Argonaut’s San Francisco Office Space Designed with the Metropolis Wall-to-Wall

Jul
24

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]A newly-renovated office calls for freshly-developed LED lighting, which is why David Meckley of Huntsman Architectural Group partnered with us to design a custom fixture for his project. Once a 1960s rock venue in San Francisco, the Avalon Ballroom was recently renovated into Argonaut's new office space for creative advertising. With its history in mind, David Meckley and his team designed an updated workspace with vintage nods and preserved architecture.   For the central workspace, THIN Task Lamps, designed by Oculus' head industrial designer Peter Bristol, were mounted to desks for a more efficient working environment. Over 40 THIN Task Lamps were used to bring minimal, yet functional, lighting to each individual's workspace. David Meckley and the team designed an intricately modern design influenced by the rock n’ roll era, Bauhaus aesthetic, and nautical inspiration. Together, the influences combined seamlessly to form the Metropolis Wall-to-Wall System, adorned in the modern conference room above a large live-edge table. Stunning architectural features such as arched windows and perfectly placed moldings enhance the space's modernity and luxury. Varying shades of gray add to the crisp design while encompassing the modern office aesthetic throughout.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_single_image image="9028" img_size="full" onclick="custom_link" link="http://www.test.juniper-design.com/products/thin-task-lamp/" el_class="stretched_images"][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image="9030" img_size="full" onclick="custom_link" link="http://www.test.juniper-design.com/products/the-metropolis-wall-to-wall/" el_class="stretched_images"][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]The Metropolis Wall-to-Wall is a high-output LED system that can be fitted to any space. Intended to be more than just a dynamic lighting installation, we made sure that the fixture utilized form and function. The Metropolis Collection, as a whole, was made to illuminate areas large and small, with the ability to dim or brighten direct and indirect light. The Metropolis Wall-to-Wall features light modules that stem out from a central matte black beam. The beam mounts to parallel walls and can be sized to fit any length. Since launching this design as an official Juniper fixture, we've developed corner pieces to configure custom shapes, and have released a ceiling-mounted option if walls are not parallel.   Since its release, the custom-made LED lighting system has developed into its own collection, blossoming into the Metropolis Suspension and Metropolis Wall Sconce.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image="9031" img_size="full" onclick="custom_link" link="http://www.test.juniper-design.com/products/thin-task-lamp/" el_class="stretched_images"][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/3"][vc_btn title="Browse the Metropolis Wall-to-Wall" style="flat" shape="square" color="inverse" align="center" button_block="true" link="url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.test.juniper-design.com%2Fproducts%2Fthe-metropolis-wall-to-wall%2F|||"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/3"][vc_btn title="View All Lighting" style="flat" shape="square" color="inverse" align="center" button_block="true" link="url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.test.juniper-design.com%2Fproducts%2F|||"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/3"][vc_btn title="Read More Articles" style="flat" shape="square" color="inverse" align="center" button_block="true" link="url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.test.juniper-design.com%2Fjournal%2F|||"][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Surface Magazine Tasks New York Bartenders to Create Design-Inspired Cocktails

Jul
18

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Surface Magazine tasked a well-established group of New York bartenders to find inspiration for new cocktails in an unlikely place; product design. Creating a new and innovative cocktail is no easy feat. But what separates this group from the everyday bartender is interpreting a visual object into a flavor profile that also delivers its visual inspiration. Among Juniper's own Ground Control Collection are other contemporary objects meant to spark inspiration. From light and playful Bon Bon Boxes by Tina Frey to the deep and mystical Interno by Anna by RabLabs, inspiration was pulled from all corners of design. Pamela Wiznitzer, Creative Director of Seamstress, was given the Ground Control Collection as inspiration for her cocktail. She discusses her inspiration and concept:

“Power is about switching on and off—it’s one extreme or another. For this drink, I decided to nod to old and to modern. The light switches are essentially updating the power source. So I created two similar cocktails served differently. One is hot and one is cold. I envisioned the drinker toggling between to the two to get flavor explosions in their mouth. I used gin’s predecessor, genever, for the old. The modern version has Brooklyn Gin because that is where the company is based. The hot version is a play on the toddy, with citrus and tea garnished elegantly for aromatics. The cold is shaken egg white, which gives it a completely different texture. The concept of tea. The golden color—and edible gold-leaf garnish—match the switches.”

Lodging Discusses Juniper’s Double-Purpose Lighting Solution With Shant Madjarian

Their team spoke to Juniper’s founder and owner, Shant Madjarian, to discuss the practical use of dual-purpose lighting.   Shant shared his in-depth insight of how LED’s can become even more efficient lighting solutions when designed thoughtfully. Dual-purpose lighting exhibits its cost-effectiveness by functioning both as a light source and decorative piece, such as The Wally that adorned Moxy Hotel Times Square's hallways. This playful sign lighting cuts costs as it can also be customized as a room indicator with vinyl decals. In turn, this hallway sign lighting reduces clutter because it cancels other elements, like traditional handle cards when using The Wally as a ‘Do Not Disturb’ indicator for hotel rooms.   Dual-purpose lighting becomes more convenient when it is intended to be portable. Our dimmable M Lamp with a rotatable head, designed by David Irwin, features a slim handle to tastefully carry the aluminum modern lamp. We devised a long-lasting battery life for the M Lamp so users can easily bring it outside or move it in other spaces they wish to use it in.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="4957" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" link="http://www.test.juniper-design.com/products/the-wally/"][vc_column_text]

Elle Decor is an American publication that rings a bell to both design professionals and enthusiasts because it is an exciting platform that covers chic and stylish discoveries. Our THIN System just starred in their Russian edition, Elle Decoration Russia, which establishes our signature collection in their region.   Peter Bristol exclusively designed our wide collection of THIN configurations ranging from wall sconces, suspended fixtures, task lamps, and floor lamps. It made its first public appearance in ICFF in the spring, charming guests for its minimal but powerful linear silhouette. Embraced in solid brass, these fixtures glorify luxurious finishes while exemplifying cost-efficiency through LED lamping.   As the collection grew, our team also ventured beyond modern linear lighting and included geometrical shapes. With figures such as a triangle, rectangle, square, rhombus, and hexagon, we created lighting solutions that adorn all types of residential, commercial, and hospitality spaces.  

WHERE TO FIND JUNIPER LINEAR LIGHTING
