Wood Crating Packaging Service

At Luminaire, larger or more fragile items, such as certain chairs and lighting, are protected in wood crating.

The wood crating at the top of the item's box will be secured with screws, instead of nails, to make access to the box and removal of the item easier.

Upon receiving a crated item, use a Phillips-head ("crosshead") screwdriver to unscrew and remove the wood from the top of the box. Then, simply open the box and pull the item out.

Optical Wand Limited Edition Sculpture

Playful and poetic, Catarina Carreiras’ Optical Wand Limited Edition Sculpture is comprised of a sinuous dome of glass that effortlessly grows from a wooden base. Resembling a butterfly net, the whimsical sculpture acts as a glass cloche to highlight and display food or decor. The intriguing object was designed while participating in a rigorous artistic residence with Fabrica, an innovative art and design research center in Italy, and debuted at the 2011 exhibition “Here & (T)here which was edited by Secondome, a renowned Roman design gallery. The pieces in the series investigate the usual marriage between two essential elements - borosilicate glass and oak wood. In Optical Wand, this hybrid of materials creates a delicate balance of fragility and solidity. Focusing on form rather than function, the whimsical object would be at home sitting quietly on a dining table, trying to catch pieces of food as if they were butterflies.
