CHRISTMAS DECORATION

PROJECT DESCRIPTON

THE DESIGN WAS CONCEIVED FROM THE DESIRE TO INCORPORATE A CLEAN, CONTEMPORARY INDUSTRIAL LOOK IN A TRADITIONAL SPACE COHESIVELY. WE BELIEVE THAT WE ACCOMPLISHED THIS GOAL BY CHOOSING JUST THE MATERIALS NEEDED TO ACHIEVE THIS END. OUR TREES ARE CONSTRUCTED FROM METAL FLASHING, CUT AND CURVED INTO A SPIRAL TO EMULATE THE SHAPE OF A TREE WITHOUT BEING TOO LITERAL. IN ADDITION, THE FLASHING ON THE CENTERPIECE TREE AND THE TWO SIX FOOT TREES WILL BE FABRICATED BY LASER CUTTING SEASON’S GREETINGS IN THE MANY LANGUAGES SPOKEN THROUGHOUT THE SOFITEL PROPERTIES AND WORLDWIDE. THE SMALL TABLETOP TREES WILL BE CREATED IN MUCH THE SAME WAY WITH NO LASER CUTTING, BUT WILL STILL CONTAIN THE GREETING MESSAGE IN WRITING. THE FLASHING WILL BE ATTACHED WITH CHAIN, AND WILL THEN BE SUSPENDED IN SPACE BY CHAIN. THE CENTERPIECE TREE WILL BE SUSPENDED FROM A CRANKOVATOR TRIPOD, AND THE TWO SIX FOOT TREES WILL BE SUSPENDED FROM INDUSTRIAL LIGHT STANDS. BOWS WILL BE CONSTRUCTED FROM A RED ALUMINUM MATERIAL. THE TAIL OF THE BOW WILL FORM THE BEGINNING OF THE ACTUAL SPIRAL ON ALL OF THE TREES. THE BOW THEME WILL BE CARRIED OVER TO THE THREE SETS OF COLUMNS WITH THE TAILS BEING WRAPPED AND SECURED BEHIND THE COLUMNS. THERE WILL BE A LARGE WREATH CONSTRUCTED FROM THE FLASHING AND ALUMINUM AND WILL BE FLANKED BY WIRE MESH HOUSES. THE HOUSES WILL BE LIT, AND THE WREATH WILL BE HUNG OVER THE FIREPLACE. ON THE OPPOSITE WALL ON THE TABLE IN FRONT OF THE MIRROR WILL BE A VIGNETTE OF HOUSES MADE FROM THE WIRE MESH AND GLOWING. THE CENTERPIECE TREE WILL FEATURE A CHROMED MOTORIZED TRAIN THAT WILL TRAVEL A SMALL PORTION OF THE SPIRAL TO INCORPORATE A NOD TO THE TRADITIONAL CHRISTMAS CUSTOM. ALL OF THE TREES WILL BE LIT. THE THREE LARGER TREES WILL BE LIT USING LED STRIP LIGHTING. THE SMALLER TREES WILL BE UPLIT WITH A BATTERY OPERATED LIGHT TO KEEP THE PORTABILITY .
