PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

The Electron Wall Sconce – Lighting Design at it’s best.  Karice has been designing and creating light fixtures since 2000.  In 2015, we decided to design our own unique line of lighting products.  Thus began the journey to design and create the lighting fixture known as ELECTRON.

The LED technology available to a lighting designer enables us to create new innovative designs in lighting.  We could not achieve these designs without the resources available to us today.  It has been an exciting exercise to design and create new lighting fixtures such as the Electron.

Reflecting the image and nature of its namesake, the Electron wall sconce luminaire represents the circular path of an electron around the nucleus of an atom.  The aesthetic is minimalistic, while masking a highly innovative creation below the surface.  Made with aluminum and acrylic, the Electron’s irreducibly complex engineering hides all fasteners and wiring, and maintains the ring’s suspended independence without compromising beauty or functionality.  Using dimmable energy-efficient LED technology, it illuminates from its inner and outer edges without shadowing.  A custom user-friendly adapter plate mounts the fixture to ensure easy, efficient, headache-free installation.

Preliminary designs and prototypes began in October 2015, with the final prototype completed in December 2015.  The design of the electron was enhanced by the tools of our trade.  Using AutoCAD, we were able to draft up the design for the Electron.  Once CAD designs were completed, we went to work with the manufacturing process.  Our waterjet machining center, CNC milling machine and CNC lathe were all employed to enable us to create the light fixture.  A test assembly was made before the parts were sent out for finishing.  The aluminum components were anodized to give a beautiful rich looking finish.  We were pleased with our finished product.
