Presented to the university by Paul Mellon (Yale College Class of 1929), the Yale Center for British Art houses the largest and most comprehensive collection of British art outside the United Kingdom. The collections reflect the development of British art, life, and thought from the Elizabethan period onward.
The Yale Center for British Art was designed by the internationally acclaimed American architect Louis I. Kahn. Located across the street from his first major commission, the Yale University Art Gallery (1953). In 2005 the Center received the prestigious Twenty-five Year Award of the American Institute of Architects.
Grand Light was selected to create exact replications of the existing historic pendant light fixtures. The custom pendant is a spun, tapered aluminum shade with a clear satin etched anodized finish. Each component was custom fabricated insuring the complete historical accuracy.
The spun aluminum lamp assembly was also created with custom tooling.
Fixture body and shade were anodized with a clear etched satin to match the originals. Interior surfaces were painted with a high reflectance white.
