Radiance covers a standalone brick fireplace in a mid century ranch home in Broad Ripple, Indiana. The clients rarely used their existing wood-burning fireplace and wanted to change its function. We proposed a reactive ambient lighting piece that still hosts the traditional qualities of the hearth, by re-centering the focus of the home and providing an ambient environmental effect.
Medium: Urethane Plastic, LED, MDF, Acrylic
Location: Indianapolis, IN
Size: 9’ x 7’ x 3’
Similar to the lighting effects of fire, Radiance creates dynamic changes in intensities across it surface. This makes the piece enticing to watch and because the pulses fade in and out so smoothly the lighting is not overbearing. There is a distinct difference in the lighting qualities throughout the day and into the night, as the piece becomes more and more the central component bringing light into the home.
