Design Inspiration

This study revisits the tradition of Maritime art: the brightly lit solid tower of the lighthouse, contrasted with the challenge of the sea vessels’
approach, guided through the hidden dangers that hide beneath the water. Fighting storms, wind and rain in the night, the ships can navigate their way safely through by the light that shows the way. Solas Tron Storm, A Light Through The Storm. A metaphor for human courage and strength in adversity, that is emboldened through the people who care for and support them.
