Colony explores the complexity and detail 3D printing can offer in lighting products
The Colony lighting series works as a fully functional light while celebrating the strong emotional response it evokes.
The Colony series comes in a Chandelier, floor lamp and pendant form.Colony has two elements. The use of aluminium gives the connections and fittings a clean and precise aesthetic.
The second element is the beautiful intricacies and complexities of the 3D printed form. Against the traditional material of aluminium, the 3d printed element draws the observer in to investigate the unfamiliar forms. The juxtaposition of these two elements emit very different qualities, however, their relationship is seamless and in harmony. They Complement each other. Whether Colony is illuminated or dormant it is designed to intrigue, evoke emotion and complement the space it inhabits.
Colony has a large emphasis on 3D printing. 3D printing is an additive manufacturing process rather that a subtractive manufacturing process. The means zero waste is produced while making these parts. The Colony Series runs completely off 12V LED technology. These require very little power and can last up to 50,000 hours. The vision for Colony is a timeless one. The emotive response from Colony never gets old. You never get sick of looking at it. This in combination with high quality parts gives me hope these lights will have long and visually impacting lives.
