Electron Pendants submerged in Elbow Lake – Just for Fun.

Electron Pendants submerged in Elbow Lake – Just for Fun.

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!

RETTA inspired by Nature is what you will receive with this new lighting design.  We offer lighting for today’s modern world.  Simplicity and clean lines for today.

RETTA Inspired by Nature

Retta inspired by Nature.

Meet Retta.  Inspired by nature’s log jam on the shores of BC’s beautiful Harrison Lake, Retta takes her name from the Italian word for “straight line”.  Retta’s meticulously machined end caps with light gold anodized finish resembling brass, decorate the ends of this trendy design.  The grooves in the end caps create visual interest with three smooth surfaces.

Interior designers are seeking elegant, sophisticated, slim-lined lighting fixtures that won’t impede the view of the clients.  With Retta we have a classy, sleek fixture set to highlight any residential, corporate, or hospitality design.  The Retta lighting line is a fresh remake of the minimalistic linear light.

Retta’s slim shape allows for variety in its installation – suspended, surface mounted or recessed.

Lighting on Display at the Volvo Booth at IDS Vancouver, BC

Seventeen Retta lights were used in a car display at IDS Vancouver 2017.  Arranged in a curved fashion along the custom canopy, the lights mimic the car tracks of the vehicle.  The 6ft x 18ft canopy, also designed by Karice, served up an additional branding opportunity for the car manufacturer.

Sure to be stylish in any setting, the light body is a blackened bronze anodized finish and frosted clear acrylic diffusers – a perfect match with the end caps.  Retta is available in 18″, 24″, 36″ and 48″ lengths.  Custom installations can be made up to 20ft long.  The light source is an integral LED strip available in 2700K, 3000K and 4100K.

LIT Design Awards - Electron WIns
Electron Pendant Wins at 2017 LIT Design Awards Competition
Electron Pendant Wins at 2017 LIT Design Awards Competition 718 1024 Karice Lighting - Custom Lighting Vancouver

Electron  is announced as a winner of the 2017 LIT Design Awards Competition in Los Angeles.

Electron Pendant Wins at 2017 LIT Design Awards Competition

Electron Pendant wins at 2017 LIT Design Awards Competition. It has won in the Pendant and Designer Lighting Categories.

In physics, the electron is a subatomic particle with a negative elementary, electric charge.  Electrons radiate energy in the form of photons when accelerated.   Thus, begins the inspiration for the light that we have designed and titled “The Electron”. The Electron is simple and refined, yet modern and futuristic.

The Electron pendant is part of a lighting series that has been in development since December 2015.  The series now includes a wall sconce and pendant (2016 release).

The Electron reflects efficient engineering, without compromising beauty or functionality. It is illuminated with energy efficient LEDs and diffused by the frosted clear acrylic along the inner and outer rings. The double-sided lighting maximizes illumination, while the LED maximizes efficiency. Aside from its beauty, the frosted acrylic also serves as a diffuser to eliminate hot spots.

Like the subatomic particle, the light is deceptively simple. But as you delve deeper, its ingenuity is revealed. On the front surface, there are no visible fasteners on either side of the rings, which allows for a clean and refined finish.   The light is suspended from co-axial cable which offers a clean suspended appearance.  The light appears to be floating in mid-air.

 

LIT Tokyo Exhibition – May 12th – 16th 2018

Karice’s Electron Pendant has been chosen by LIT Design Awards to be included in the Tokyo LIT Exhibition, among 30 projects selected from the 2017 LIT Winners.  The exhibition will occur at the Space Market venue in Tokyo, Japan on May 12th to 16th 2018.

GOOD ANIMAL and KARICE COLLABORATE ON CUSTOM LIGHTING
GOOD ANIMAL and KARICE COLLABORATE ON CUSTOM LIGHTING 1024 768 Karice Lighting - Custom Lighting Vancouver

Good Animal, Karice Enterprises collaborate to create Custom Design Pendant Lights

In December 2014, Karice was approached by Vancouver Lighting Designer, Hesam Ghaemi to collaborate with him on a new custom lighting installation for the new Earls to be built at Mall Millennia in Orlando, Florida, USA.  Hesam had a new idea for custom design pendant lights.

Two lighting designs were quoted to Good Animal in February of 2015.  Only one of Hesam’s lighting designs was selected by the Earls Design Team to be used in their new project in Orlando.

Shortly thereafter, the project was awarded to Good Animal to build fifteen new custom designed pendant lights for the new location in Orlando.  Karice was contracted by Good Animal to further design and craft the pendant lights, and to bring Hesam’s vision to life.

Karice immediately went to work to prepare the shop drawings for the project.  Round four shop drawings were approved by Earls in the fall of 2015.  In December, Karice began the process of drafting the mechanical construction drawings.  Production began shortly thereafter.

Fifteen custom design pendant luminaires were crafted by the team at Karice for the new project.  Design challenges included the sloped ceiling that the lights were to be mounted to.  An approximate angle was provided by architects.  Using this angle Karice designed a two piece canopy that was sloped as well as adjustable.  Site conditions are never what they seem, so  this was calculated into the design of the custom ceiling canopy.

Slight aesthetic design changes did occur along the way.  The back metal diffusers were originally black, and were changed to gold.  The height of the glass diffusers were modified, to suit the bulb that was eventually selected.  Everything had to be perfect for the new project, and perfect it was.  The final result was stunning.

Pendant Lighting Styles, Shades, Materials and Colours
Pendant Lighting Styles, Shades, Materials and Colours 150 150 Karice Lighting - Custom Lighting Vancouver

Pendant lighting styles are very unique and diverse in the modern world. They come in many different colours such as black, white, red, blue, orange – the sky is the limit.

Pendant Lighting Styles and Shades – Wide Variety of Materials and Finishes

Pendant lights are incredibly versatile and stylish lighting fixtures that work well with most interior spaces. For one, pendant light shades come in different materials and finishes. At Karice, we stick to things like copper, silver, iron, brass, glass… and avoid things like cotton, polyester, etc as we design and build pendants for commercial and retail spaces as opposed to residential spaces.

Popular Fabric Pendant Shades VS Treated Wood and Metal

Some popular fabric pendant shades can also be made out of linen, burlap, hemp, jute and rattan and paired with wood or metal panels. At Karice we prefer a more polished, professional and sleek look and feel so we may opt to design a shade of wood and metal – and omit the fabric.

Fabric Shades for Residential Dwellings – We Focus on Metals for Businesses and Professional Establishments

Fabric shades are more suited for residential dwellings in the living room or bedroom. Since we are a custom manufacturer and metalwork outfit, our products are more tailored for business owners of restaurants or establishments where an atmosphere for the public needs to be created.

We are mentioning fabric here because we are very passionate about what we do and know that once you hire us for your project you will be glad you didn’t choose fabric! Our award winning designer really knows his stuff.

Pendant Lighting is Soft, Diffused and Striking – We Carefully Design Based on Where Your Lights Will be Installed

Our pendant lighting styles provide soft, diffused lighting without any harsh glare as we carefully take everything into consideration, including where the lighting will be placed.

Glass Pendant Shades for Elegance and to Open a Room Up – Clear, Frosted, Tinted, Etched, Any Style, Any Way

Glass pendant shades can add a touch of elegance and open a room up because they are see through and airy in appearance. Different treatments like frosted, tiffany style and tinted can create a beautiful look. Metal pendant shades also act as statement pieces and can be polished chrome, oil-rubbed bronze, brushed or glossed nickel, black iron finish or anything else that you would like. We do it all and believe nothing is impossible!

Benefits of Ordering Pendant Lighting from a Custom Lighting Manufacturer Rather Than Amazon, Home Depot, IKEA, Costco

Pendant lights of various colours, materials and styles may be found at Amazon, Costco, Home Depot and IKEA, but your choices are limited to what they currently have in stock. One model may have the perfect design but the wrong colour. Another might be in the right colour but in a style that doesn’t match the space where it will be installed.

The bottom line here though is that these stores are awesome for homes and small offices. In restaurants, retail chains, hotels or upscale environments, you need a custom manufacturer to create a look that is perfect and professional for you and your patrons.

Choose a Custom Lighting Manufacturer Over a Retail Store for Quality, Durability, Design and Reliability

With custom lighting manufacturers, pendant lights can be made in the exact colour, style and material that you are looking for. They are also much more high end and “finished”. Hiring a custom manufacturer will save you time and money in the long run because instead of browsing through countless models in retail stores, you have the freedom to create something truly custom that will match your space.

At Karice we build things to last too, so they will last for many years to come. Compared to cheap options, that could be embarrassing, we ensure you that our work has high quality craftsmanship and has been engineered correctly.

Order Modern Pendant Lighting for Your Business – Kitchen, Kitchen Island, Lobby, Entrance or any Room You’d Like to Spice Up

The design flexibility of modern pendant lighting makes it ideal for kitchen, lobby, entrance or any room. Pendant lighting doesn’t take up much room so lights can be suspended just about anywhere. For a chique and minimalist style, you may want to consider pendant lighting in an open room where they can act as a focal point. Pendant lights can be made in many different shapes and sizes too, in order to match your space.
