ANGELO GORDON HEADQUARTERS 23RD FLOOR RENOVATION

New York, NY

The lighting for this investment firm’s expansion is tech-forward and encourages an appealing, collaborative environment for its youthful staff.

An open ceiling maximizes the room height, leading us to select an LED pendant system as the primary lighting. Customizable branching arms allowed us to create dynamic ceiling layouts and provide even illumination. The black armatures, seen against the white ceiling, require few supports and appear to float in the space.

The use of a Power-over-Ethernet protocol allows for flexibility.  Output, dimming, and diagnostics are easily controlled and monitored for energy conservation.

Two rows of LED tapes with grazing optics backlight the black screen wall that greets visitors.

A custom LED pendant mirrors the table shape in the main conference room, creating a unique gathering space.

Decorative pendants mark counters and tables, contrasting with the branching pendants weaving through the space.

The firm uses the successful design as a recruitment tool.
