“Paper” Lanterns on a Towering Scale
Nov 19, 2018 by dgv

Scott Redman, CEO of Sellen Construction, chose local architect Olson Kundig for his first development project, a design/build venture.  Redman’s goal was to create an environmentally responsible building emphasizing locally sourced materials that could also serve as a canvas for public art.

The newly-constructed 12-story Class A mixed use building is located at 9th & Thomas in Seattle’s South Lake Union neighborhood on the site of Sellen Construction’s former offices, a site that has been in the Sellen family since 1944.

Olson Kundig turned to Resolute to develop and fabricate a gigantic illuminated feature for the lobby.  A cluster of eighteen 12′ tall by 18″ square “paper” lanterns float in the two-story volume. Lantern frames are remarkably delicate square cold rolled steel, precisely welded, ground, then hand-finished with black oxide.  Shade material is an aramid mylar composite.

A nearly 9′ LED core assembly blurred by opal white diffusion lights each lantern.  The 45W 2700K 95 CRI LED array provides 5,145 total source lumens.

STURGIS selected for Sawyer
Sep 11, 2018 by dgv

A major remodel of a restaurant space in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood is the result of a successful collaboration between chef Mitch Mayers, one of Zagat’s 2018 “Eight Under the Radar Chefs to Know in Seattle,” and Graham Baba Architects.

The restaurant’s name, Sawyer, alludes to the building’s history as a sawmill.  Built in the 1920s, the building features exposed beams and floor to ceiling windows.

Graham Baba turned to RESOLUTE to solve the booth lighting challenge.  Eight custom fabricated steel cranes allow STURGIS pendants to hover over tables.   The STURGIS shades are 10″ tall and are suspended by olive cloth covered cord.  Shades and cranes have an oil rubbed bronze powder coat finish.

The Metropolitan Grill
Aug 29, 2017 by dgv

Pleased with the custom fixtures produced for Heartwood Provisions, owner Consolidated Restaurants returned to RESOLUTE to assist in refining and renovating the interior of its iconic Metropolitan Grill steakhouse, as part of a greater operational infrastructure overhaul.

The Metropolitan Grill originally opened in the heart of Seattle’s financial district in 1951.  The classic steakhouse is housed in the historic Marion Building, completed in 1903.  Design of The Metropolitan Grill complements and highlights the building’s original detailing.

Wall illumination was shifted from beacon-style plastic shades to a wash of light emphasizing warm wood paneling.  The twenty-nine 18” x  11.5” wall fixtures are an extension of RESOLUTE’s Bonneville concept: radius-bent steel shades with a black oxide finish, burnished brass reflector illuminated by four 5.5W Philips HUE white ambiance LED lamps.

Color and intensity of Philips HUE LED lamps is fully adjustable via WiFi.

Forty-four 12.5” tall hard-mounted table fixtures continue the tradition of banker’s lamps, while improving on quality and reducing scale to address servers’ request for more space on tables.  Intimate pools of light are cast by burnished brass reflectors inside 4.5” hand-blown glass shades — blue-green to match the new banquette upholstery.  All brass parts were made in-house, silver soldered and burnished.  The reflector was cut on RESOLUTE’s CAD/CAM router and rolled on a mandrel, the chassis integrating lamp holder, reflector, glass and arm was 3D-printed in UL-rated filament.  The table fixture is lit with one 5.5W Philips HUE white ambiance LED lamp.

Sixty-six matching blue-green glass votives were hand blown to hold liquid paraffin lamps — for use on movable tables.  RESOLUTE’s near neighbor, Urban Hardwoods, provided a chunk of “living” Madrone from its sawmill for the glass mold.  The mold was shaped on RESOLUTE’s router.

Twelve large existing chandeliers were updated with new blackened steel trim and Philips HUE LED lamps.

STURGIS is an element of shape, a most basic form.  Tank rolled aluminum, two solid rivets each side to hold suspension and socket hardware.  Simplicity itself.

STURGIS harnesses the latest medium-base (E26) LED lamp technology into pure downlight: a cord-hung or rigid stem pendant.

Shade is 4″ in diameter, shade height is specifiable.  11″ height is shown below.

Polished, lustre or matte natural aluminum or powder coat finishes are available.   Colored fabric-covered cord further customizes the look.
