Special Built Items
Special built items, like Phyllo 2814 pendants are up to 44” in diameter.
Fire Farm Phyllo 2814: The buttery layers of the Phyllo 2814 pendants give a warm, inviting glow great for intimate spaces, with a fiery intensity just right for larger environments. These three shades have approximate diameters of 44″, 36″, and 24″, and are constructed with a layered Brass, Bronze or Stainless Steel mesh.
Fire Farm Diplomat 2059: This column curtain is a wonderful extrapolation of our signature metal mesh shade material into a one-of-a-kind sculptural lighting solution. The designer was faced with a very dominant structural column in the middle of the lobby of this well-known DC hotel near the Capitol building. After visiting our online gallery, they envisioned using our stainless steel mesh to wrap the column in a transparent curtain glowing with floating fireflies of light from within. The client was able to provide a remarkable photo-realistic rendering of the proposed construction in its environment.
Fire Farm Orion 1513: The Orion style wave form is a visually stunning material upon which light dances and varies in color and dimension as you move around it. The fixtures are a Fire Farm invention of alternating layers of metal wire cloth and a proprietary light-manipulating dichroic diffusing film. This combination of materials captures the light, breaks it into its rainbow of colors and bounces it amongst the folds in the crumpled metal mesh.
These are reminiscent of the designs featured in Sharon McFarlane’s book Bright Ideas professional lighting solutions for your home.
Spotlight on Georgia Scott Designs
Nature often serves as the inspiration when it comes to freestanding integrally lit sculptures
London-based lighting designer Georgia Scott draw on natural forms such as plants, seed pods, icicles and the skeletons of trees. More often than not, these pieces are handmade, as opposed to mass-manufactured, to keep them more sculptural.
In many instances, the objects are woven into their nature-inspired shapes using materials such as aluminum and copper mesh.
Such materials offer malleability essential for creating intricate forms and also present Scott with an opportunity, in her words to “play with light, and achieve different qualities of light through the materials.”
