What do Celtic knots, video projectors, the family dog, gondolas, pistols and princess colors have in common? Believe it or not, they've all been incorporated into Hammerton light fixtures at one time or another. As a custom manufacturer, we routinely tackle unique and unusual problems for our clients. Here are a few of our recent favorites.
Above & Below: When an Irish client asked us to incorporate a symbol of her ancestral heritage into a lighting package for her U.S. vacation home, our design team settled on the Celtic knot. Note the overlapping detail in the motif at the center of the dining chandelier.
Below: A bar light for an aviation enthusiast fabricated from a 1940's J3 Cub propellor, with rawhide shades featuring three different vintage aircraft, all hand-drawn in ink.
Below: A buffet light built with a retractable sneeze guard, designed and fabricated for the Watertable restaurant at the Hyatt Regency Resort & Spa in Huntington Beach, CA.
Below: A whimsical European-style pendant fit for a princess castle! Several of these fixtures were recently installed at a 'very happy place' in Shanghai, China. Don't let the playful finish colors fool you; they're AAMA-2604-rated outdoor finishes that offer the industry's highest standard for UV and corrosion resistance.
Below: A drum fixture, customized with quick release pistol holders. We actually built several of these fixtures for a residential client, but we're still not clear on the purpose of loaded guns hovering overhead...
Below left: A perfect fixture for the 'pet room', right? This client sent us photos of her labrador to create this realistic drum silhouette. Below right: A modified game room fixture incorporating a client's two favorite sports, skiing and mountain biking.
Above & Below: gondolas, big and small! Above right, three of these gondolas, each fabricated to 50% scale, are realistically cable-suspended in a Park City Client backyard overlooking the surrounding ski resorts.
Above and Below: While Hammerton's primary business is lighting, clients often ask us to create a wide range of furniture and accessories. Shown here are custom hide-covered barstools with footrests that resemble ski-pole baskets, and deer antler candelabras hand-sculpted from steel.
