Full-scale drawings of five large branches, each over 8 feet in length, are laid out in the exact space of the steakhouse where the fixture will be suspended from the coffered ceiling above.
The branches create a sculptural, wreath-like fixture over 20 feet in diameter. The scaled drawings will help the design team determine how to secure the fixture from above.
Selecting the right diameter, length and planar positioning of each structural piece of tube steel is critical to achieving the desired organic characteristics in every ‘branch’ of the fixture.
Also in production are custom sconces that will extend the organic branch aesthetic throughout the restaurant. Shown here is the rough structure of the wall sconce next to its original concept drawing.
Little America and the design team at Denton House Design Studio worked closely with Hammerton to create the overall concept and aesthetic elements of each fixture, including brand texture, finish color and lamping specifics.
It maybe the dog days of summer, but at Hammerton we’re busy as ever with a number of exciting custom projects slated to ship in the coming weeks. One of the most unusual is a signature centerpiece for the new steakhouse currently undergoing construction at the AAA Four Diamond-rated Little America Hotel in Salt Lake City. Hammerton is thrilled to work with the talented team at Denton House Design Studio to bring this project to life.
