Working with Contraxx Furniture, the firm created a replica of a birdhouse for the rustic wood telephone stands in guestroom corridors. "We felt strongly that we needed to honor the authenticity of a birdhouse, and so we wanted to mount it directly on the wall and have it cantilevered, as opposed to designing it with legs sitting on the floor," says dash design's principal and founder David Ashen. "However, items deeper than 4 inches that are cantilevered off a wall must adhere to strict ADA requirements, so it was important for us to design to those rules." Project: Four Seasons Orlando at Walt Disney World Resort Design Firm: Anderson/Miller Manufacturer: Preciosa Anderson/Miller principal Pamela Anderson's goal was to create a property that "conveys the whimsy and magic of the location" by highlighting the nightly fireworks display, one of Disney World's major events. Miller approached Preciosa with the challenge to create something that had the same impact. The pendant includes 250 independent light spheres attached to the fixture's central point. "Upon arrival, the guest is face to face with a crystal rendition of the firework bursts displayed in a three-story vaulted space," she says. August 2015 115
