Halo Light – Circline Bulb Contemporary Light Design
Halo Light – Circline Bulb Contemporary Light Design 1024 410 Karice Lighting - Custom Lighting Vancouver

The Halo light is a complicated piece that brings a circline bulb from the 1950s back to life with a modern and contemporary lighting design.

Our industrial design and product development for the Halo light was some of our most exhaustive to date. We were given a circline bulb and an undeveloped idea: to build a custom light feature that looked like champagne bubbles. It proved to be a formidable challenge!

It all started in September 2014. Karice sat down with the client – Matthew McCormick Studios – and drew up some concepts of how to bring his idea to life. Before we did the industrial design, we first wanted to ensure that what we were envisioning accurately matched what he was looking for. Once our pencil drawings were approved (by the end of the meeting!), we went to work.

Karice began its development process using Auto CAD drafting to design a custom box to hold the circline bulb. Not only did it have to fit the electronic ballast, but Karice wanted to create one product for all three different sizes of circline bulbs. Our first attempt was with steel. Using our OMAX waterjet machining centre, we cut the components needed to create the box, and several prototype models were developed. After many trials, we finally came up with a CNC machined two piece aluminum box.

The final finishing details still had to be worked out. McCormick wanted a brass look, but brass is very expensive. To reduce costs, Karice recommended aluminum with gold anodizing. Careful attention was given to apply a fine brushed finish on all exterior surfaces of the box. The box edges were then chamfered to give an elegant fine look.

After creating the single Halo pendant, Karice’s next task was to create a chandelier fixture that mimicked the bubbles in champagne. To achieve this, Karice designed and developed a large 30-inch circular metal canopy that allowed ten Halo pendants to hang simultaneously. Using various sizes of circline bulbs at varying heights, Karice created the final Halo fixture that showcased in the Bottega VIP Lounge at IDS West 2014.

All fixture and industrial design, product and component development, manufacturing, and certification of the non-dimmable Halo light were completed by Karice at its facility in Surrey (near Vancouver, BC, Canada). Powder coating and anodizing were outsourced by Karice to local vendors.

Luxennea – Linked LED Chandelier, Custom Lighting
Luxennea – Linked LED Chandelier, Custom Lighting 1024 394 Karice Lighting - Custom Lighting Vancouver

Introducing Luxennea – a new lighting series from Karice using LED lighting technology. Energy efficient and elegant, the permanently “linked” Luxennea is suspended by aircraft cables to give the illusion that it is floating in the air.

Inspired by geometric shapes, the Linked Luxennea is the first in this original series, which is the culmination of Karice’s intellectual property on previous projects. The sophistication and craftsmanship of the Luxennea collection is a true reflection of 23 years in the industry.

It’s also big! The large chandelier combines two 5-foot diameter enneagon rings. As viewed in this blog post, the two-ringed Linked Luxennea is 8-feet 6-inches long. (For context, we have photographed the Linked Luxennea above our Novem table, another original piece by Karice.)

The numerous custom components needed to create the Linked Luxennea were designed and manufactured in-house here at Karice. An aluminum extrusion was developed. Special hangers were created to enable handling of the two geometric shapes simultaneously (this was especially needed during the powder coating process), and a unique in-house technology was developed to power the light without wiring.

As shown, the Linked Luxennea is just two rings, but it can be configured with as many links and shapes as desired, suspended in a variety of configurations. The tilted angle can easily be adjusted, and the lights can also be suspended further apart. So from this preset, an infinite number of creative possibilities can be achieved.  The combinations are unlimited.

All fixture design, product development, and manufacturing of the Linked Luxennea were completed by Karice at its facility in Surrey (just outside Vancouver, BC, Canada).  The powder coated finishing was outsourced to local vendors.

DAWN Light Fixture – Custom Brass Chandelier – Design Collaboration
DAWN Light Fixture – Custom Brass Chandelier – Design Collaboration 1024 768 Karice Lighting - Custom Lighting Vancouver

Every new light we build is a challenge. The Dawn custom brass light is no exception. The real work in creating any light is how the light works, how it is put together.  As Steve Jobs so succinctly put, “Design is not just what it looks like and feels like.  Design is how it works”   Such is the case with the DAWN light fixture.   Many complex design details were done by the team at Karice to make the Dawn light fixture work.  The Dawn light fixture was a collaboration between Karice and Matthew McCormick Design.  The vision, or concept was Matthew’s, but the design is by Karice.  Without AutoCAD, without years of manufacturing know how, without the expertise of the team at Karice, the Dawn light fixture would cease to exist.  Similarly, one can have an idea for a novel, this does not make him a novelist.  It is the actual author who is the designer, creator and novelist.  Karice is the author of the Dawn light fixture.  Any subsequent lights are a reverse engineering process of the original model created in December 2014.

Custom Design, DAWN Light Fixture –  The Beauty of Genuine Brass Fabrication

There is nothing that can be compared to the use of genuine brass.  Brass plating and anodized aluminum are attempts to recreate brass, but there is nothing like the REAL thing.  The feel, the look is incomparable. The rich luster of genuine brass is an organic array of hues.

Custom Manufacturing and Challenges in Design

A lot went into this piece. Every single component of this chandelier had to be designed by team Karice from the ground up. The Y-connectors and T-connectors were first drafted in AutoCAD.  Preliminary prototypes were built in aluminum.  Once the final parts were approved, Karice went to work to make the parts using genuine brass.

Beautiful Brass Custom Light called DAWN

In August 2014, lighting designer Matthew McCormick approached Karice with the concept.  A Photoshop image was presented to us as seen below, with some rough approximate dimensions.  Karice designed and developed  the components from the ground up.  We started by drafting a 2D profile on AutoCad. Once the final scale was approved, we brought the part to our CNC machining center to make it into a usable threaded connector.

Once all of the brass components were completed, then the real fun began.  How do we make a light look like the photo?   This was literally an experiment in itself, since we had no formal drawings and no dimensions to work with.  We were only given a Photoshop image and a guide line of how big the light should be.  What length should the tubes be? We had no idea.   The light was literally a scratch build, completed in December 2014, while Matthew honeymooned in Bali.

The work that went into this beautiful creation was beyond the call of duty.  Lead designer and maker, Maurice poured his heart and soul into creating the masterpiece.  Every detail was not left to chance.  Maurice even chose to have Matthew’s logo machined into the covers of the connectors.  Such a subtle touch, but only adding to the beauty of the light.

The end result was breathtaking.  A fellow acquaintance, businessman and mill worker commented that he had not seen such a beautiful finish on a light.  He had seen other competitors lights, and mentioned that their finishing did not measure up to what he saw on our shop floor.

Karice has only ever made one Dawn light fixture.  It now resides at a residential home in Calgary, Alberta.

Geometric Light Earls Assembly Row
Geometric Light – Earls Assembly Row
Geometric Light – Earls Assembly Row 1024 678 Karice Lighting - Custom Lighting Vancouver

As a custom lighting manufacturer we get the opportunity to work on a wide variety of different lighting projects. A great example of this is the light installation at the Earls Kitchen + Bar on Assembly Row in Boston, called the Geometric. We were asked to manufacture this piece for Matthew Mate Lighting (now Matthew McCormick Studios), who was commissioned by Earls to design a lighting feature for their space.

It all began in December 2013, when the initial sketch by the Earls Design team was brought to Karice by Matthew and Mate. As we refined and developed it, Mate came up with the idea to have the lights tilt at different angles. Brilliant! After a final design was selected, Karice began working on bringing the concept to reality. Shop drawings by Karice were approved by Earls, and Karice went to work.

Frames had to be formed, welded, and cleaned to be ready for powder coating. After welding, the corners had to be ground smooth.

After final assembly and testing, the lights were carefully packaged, crated, and shipped to their final destination at Earls Assembly Row in Boston, Massachusetts.

But it didn’t stop there! The concept for the Geometric custom light fixture was further refined by Karice for a future Earls project: the Shattered light installed at Earls Tyson’s Corner in Virginia.

What we enjoy about the custom lighting industry is the challenge! Every light we manufacture is unique and different, which can present many challenges along the way, from concept to the final product. A lot of time is spent designing and developing the light fixture. In some cases, components that don’t even exist need to be designed, prototyped, tested, and produced. What Karice brings to the table is its ability to take the concept to the final product. We do all of the designing, development, and manufacturing in-house. We are able to oversee every aspect of the project to ensure a quality, stunning piece at the end of the day.
