Da Vinci Collection - Leonardo 1482 Chandelier
Product > lighting: chandelier (multiple bulbs)
Karice Enterprises Ltd
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 as been Karice’s inspiration and guide in creating this handcrafted luminaire series.
In the fashion of Leonardo da Vinci, the theme revolves around machine gears, along with magnifiers that are used to intensify the light sources to mirrors, that can then re-direct 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.
The lighting collection was designed, developed, and manufactured in Surrey, BC by the father-son design team at Karice Enterprises: Maurice and Jordan Dery.
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. With a simple pull of the chain, eight wheels with brass cogs, move simultaneously to rotate three mirrors to redirect the magnified light source onto the wall or floor.
The entire collection includes four pieces, a chandelier, pendant and two table lamps.
