March 2015 In the Shop


Somerville Borough Hall, Somerville, NJ

HMR Architects. Catalog lighting: Drumcliff Bowl Pendant.
This project has just won a Perservation New Jersey Award for historic restoration (award ceremony March 19, 2015). HMR Architects selected our Drumcliff Bowl Pendant to create a focal point for the newly restored ceiling, and specified an unusual black aged patina on solid brass for the finish. The lenses are amber opal glass, and compact flourescent lamping was selected for energy efficiency and ease of maintenance. When traditional lighting effects are sought with compact fluorescence, warm lenses such as amber opal glass are often chosen for a beautiful effect.
