Constellation: Designer's Notes

We thought you might be interested in seeing how our upcoming Constellation series all came about.

Says Adam Pollock, the designer:
"This is one of those development ideas that abides its own schedule. Ten years ago I was inspired by the moiré patterns created with alternating panels of perforated stainless steel sheet metal. I fabricated a small 1ft star as a mockup but then set it aside as my attention was drawn elsewhere. This seed lay dormant for years.

For the past two years I have been staring at a tiny paper star-shaped night-lantern that hangs in my children’s bedroom. Every night it would remind me of the long-lost metal star. Finally its own time arrived and that seed was nurtured to maturity with the help of all the staff at Fire Farm."
Below, the original sheet metal star that started it all, and the paper lantern that re-inpsired the idea.
