The objective for this project was to cover the structural columns with a light installation made up of various materials and electrical components. The fins were made from laminated plywood wrapped with brake formed aluminum skins. The heat-formed acrylic lenses received a subsurface vinyl diffuser treatment to accent their curved nature. Added in was the color-changing RGB LED lighting that allows the end user to control the colors and frequency of change. The overall aesthetically pleasing addition of these lighted column covers accomplished several client driven objectives.
