Event Court Pendant Lighting and Custom Ceiling

Event Court Pendant Lighting and Custom Ceiling

Fabrication Highlight:

• 11 large pendant lights ranging from 4 to 17 feet in diameter
• Lights contain thousands of LED’s to produce a bright, uniform glow.
• 84 large 8x10 foot panels made of aluminum
• A pair of custom curved lighting trusses measuring 60 feet in length
• Fabricated and installed by Great Lakes Scenic Studios and sister company F&D Scene Changes

One of the crown jewels of the Vaughan Mills recent 87 million dollar expansion is the much anticipated event court. A series of 11 pendant fixtures ranging in size from 16 feet down to 4 feet act as a beacon to the main event area. The lights are framed in aluminum and covered in fabric with red printed acrylic accent panels. One of the challenges of the lights was to ensure a uniform brilliance without dark areas or bright spots. This was achieved through the use and placement of thousands of LED’s. To accentuate the lighting in the area, we also custom built a pair of curved lighting trusses that measured a lengthy 60 feet across.


Behind the pendants lie a total of 84  custom 8 x 10 foot aluminum panels, half of which are powder coated  white, while the other half have a flitch-matched mahogany veneer applied. Aluminum was a good choice for the panels because of it’s light weight and its sturdiness. Because the panels needed to be installed on a curved arc, a special metal sub-structure was constructed as a transition to the the ceiling rafters. The pendant lights, lighting truss and custom panelled backdrop work seamlessly highlighting the event court’s sophisticated style and elegance.

Holt Renfrew Square One Nail Bar

HR Nail Polish Bottle

We had the pleasure of parterning again with our long time client Holt Renfrew to produce massive oversized nail polish bottles for the grand opening of their newest store in Square One. Each piece was hand carved from styrofoam and finished in Holt Renfrew's glossy trademark magenta. Thia unit was over 7' tall by 4' wide and was showcased in their main atrium. When a client calls with a seemingly impossible request, we find a way to make it happen!
