A little background…
The inspiration came from the highest paying commission I ever did, a kitchen light fixture that was recessed into the apex of a dome in a penthouse condo kitchen. For scale, the dome ID was 10 feet in diameter, the 3/8" steel disc that forms the fixture was 3 feet in diameter. The glass prisms are a foot long, and reveal by 4". When you turned it on, it looked like the voice of God could emanate from it.
Acrylic transmits light like glass… He thought.
( the red line is me marking the depth of the acrylic disc in the black aluminum bulb housing)
You don’t want to do this.
A magnetic mount.
Fingers are still sore from weeding and press-fitting 2" long Acrylic slivers into same sized holes.
I’ve got 16 recessed fixtures in the ceiling. Yeah - that’s not gonna happen.
I will take this opportunity to commend the Team on improvements in file processing times, pause, and all the other ways my machine has evolved recently. Gratitude.
