Foyer Lighting
Private Apartment House
New York, New York

This shade, chiseled from solid cherry wood (woodworker: Benjamin Marchesoni, Lugano) distributes light evenly across the ceiling, while the slits between the ribs disperse light below. Art works on the walls, and the collection of 1950s furniture in the foyer are evenly lit. The shade's longitudinal form refers to the direction of the space.

Date of Completion: 1998
