“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.

MOSQUITOs cluster in Seattle office
Jun 26, 2018 by dgv

The design team of SABArchitects, Robin Dalton Design and Nell Studio asked Resolute to scale up MOSQUITO to better suit a Seattle office space.  Twelve each of 48″, 60″ and 72″ diameter by 18″ tall fixtures are sprinkled throughout the project.

MOSQUITO is a member of THE WOODS family of fixtures.   MOSQUITO is formed of sustainable, lightweight, marine-grade Okoume plywood.  The frame is cut on Resolute’s CNC router, assembled, stained, sealed, then wrapped in Carnegie Fabric’s Xorel.  The shade fabric selected for this location is “Nexus” 6435-901.

A high-impact copolymer bottom diffuser smoothes 80W universal voltage LED illumination dimmed with a 0-10V Osram 1% driver.  Clear jacket electrical cord and stainless steel aircraft cables complete the look.

Design of Resolute’s MOSQUITO fixture was inspired by one of the fastest operational aircraft in the world at the time it went into battle for the British — in 1941.  To preserve scarce metal reserves and to speed production, the plane was made from pieces of wood, pressed and glued together in molds, earning it the nickname ‘The Wooden Wonder’.  The original Mosquito was designed by Sir Geoffrey de Havilland.

MOSQUITO light fixtures are hand built to order in Resolute’s Seattle facility.

Project designers also specified 112 rigid stem PROSPERITY fixtures — with 30″ diameter by 12″ tall Xorel shades wrapped in Carnegie Xorel “Prism” 6621-160 — and 10 STURGIS fixtures with 18″ tall aluminum shades in a bronze powdered 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.

Avennia Winery
Feb 20, 2017 by dgv

Boxwood Designs placed a custom 3‘x 3’ square cluster of nine PURITY pendants at the entrance of the new 1,000 sf tasting room for Avennia Winery in Woodinville, WA.  Six OTTO G9 pendants hang over the tasting counter.   Four additional PURITY pendants and two UTILITY ADA Wall fixtures are located elsewhere in the project.  All fixtures have an “oil rubbed” bronze powder coat finish.

Boxwood Designs also created Avennia’s brand and packaging design.  Avennia was inspired by the Roman name for the city of Avignon; Avennia’s winemaking goal is to evoke clarity: clarity of place, clarity of type, clarity of purpose.  Resolute fixtures are ideally suited to reinforcing that vision.

Resolute introduces a new family of fixtures:  The Woods

First in the family to appear is MOSQUITO.  MOSQUITO is formed of sustainable, lightweight, marine-grade Okoume plywood, cut on our CNC router, assembled, stained and sealed, then wrapped in Carnegie Fabric’s Xorel.  A polycarbonate disk smoothes and diffuses the LED array bed illumination.

Lutron dimming is equally suitable to whole building and single room solutions.  0-10v dimming is also available.

This 48″ diameter MOSQUITO is wrapped in Carnegie’s “Strata 6625-40″.

MOSQUITOs are hand built to order in our Seattle facility.
