Sotheby's 2016 Designer Showhouse + Auction

ARCHITECTURAL GRILLE recently collaborated with Kenneth Nilson and Christi Rogers of CRD Associates on custom metalwork for the Sotheby's 2016 Designer Showhouse + Auction.

Christi Rogers curated and designed a spectacular room designated as the "Pantry Bar" which incorporated whimsical elements into a "traditional" space making it one of the most popular rooms within the Showhouse! Artwork by Andy Warhol and Keith Haring as well as several fun Kaws pieces along with a specialty bar serving Bourbon and Absinthe libations and DJ spinning tunes for guests.

Architectural Grille fabricated "honeycomb" or hex-shaped shelves from steel with a clear metallic brass powder coat finish - what do you think?

The intricate "Pantry Bar" metalwork structure consisted of "twigs" steel panels finished in the same clear metallic brass powder coat finish as the "honeycomb" hex-shelves - these panels had concealed lights built-into the structure to add shadows onto the bar and overall space adding an extra design dimension to the room.

Head over to Sotheby's Auction House at 1334 York Ave, New York, NY 10021 to see Architectural Grille's custom metalwork in Christi Rogers "Pantry Bar" featuring elements by Kenneth Nilson.
