G-Tech, a global provider of lottery services, was in need of a centerpiece for their new corporate headquarters located downtown Providence, Rhode Island. Using an idea from another location, where each client received their own 12-foot flagpole in front of the building, the idea of a globe with the flags around the base was conceived.
The final product is a 12-foot diameter rotating glass globe with marble base. Encircling the globe are over 100 flags, which rotate in the opposite direction of the globe. Lighting was also designed to create a spectacular crystal ball effect; with metal halide floodlights to illuminate the globe and LED spot lights highlighting the flags. The vision we began with is now a local landmark, a source of pride for G-Tech as well as the city of Providence.
