While in grad school at Pratt (seems like another lifetime), Yabu Pushelberg hired me fulltime as a Junior Designer. YP changed the way I approach, the way I interact, and the way I perceive design. They also train designers to become proficient in all aspects of the design process, including hand renderings, concepting, design development and construction detailing. Below is the first project I worked on with YP, Tiffany & Co. on Wall Street.
Initial Concept Sketch
We collaborated with lighting genius Ingo Maurer on the crystal water droplet light fixtures.
The building is a landmarked bank vault on Wall Street.
