Wisconsin State Capitol – String of Pearls Light Fixture
Material – Painted aluminum
2003 Top Job Awards Gold Medalist – Category H – Furniture & Accessory Fabrication.
The Assembly Chamber challenged us to find the correct balance between aesthetics and functionality. The most difficult portion of this room proved to be the elegant ring of light fixtures suspended from the ceiling.
Dubbed “The String of Pearls”, this job required us to complete patterns and cast a collection of aluminum fixtures that were installed from both above and below the skylight.
Each fixture was mounted to its own cable so any specific fixture can be lowered all the way to the floor when a light bulb needs to be replaced.
