This project involved the manufacture of several different types of pseudo-reproduction lighting fixtures. They are not true reproductions, meaning that they were built from drawings and not copied from original parts. Our challenge was to satisfy the architect's discerning eye for detail and take the lead in resolving conflicting design issues.
We produced forty-eight type F24 lanterns, cast in bronze and with a simple brown patina applied so that the lanterns could have a uniform color until they could age naturally. Lamping is two (2) PLT26 lamps with electronic ballasts, clear, frosted tempered glass. Weight is 86 lbs.
Type F25 is a hanging version of type F24.
Type H3 has recessed up-lights to highlight the ceiling.
Type N-7 is a cast bronze wall bracket with a glass bowl and an oil-rubbed dark bronze finish.
Type N-1, similar to N-3 and N-1A is a solid bronze fixture fabricated from plate, sheet and bar and finished in an oil-rubbed dark bronze. 72" in diameter, 175 lbs
N-1A is 36" in diameter.
N-8 is a bronze lantern with sixteen 60A19 lamps and two 250 watt metal halide lamps on a separate circuit for use by cleaning crews.
