My recent trip to Kansas City included a field visit to the Artery Residence where I spent extensive time fine tuning the two custom chandeliers located in the kitchen and dining room. Together, the two chandeliers are composed of some 300 individual pendants, each of which has six LED sources contained within miniature brass housings. My simple snapshots attempt to capture the elegant transparency of each luminaire and the void that is created between chandelier mass and the corresponding furniture below. This compressed “void” was conceived as a space for social exchange between family and friends as they gather around the kitchen island and the dining table. Look for final images as the project comes to a close over the coming weeks.
