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.
