Be Original Americas
Be Original Americas 282 179 Karice Lighting - Custom Lighting Vancouver

There are many benefits of original designs. When it comes to lighting and metal work, Karice is committed 100% to creating original one of a kind designs.

Be Original Americas – What is it all about?

Since its founding in 2012, Be Original Americas has established itself as a leading proponent for original design. The nonprofit seeks to inform consumers, designers, and manufacturers on the value of ingenuity and authenticity.

Be Original Americas is a 501(c)6 non-profit committed to informing, educating and influencing manufacturers, design professionals and individuals on the economic, ethical, and environmental value of authentic design while preserving and investing in its future.

The value of authenticity cannot be underestimated or taken for granted in the marketplace. Through an extensive program of lectures, workshops and round tables, the campaign goal is to establish a set of industry standards that encourages consumers, the architecture/design community, producers, dealers and media partners to fully support creativity and authenticity in order to invest in the future of design, incentivize innovation and give back to the industry and the people it serves.

Be Original is committed to initiating a discussion on the importance of preserving original design through informational and educational initiative in various design contexts. A manifesto of nine basic beliefs serves as the guiding tenet of the initiative.

Nine points to Consider – This is What it Means to be a Member of “Be Original Americas.”

  • IN THE DESIGNER
    AND CREATORS

The designs and ideas of the designer are the property of the designer and the company they have partnered with in creating and manufacturing the work.

  • IN THE CUSTOMER

The customer will choose the originals when knowing and understanding the background of the designer, the quality, the manufacturing and the creative and commercial investment it takes to create something original.

  • THAT INVESTING IN
    ORIGINAL DESIGN IS
    GOOD BUSINESS

Investing in original design pays off. It keeps its value, is more durable and ages with beauty.

  • IN PROTECTING THE
    DESIGNER AND COMPANY

Young designers and ambitious design brands deserve design protection in order to keep designing new products and investing in bringing the design to the market.

  • IN CREATIVITY

It takes creativity to create something original and that inspiration from others and historic traditions is part of the inspiration to be creative and creating something new. We believe in creating NOT imitating.

  • THAT GOOD DESIGN
    MAKES A DIFFERENCE

Good design makes a difference in the world and in the way we live and work as it surrounds us in our public and private lives. Good design improves quality of life and therefore, needs to be encouraged.

  • IN THE FUTURE
    OF DESIGN

Design gives back to the industry as a whole and to the people it serves. By purchasing authentic design you are investing in the future of design.

  • IN AUTHENTICITY

The authentic way is the right way – for the customers, the designers, the public and the company that develops new authentic design through research, creativity, investments and skills.

  • IN TRUE PARTNERS

True partners also believe in this manifesto and all of the items above.

Portal Light A Design Collaboration

Collaborations vary enormously depending on their goals, settings, teams and resources. Yet all collaborations are a human activity, and the following six elements play an important role in all of them.

  1. Motivation
  2. Communication
  3. Diversity
  4. Sharing
  5. Support
  6. Problem Solving

 

When Karice was approached by Mark Kinsley of Lake + Wells, we were thrilled and excited to begin work on the Portal Lighting project.  Their request was for Karice to get help with the design engineering and prototyping of the new lighting concept.  The motivation for the project was the We Love Lamp that was a set for September 2018, as Portal was selected as a finalist in the 2018 competition.

Portal Lighting Concept for We Love Lamp 2018

Communication

Today’s technology with email and digital drawings,  the information about the Portal project was very clear.  The question was, how to bring the lighting concept to life.  This is where Karice, veteran lighting and product designer began the process of bring the Portal light project to life.

Design Process

Once presented with the design concept, the team at Karice went to working envisioning how the light could be built.  Numerous methods were analyzed, and much though went into designing the most cost efficient way to produce the light.  Brass with it’s popular appeal was the first choice of metal substrate for the project.  However, due to the expense of this material, and difficulty to process, it was decided to proceed with an aluminum substrate.  A solid billet aluminum T6061 material was selected for the Project.

The first process was to cut the profile to shape using our Omax 80160 water jet machining center.  Further processing involved the use of a CNC milling machining to refine the finishing details.  An anodized light gold finish was selected to mimic brass.  The Center panel of the light is genuine mirror polished brass for the reflectivity of a mirror.

Illumination Technology

Perfect for creating illumination even in the most diverse designs, LED technology was the only choice for this project.    The light gives  an indirect glow.  To avoid the appearance of bright hot spots, a frosted acrylic diffuser was selected  to hide the LEDs from view.

Lighting is a major component of any functional office space. A properly lit work environment offers up a host of benefits, from reducing eye strain and improving employee wellbeing to boosting productivity and lowering energy consumption. But with so many options to choose from, finding the best lighting solution for your office can be tricky. To help cut through the confusion, our Canadian lighting manufacturers have put together some handy tips on how to bring the best lighting into your workplace.

Ambient lighting

Ambient lighting is key for adding warmth and style to your office. Whether you have lamps, installed fixtures, or recessed lighting, you’ll want to make sure the light is just the right amount. Too much or too little light will not only cause headaches but also result in eye strain.

lighting design vancouver, lighting in vancouver, lighting vancouver, modern lightingTrack Lighting

Track lighting is booming in popularity these days—and for a host of illuminating reasons. Upping the design flair to offices everywhere, track lighting has a ton going for it. For instance, they come in a wide range of styles, provide versatility in use, work as task lighting, save space, and are easy to install and configure.

Lamps

Perfect for creating an inclusive work environment, lamps provide an intimate gathering place for meetings or social opportunities. If you are looking for a way to boost concentration and team build, lamps make great, warm-glow lighting options for your workspace.

 

Task lighting

Overhead fluorescent lighting can cause a wide range of health issues, from hyperactivity to sleeping problems. Task lighting, however, shines directed light on your work, keeping the glare away from your eyes. To ensure your employees are happy and healthy, switch to task lighting with low-glare bulbs.

Dimmable lighting

Going with dimmable lighting allows you to control how little or how much light you need at any given time. Regulating the amount of light will also translate into lower energy consumption—and that’s good news for your operating expenses and your wallet. For more savings, consider installing timers or sensors in your workplace.

Consult with professional lighting manufacturers

Whatever project you’ve got on the go, if you want to make the most of your office lighting, consult with the experts. Quality Canadian lighting manufacturers will design and produce beautiful custom pieces to meet all your workplace lighting needs.

Proper lighting is crucial for any office. Making the right choices and having a clear plan in place will help you create the ideal lighting solution for you, your staff, and your clients.

Karice Lighting in Marble Home in West Vancouver – Inspired by Design.

Karice Lighting Marble Construction created specifically for this home.  Welcome to 2592 ROSEBERRY AVE, West Vancouver where you will find the most INCREDIBLE VIEW that you have ever seen in West Vancouver, right in the middle of DUNDARAVE VILLAGE. Built by Marble Construction, the Winner of BEST SINGLE FAMILY HOME CANADA 2016, 2017 and 2018. STUNNING, is an understatement of the beauty of this home. The incredible open concept main floor plan with kitchen to living room to walk out stunning southern exposed decks with incredible infinity swimming pool with attached BBQ lounge area with hot tub completely take in incredible PANORAMIC views of Downtown, Lions Gate Bridge and the Ocean like you’ve never seen before. High end everything. A MUST SEE!

Karice was thrilled when approached by Marble to place three of our lights into this stunning home.

Lighting Installed – Customized for this Home

Working directly with the builder with V Plus Illumination Design, it was decided to install three fixtures from Karice’s comprehensive lighting collection.  As fitting for this custom luxury home, the fixtures were customized specifically for this master piece home.

Entrance – Linked Luxennea with unique details

Our Linked Luxennea Chandelier was chosen for the front entrance.  Custom details were a must for the location.  The size of the light was modified to fit the space.  Typically sold as linked 5ft diameter luxennea lights, for this project, the size was changed to two 4ft diameter luxennea lights.  The direction of the lighting was also customized.  The lighting direction here is pointing down versus pointing in.  A custom gun metal color was selected to finish both the entrance and living room lighting pieces.  For the Living Room, a custom sized Diamond Luxennea Series 2 LED light was chosen.

Cascading Chandelier over three floors

A unique custom 15 light installation using our Electron Pendants was created in the staircase.  V Plus Illumination decided on how the fifteen lights would be suspended to create the best display of lights for the location.  The end result is spectacular.

Karice is happy to create custom pieces to fit your interior decor.

Sneak Peak to Da Vinci

Da Vinci Collection – Inspired by the Renaissance Man 900 549 Karice Lighting - Custom Lighting Vancouver

Da Vinci Collection – Inspired by the Renaissance Man.

Da Vinci Collection – Inspired by the Renaissance Man.

The Da Vinci Collection is inspired by one question: if Leonardo, the great Renaissancian, were alive today, how would he incorporate 21st Century technology into his designs?  Over the last ten months, this has been Karice’s inspiration and guide in creating this handcrafted luminaire series.

Luxury Home and Design Show – 2018

At the 2018 Luxury Home & Design Show, the Italian Renaissance is re-envisioned,  and when it came time to look for our inspiration, the choice was simple – Leonardo Da Vinci.  For Maurice Dery, co-founder and lead designer at Karice Lighting, the mission quickly became clear: to make use of mechanisms produced by Da Vinci to play with light, to make light move many different directions.  The team at Karice has created especially for the show a fixture that uses a pulley, combined with mirrors and magnifying glass, to create a dynamic play of light.

Booth Display – Partner with Kalu Interiors

Karice has worked with KALUInteriors to create this space, reminiscent of Da Vinci’s study.  It combines old and new elements.  For example, its brass components have an Old World feel, but, innovation is represented in new materials, such as the Mirror Flex Wall Coverings provided by ODYSSEY Wallcoverings.  The central chandelier, created by Karice, is the primary light source; using magnifiers, it bounces light throughout the space to compliment the reflective gold wall coverings, the extravagant porcelain slabs provided by LAMINAM Stone Tile, and the beautiful authentic antiques provided by SCOTT LANDON ANTIQUES.

We are so thankful to our Sponsors

We would not be able to do this display without the help of our many LHDS sponsors.  Special thanks to Kalu Interiors, Best Builders Ltd., Diffusion Lighting, Laminam Stone Tile, Mirian Aroeste, Odyssey Wallcoverings, Project X and Tall Tree Construction.

Here we are on BC Highway 7 East, somewhere between Mission and Harrison Mills. … Within several minutes you reach a small but picturesque Elbow Lake.  This is the site we chose to film our Electron Pendants.

What are we crazy?  Who dips their light into the lake?

Electron Pendants submerged in Elbow Lake.  Just for fun you say.  Why not?  The day was sunny and warm, and we wanted to experiment with our light, filming and photographing in the great outdoors.  Super Natural BC, what better setting to photograph and film your lighting products.

Numerous Videos are Shot

We filmed our light over top of the lake, in the lake, and even used our DJI Mavic Drone to get an awesome arial view of our light over top of Elbow Lake.  Check out this video clip HERE

We even have footage inside the lake

Using a waterproof video camera, our electron was filmed under water.  Just for fun!

SLS Lighting Art & Science 800 533 Karice Lighting - Custom Lighting Vancouver

SLS Lighting Art & Science – Seminar and Exposition June 12 2018 at Parq Vancouver, and June 14, 2018 at Hotel Grand Pacific in Victoria, BC.

Lighting, Art + Science will be held on June 12 + June 14, 2018 at the Parq Vancouver + Hotel Grand Pacific respectively

Seminar A: Light and Shadow. Sustainable Lighting for Urban Landscapes

This seminar will highlight how “Energy”, presented here as -shadows and light – played a key role during ancestral societies, in our present day, and will keep doing so in the future. Elias will talk about creating a Space within a Space, using light. Our privacy, the connectivity, speed of mobility and handling the big data are some of the issues that are being analyzed in order to achieve a human centric lighting design for urban and public spaces.

Seminar B: Making an Emotional Connection with Lighting

Light is used in a variety of applications and the important subject is PEOPLE. Colour preference is about people and applications. Discover how lighting design and light contributes to enhancing experiences. The effects of light sources on and below the black body locus will be discussed and how it affects perception and enhances colour appearance in a variety of applications. Explore how you want people to feel comfortable, attractive, confident, and good about themselves. An in-depth study on the cosmetic industry will also be explored.

Seminar C: The Science and Application of Circadian Lighting

With growing emphasis on healthy built environments, circadian lighting is a popular topic that many designers and end-users are being asked to explore. This lecture will outline the science behind circadian lighting, telling an easy-to-understand story that helps explain what we should expect from circadian lighting, as well as address important design considerations, who should expect to benefit from circadian lighting and what those benefits are.

Seminar D: The art + science of visual communcaiton

When one hears the term ‘digital signage,’ the first thing that comes to mind is the technology – or, more specifically, the hardware behind such mainstream applications as menu boards and video walls. Technology, however, is just the means to an experience, not an experience. In this seminar, we will discuss how to create out of the box experiences and to look ahead at technology as a way to tell your clients story.
