Located on Level Four in the Chihuly Sanctuary, Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center.

The Reflection Room Crystal Sconces are composed of approximately 2,000 crystalline glass forms, which, when amassed within the Reflection Room’s cone-like architectural form, induce an immersive experience. The clear and faceted leaf-like forms reach skyward and toward one another, creating a halo encircling the Reflection Room’s oculus. Soft reflections and dramatic shadows play across the Venetian plaster walls throughout the day and night to imbue a calm and inspiring atmosphere.
