In physics, the electron is a subatomic particle with a negative elementary, electric charge. Electrons radiate energy in the form of photons when accelerated. Thus begins the inspiration for the light that we have designed and titled "The Electron".
The Electron pendant is part of a lighting series that has been in development since December 2015. The electron wall sconce was the first fixture of this series. We have now designed and manufactured the Electron pendant.
The Electron reflects efficient engineering, without compromising beauty or functionality. It is illuminated with energy efficient LED strips through frosted clear acrylic along the inner and outer rings. The double-sided lighting maximizes illumination, while the LED maximizes efficiency. Aside from its beauty, the frosted acrylic also serves a functional purpose, as it is easy on the eyes. There are no hot spots, as they are cleverly concealed. The light has a pleasing colour temperature of 3000K.
Like the subatomic particle, the light is deceptively simple. But as you delve deeper, its ingenuity is revealed. On the front surface, there are no visible fasteners on either side of the rings, which allows for a clean and refined finish. The light is suspended from co-axial cable which offers a clean suspended appearance. The light with no visible electrical wiring pollution, it appears to be floating in mid-air.
The Electron is simple and refined, yet modern and futuristic. The pendant is part of a broader lighting series that includes a hanging pendant, a horizontal dining pendant, wall sconce and a flush ceiling mounted luminaire. Each Electron was designed, developed, and manufactured by Karice Enterprises Ltd., in Surrey, British Columbia, Canada.
The development of this luminaire employed many complex manufacturing processes, all of which were done in house at the Karice Facility with the exception of the finishing. The anodized finish of the pieces was outsourced by local vendors.
