Concept Statement: This is a new series of LED chandeliers with explosive forms made from and inspired by destroyed buildings. The concept sits at the intersection of creation and destruction, forging a balance of energy and history in the form of function and design. At the center of the fixture is a singularity of cast-brass joints, elegantly curved to dramatically reflect the geometry of the fixture. Linear wooden bulbs – made from redwood reclaimed from demolished NYC water towers – in varying lengths cantilever from the brass core, each one emitting a line of even light in a different direction. The result is an explosion of richly textured wood that casts dynamic patterns of light and shadow.
Project Specs: Boom is an LED fixture made from sustainably sourced or reclaimed wood and a cast brass joint. Wood types available: Maple, American Walnut, Ebonized Oak, reclaimed Heart Pine, reclaimed Water Tower Redwood, and Custom. Metal available: Polished Brass and Custom. Product dimensions for the four sizes include: Little Boom (31.9” x 38.5” x 34”), Middle Boom (41.7” x 50.51” x 44.6"), Big Boom (60.9” x 74.2” x 65”) and Double Boom (98” x 86.3” x 50.4”).
