Lumos Shield

Lumos Shield, made of Hawaiian koa and rosewood with steel trim and hardware, nestles in the "Natural Elements" Collection of the Sculptural Lighting Sequence. Its strong, angular structure represents the stoicism of organic materials harnessed by the masculine confines of industry. Lumos Shield was designed for Stephen Silke, a brilliant 21st century author and fine art collector. We recently received it on loan to capture these images, and found that the materials married together well after some time outdoors. The metals show a nice rust patina, and the tones in the wood grains pulled out a weathered richness. It was nice to see this one again!
