The homeowner was inspired by a light chandelier they experienced while dining at Maple + Ash, a new popular restaurant in Chicago. The goal was to have a similar chandelier, of two lit strands, over their main dining tables - in time for a home tour gala in the Lincoln Park neighborhood.
The project had a fair amount of challenges from the start, from lack of initial information, clarity on design intent, and budgeting mishaps/constraints. Overall, this project was a success but had a steep learning curve which was a challenge I was up for. I collected the information and project outcomes to create an educational presentation for both the LightArt sales team and for the other project managers.
The result was a happy homeowner, a beautiful and unique light fixture, and new skills learned as well as exercised existing ones. This fixture came to be one of my favorites I created, with a futuristic and geometric feel, balanced by the soft and dimmable glow it provides.
