Douglas Fanning, Uneven Dual Pirogue, Aluminum Ceiling Light, US, 2021

About the Item

Each blade starts as a solid aluminum bar that is then machined to form the "Pirogue", or canoe, shape at its ends. Long channels are milled top and bottom to conceal the LEDs. Then the bar is returned to the machine in order to create the "watery," rippled effect on the underside. The bars are then finely brushed, heated with a torch, and hand patinated to a dark oil-rubbed bronze, after which they are cleaned, lacquered, and fitted with LEDs. Aluminum bars are sanded, primed, and painted to the specified color and fitted with LEDs. All work is fabricated in our studio. These blades use a 1 inch x 2 inch bar and finished as patinated painted aluminum in Matte Black & Matte White (Gloss Black & Gloss White, or Silver are options as well). LEDs are dimmable 2700K warm white. Drawing from his knowledge of art and design (in addition to his architectural expertise), Douglas Fanning continually pushes the boundaries between form and physics to create clean, fluid, yet uncompromisingly daring pieces. In short, his multi-disciplined work harnesses a seamless creative dialogue between intellectual exploration and the organic realization of ideas.
