Aglo Systems was commissioned to engineer and manufacture the Grand Ballroom Flower Pendants and several other custom built pieces for Crown Perth, in collaboration with Bates Smart and Electrolight. Aglo Custom team developed the original Bates Smart concept into 3m and 6m wide versions. A combination of stainless steel and aluminium was used in the main structure to reduce weight load. As a further weight reducing method, rotomould spheres rather than glass were used for the diffusers. After preparing shop drawings, a full size 6m prototype was constructed to test the assembly and operation.
For stability of the design, the luminaire had to be assembled and tested at ground level before being lifted into position as a complete piece. With such a delicate structure, even cable reticulation posed difficulties with over 100 separate connections to be made during assembly. 45 units were manufactured and delivered, Aglo Custom team oversaw the assembly and installation onsite, included the large structures being hoisted 8m into the air to the ceiling creating a spectacular view.
