Australian Catholic University Chapel

In 2012, Bluelab Design was appointed during the design process by Umow Lai. Bluelab Design worked with Woods Baggot Architects on conceptual designs and final drawings.

The design changed minimally over the period of six months, with Bluelab Design helping the process with technical advice. Lowering gear was added so the pendants could be lowered for cleaning, and the pendant was made with aluminium laser cut in pieces and welded to achieve a 1300mm-diameter ring with extruded fluorescent uplighters. Suspension was 5.0mm stainless steel wire.

The design was simple and clean, although to manufacture a ring fitting is very difficult. Bluelab Design supplied three elegant and beautiful pendants.
