Seattle architect and designer, Ryan Smith, combines art, nature, and design to craft his custom lighting creations. The Botanical Series was inspired by the flowers that dot the landscape of the pacific northwest. Lush rhododendron and cherry blossoms, elegant foxglove, columbine and snowdrops as well as a cluster of chartreuse blossoms, inspired by biophilia, reinforces that nature is a constant source of inspiration for Ryan and his team of artisans. His installations may be seen in airports, hospitals, and resorts as well as in residences across the world.
