Kit and Ace lighting

This fixture was designed and built by me for the new Kit and Ace store at 208 Newbury St. in Boston. They wanted a unique lighting design that incorporated several of their brand elements: white washed ash, copper, and the color blue. The initial inspiration for my design came from mobiles. I knew that the fixture would be hanging and that this would be a good opportunity to build something sculptural that explored physical and visual balance. This was also my first attempt at steam bending, a traditional and exciting technique for shaping wood.
