…something more majestic and stable
Inspiration was drawn from Seattle’s history of aeronautical construction for this 36” diameter hand-shaped aluminum shade with paired aluminum solid rivet connections.
Shade fabrication is completed entirely on site in Resolute’s shop: the composite LED array bed is cut on the CNC router; metal panels are sheared, hand beaten, smoothed on an English wheel, bead rolled, and finally hand-rubbed.
The universal voltage fixtures are illuminated with six LED array modules. A Lutron driver offers the smoothest and most gradual fade-to-black dimming available and is equally suitable to whole building and single room solutions. Daylighting, motion sensors, and remote control functions are all supported. 0-10v dimming is also available.
Openings in the top array bed allow gentle reflected uplight. A lightweight fabric bottom diffusion disk removes easily for cleaning.
