Sherry Williamson Design, Inc.
Northern Lights, an intriguing kinetic sculptural lamp, was designed by interior designer, architect and artist Sherry Williamson. As a floor or table lamp, the fixture transforms the mood and environment in the space it occupies.
Williamson has designed custom lighting for over 20 years, and was inspired to create Northern Lights as an off-shoot of her ongoing series of whimsical wood, wire and ceramic sculptures.
The design for Northern Lights balances a minimalist machined aesthetic with hand-crafted elegance.
Williamson chose a small team including Phoenix Day Lighting, the venerable family-owned San Francisco manufacturer, to fabricate the unusual fixture. Phoenix Day’s skilled team of artisans calibrated and machined the refined components of Northern Lights, bringing the design to life.
The poetic lamp features a hand-thrown and glazed ceramic cylinder base topped by a polished nickel disk with an array of 240 gently waving stainless steel rods. A powerful custom LED light source spills an ever-changing array of luminous hues up through the wires and onto the walls and ceiling above, reaching 15 feet or more.
The fixture measures 45” in height, is 10" in diameter and is compliant with UL 2108 Low Voltage and 8750 LED standards.
