Barneys New York

Barneys New York, one of the city’s most iconic clothing retailers, just opened a new flagship location in a familiar spot. It is located in the Chelsea neighborhood on 7th Avenue between 16th and 17th street, marking the return of the luxury retail store to the same block on which the company was founded in 1923. 

Design Strategies and Intex formed the ceiling light coves, now installed in all Barneys store redesigns in North America. Molded out of GFRG, each light cove is unique and offers aesthetically pleasing light refraction that creates a calm and tranquil environment with a subtle inordinate luxury.

Steinway Hall

Steinway Hall

Located at the heart of Midtown Manhattan, Steinway & Sons has opened its new flagship: Steinway Hall. A state-of-the-art retail and performance space, the showroom has already become a cultural destination where artists and ideas meet, where collaborations are born between musicians and instruments that make our world a more beautiful place. An artistic centerpiece of the new Steinway Hall is an installation by American artist Spencer Finch. Titled Newton’s Theory of Color and Music (The Goldberg Variations), the work is an interpretation of Johann Sebastian Bach’s “Goldberg Variations” that explores the intersection of music, color, and emotion through light.
