Made in Washington #3: Resolute

Let There Be Light: A photo gallery by Colin Bishop

Josh Higgins uses an English wheel to shape an aluminum panel that will become part of a Bomber light fixture at Resolute, a Seattle lighting company founded in 1989 as a division of Manifesto Corporation. Seven riveted panels make up a Bomber lamp, which resembles the engine nacelle of a jet aircraft. At a factory in the Industiral District south of SoDo, Resolute's 17 employees produce lights in metal, glass, paper, fabric and other materials, working primarily with architects and designers on special orders for institutional clients like Starbucks, University Book Store and Pagliacci restaurants.
