Chandelier inspired sophistication: Designing the Sophia
- Anna Ham
While the designers create initial sketches with paper, pencil and Pantone markers, they later collaborate with engineers to determine how the insides – motor, wires, receivers, all that mechanics - could work while still maintaining the integrity of the designer’s initial sketch. Once engineers provide their mechanical drawing, Hunter Fan’s design team starts sketching over that. It’s during this process that the design often goes through tweaks and variations. “It’s helpful to have an idea of where the motor is going to be, where the switch housing is going to be, where the blades are going to be and how they’re going to attach to the motor while you’re sketching. It makes it just a little bit easier when you go to the computer and sketch it three dimensional,” said Hunter Designer Christine Holmes.
Polished nickel finishes, premium carved wood blades, beautiful glass with a striking chandelier-inspired light fixture – it’s no wonder the Sophia is part of Hunter’s Masterpiece Collection. It’s sure to be the highlight of any room in your home.
