Entry Description

Kalu Interiors approached Karice to design and supply
lighting for the 2016 IDS Vancouver Central Bar display.
The theme planned was Alice in Wonderland. Lead
designer at Karice, began contemplating the story of Alice,
and the idea of huge mushrooms began to take hold.
Shroom is an interesting take on a Pendant lighting fixture.
Using thin gauge aluminum shapes, the mushroom gills,
thirty in all, form the unique shape of our light. Shroom is
an LED pendant light fixture that illuminates from both its
inner core and a down light. The illumination from within
casts a unique play of light onto the aluminum gills. A
beautiful array of colors results from the glow of its inner
core. The light is also equipped with an MR11 down light.
A mushroom shape is not your typical lighting fixture.
Travelling on a whimsical theme, the gills of a mushroom
heavily influenced our design.
