The Lighting Display Panel was designed as a lighting control system for an industrial compressor station in rural Pennsylvania. The project was conceived to display sophisticated electronic controls in the glass entry lobby of the industrial facility as a free standing sculpture seen from all sides. The panel components included the lighting switches and one of many neuron controllers that exist throughout the station.
Lighting switches are superimposed on an illuminated plan of the facility, while the neuron controller is mounted just below. Both components are attached asymmetrically on a vertical clear glass pane with polished stainless hardware to compliment the electronics. The wiring is routed inside stainless tubing on the opposite side of the glass and emerges behind the panel to connection points on the components. The glass blade is suspended above the floor with a bolted connection to a single stainless steel angle off to one side.
