancing a personal garden experience, the modest form, unique aperture pattern and wood material of the new bollard offer a refreshing departure from conventional luminaires that have a more technical aesthetic.  The attached images are of the first full assembly viewed at the manufacturer along with the initial concept sketch.  Site installation will be complete in September.  Landscape Architect: Confluence, Manufacturer, DuraComm Lighting and Structura.
