Inspired by double curved surfaces, this corporate café lighting feature mimics wave-like movement, using credit cards and LED lights. Built for a Confidential Financial Company, the lighting feature has over 1400 hanging points with unique rod lengths supporting 496 LED lights and 960 credit cards. The feature’s credit card sized LED lights were engineered with seamless acrylic box enclosures, to disperse light evenly, creating a consistent glow. Its unique rods were made to ensure a double curved appearance was achieved while simultaneously hiding all wiring from view. The entire feature came together as a gradient of credit cards moving across the ceiling. This unique lighting feature pushed the limits on ceiling fixtures, lighting capabilities, and panel design.
