Lighting Design – Olah Table-Lamp

Olah Table Lamp table lamp a luminaire by Karice, designed using a circline bulb.

Olah reveals the depths of refinement. Conceived from Karice’s award-winning creations, Olah takes aesthetic inspiration from a previously award winning designed wall sconce to bring a new luminaire to life. The new table lamp  marries technological innovation with sleek and sophisticated design. Just like its predecessor (Olah Wall Sconce), the Olah table lamp illuminates on a ring without visible fasteners, giving a clean finished aesthetic. The light was conceived, created, and crafted by Maurice Dery and his team at Karice Enterprises.  What is incredibly unique about the new design is its clean, sculptural aesthetic.  The light can be placed on a pedestal to create a sculptural piece of art.

Lighting Design – Olah Table-Lamp

The light is made from CNC machined aluminum.  The box that houses the ballast is book matched sanded to make the seam disappear.  The box halves are punch marked inside to ensure the mating half is not misaligned.  A circline bulb is the light source, offering a bright light source for greater illumination.

The circline bulb is available in four sizes with different wattage’s.  In our imagery we have used both the 8″ and 9″ diameter circline bulb.  The 8″ diameter bulb is 22 watts, and delivers 1,150 lumens.  The 9″ diameter bulb is 30 watts, and delivers 1,900 lumens.  The light are offered in various color temperatures.  Warm white, or 3000k is the most popular color temperature.  The light is only available as non-dimmable.

While their focus is collaboration on custom projects, in 2014 Karice Enterprises began designing their own product line and now carry 30 unique products designed and manufactured at their plant in Surrey, Canada. Their recent lighting fixture releases are the result of new innovative designs curated by Maurice Dery at their state-of-the-art lighting and metal work facility.

Da Vinci Collection Wins Platinum
Da Vinci Collection Wins Platinum 1024 910 Karice Lighting - Custom Lighting Vancouver

DA VINCI COLLECTION wins PLATINUM.

INSPIRATION:
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? This has been the inspiration and guide in creating this handcrafted light. The Leonardo 1482 poetically resembles a rising sun, borrowing heavily from Renaissance-era mechanics, and is appropriately named for the year Leonardo da Vinci began designing and developing his inventions.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The Leonardo 1482 is like nothing ever seen. It reflects the Renaissance era, but uses modern led technology. The light uses machine gears, along with magnifiers that are used to intensify the light source, that are reflected onto mirrors. With a simple pull on the chain, eight gears move simultaneously to redirect the light reflection on the mirrors onto the wall or the floor. Using the latest in lighting, machining, and metalwork technology the light brings the Renaissance back to life.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
The led lights are installed so that the light points directly to the magnifying glasses. The magnifying glasses reflect the lights onto the mirrors. By a simple pull on the chain, 8 wheels move simultaneously to move the mirrors. The mirrors then redirect the light from the wall to floor and back again.

BRASS LIGHTS BLUBIRD

The incredibly talented team at Box Interior Designs commissioned Karice to collaborate on their lighting design for the new Blubird Clothing store on Alberni Street in Vancouver. Brass lights were designed and created for this beautiful store. A beautiful bird cage concept was presented by the Box Team, and we were thrilled to be a part of that vision. Additionally, three custom brass pendants are suspended over the custom curved brass mirror frame.

The store looks amazing.  Box had created a sure winner in their vision for this retail outlet.

The main feature piece in the store is Brass Lights. The designers at box envisioned a Brass Birdcage Chandelier. The birdcage is made with genuine brass round bars, and is suspended from a single canopy that will support the weight of the chandelier. Hand blown glass was chosen to diffuse the LED bulbs that illuminate each of the nine pendants. Originally two of the pendants hung below the brass cage. This gave the artistic piece and original look and random appeal. 

Enjoy your visit to the new Bluebird on Alberni Street, and feast your eyes on the sought-after international collections that curate an exclusive assortment of luxury clothing, accessories and beauty products. The new store is located at 1108 Alberni Street, in Vancouver British Columbia.

Lighting Design and Specification – Da Vinci Collection
Lighting Design and Specification – Da Vinci Collection 225 225 Karice Lighting - Custom Lighting Vancouver

If the Renaissance man were alive today, how would he use his body of work to design a lighting collection? This is the inspiration for Maurice Dery’s latest handcrafted luminaire series, designed and manufactured by the father-son design team of Maurice and Jordan Dery at Karice Enterprises in Surrey, BC.

In the fashion of Leonardo da Vinci, the theme revolves around machine gears, along with magnifiers that intensify the light sources and mirrors that redirect the light to the wall or floor. Using the latest in lighting, machining, and metalwork technology, the Karice’s Da Vinci collection brings the Italian Renaissance back to life, in avant-garde form.

Finding Leonardo in the 21st century

The Da Vinci collection is based on the challenging premise of using modern technology to create an original avant-garde suite of luminaire pieces that accurately portray the spirit of what Leonardo was doing in the late 15th and early 16th centuries. Specifically, the objective was to reflect the mechanics of Da Vinci, and to reflect his approach in magnifying and projecting light.

Unlike anything Maurice Dery and his award-winning team at Karice have created in the past, the Da Vinci collection demanded a reverence for history, and a resurrection of centuries-old lighting methodology.

The task was not easy. Karice has taken on many “impossible” projects, but epic pieces like the Sprocket, for example, were purely from the heart of Maurice. But with this series, Maurice was searching for what inspired Da Vinci.

Honouring a lifetime of ingenuity

Honouring the Renaissancian tradition required months of historical research. This was followed by extensive prototyping and development, beginning with the design and experimentation of the intricate gear components that form the core aesthetic of the collection’s feature piece, the Leonardo 1482.

The Leonardo 1482 poetically resembles a rising sun, borrowing heavily from Renaissance-era mechanics, and is appropriately named for the year Leonardo da Vinci began designing and developing his inventions.

The Vitruvian Table Lamp complements the 1482, with correlating expression. In honour of Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man, the table lamp speaks to the geometric purity and deconstructed anatomy this series reveals.

To complete the collection, the Infinity 1519 is an avant-garde luminaire symbolizing a setting sun, as 1519 was the year Leonardo da Vinci passed away. The ringed capsule has a seemingly endless horizon, so the sightline is infinite. It can be displayed as a hanging pendant or suspended within a half-moon table lamp.

Together, the corresponding pieces honour the story of history’s greatest designer: A mechanically-minded, artisan inventor—Leonardo da Vinci.

’The same way Da Vinci used magnifiers and mirrors to project candlelight, we’re projecting energy-efficient LED light through a magnifier, onto a mirror, and then transferred onto a wall (or the ceiling or floor),” says Maurice Dery. “The methodology is identical. The technology? 500 years apart.

“In my own small way, I have always related to Leonardo da Vinci — in the sense that I am both a designer and a builder. I was trained as a craftsman. I am an ironworker and a machinist. But I have always been an inventor, with an unquenchable passion to create challenging, awe-inspiring pieces.”

While their focus is collaboration on custom projects, in 2014 Karice Enterprises began designing their own product line and now carry 30 unique products designed and manufactured at their plant in Surrey, Canada. Their recent lighting fixture releases are the result of new innovative designs curated by Maurice Dery at their state-of-the-art lighting and metal work facility.

2018 INTERNATIONAL DESIGN AWARDS
Olah Sconce Wins Gold
PROCESS
The process is always the same. An idea is conceived, and the first step is to draft the design in Auto CAD. A 2-D drawing is created and refined. Later, CNC Programs are written to machine the parts. Parts are machined out of billet aluminum, finished, test fitted and sent for anodizing. After parts are anodized, the light is assembled, wired, inspected and certified.
DESIGN CHALLENGE
The challenge of this lighting design was to eliminate, entirely, any visible fasteners. What did it take to enable our designer to come up with a solution? Equipped, with 25 years running his own business and 40 years in the design and manufacturing industry, this has enabled us to have solutions to design and engineer the products we create. A solution was conceived, drafted, implemented, tested, and the results were 100% success.
SPECIFICATIONS
The light illuminates using a circuline, fluorescent bulb. The bulb is part of the lighting design. We have used both an 8” diameter and a 9” diameter bulb, depending on the configuration.
SIGNIFICANCE IN THE BIG PICTURE OF DESIGN
Great ideas are common, but excellent execution is rare. If you are not equipped with the ability to bring an idea to life, then that is all the idea is, an illusion. Through the execution process, design must evolve. It evolves to bring design and function together to create a working product. At Karice, our lead designer is not only equipped with the vision, but he possesses the skills, knowledge and expertise to bring that vision to life.

Leonardo 1482 Wins Silver for Interactive Lighting

2018 International Design Awards – SILVER

The Da Vinci Collection Leonardo 1482 is based on the premise of using modern technology to create an original avant-garde suite of luminaires that accurately portray the spirit of what Leonardo was doing in the 16th century. The objective was to reflect the mechanics of Da Vinci, and his approach in magnifying and projecting light. In the fashion of Leonardo da Vinci, the theme revolves around machine gears, and magnifiers to direct the light onto mirrors. Eight wheels with cogs, move simultaneously, via a pull on the brass chain to redirect the light onto the wall or floor.

The Leonardo 1482 wins SILVER in the Interactive category of the 12th International Design Awards Competition.

The Leonardo 1482 is like nothing ever seen. It is an interactive light. The light is part machine and part light fixture. The light source is directed onto magnifiers to intensify the light. The light is then directed onto the mirrors. A simple pull on the chain causes eight wheels with cogs to move simultaneously to change the direction of the light from the wall or onto the floor.

The gears we made for the light were like those from Leonardo’s day. They are wheels with cogs. Unlike modern day gears that mesh properly, these had to be worked and reworked to achieve the proper mesh to prevent excessive back lash, or binding.
The finishing was another challenge. We were able to source specialized solutions to antique the aluminum to give the appearance of old age iron. The genuine brass components were also patinated to result in a warm antique brass finish. The end result was perfect to reflect the 16th century Renaissance epoch.
