Skidmore Janette, architect, collaborated with Resolute to create a custom focal point for the new Heartwood Provisions restaurant in downtown Seattle.

Design of the fixture was fully developed in CAD, yet is still very much a product of careful handcrafting in the Resolute metal shop.
The resulting impressive Ø72” fixture is jig welded from laser cut steel sections and rolled steel plates complimented by a hand-rubbed black oxide and wax finish.  The fixture features ten downward facing interior tubes holding 14W LED E26 (medium base, screw in) lamps.  The blackened tubes are roll-formed steel with a subtle bead-rolled detail and are finished on the inside with a decorative copper band with hand-rubbed “old penny” finish.
Weighing in at nearly 250 pounds, simplicity of installation was paramount.  The support structure was installed first, then the decorative ring hooked on with turnbuckles.  Electrical connections were made last.  The structure of the ring provides the accessible wiring enclosure.  Provisions were made for easy alignment and leveling.
Well pleased by the custom chandelier, restaurant owners invited Resolute to refine the restaurant lighting scheme with four additional large fixtures featuring a copper mesh ring circling a Puncheon-style interior, and five Puncheon ceiling lights customized with metal trims.
Heartwood Provisions specializes in contemporary American cuisine; the restaurant opened in early 2016 at 1103 First Avenue (First & Spring).  Wilcox Construction was the general contractor.
