Project Spotlight: Shooting Stars at One Beacon
03 Dec 2019
One Beacon is a "hard-working" multi-use build located near the top of one of Boston's most desirable neighborhoods, Beacon Hill. The 16th largest skyscraper in Boston, this building houses among others Metlife and Gensler design firm and remains in high demand. Gensler was tasked with revitalizing the lobby spaces including updating the elevator bays with our Shooting Stars fixture to create a "high modern...hospitality feel." We worked with Gensler to create and install a custom version of this design to integrate with the long narrow, slatted wood ceilings of the bay. Formed from clustered crystals, Shooting Stars spans the length of each bay, enveloping viewers in a serene moment of contemplation and beauty that helps set intentions before heading to an office. Jonathan Ginnis of Gensler spoke to us about the project and the piece. Take a moment to watch in the video above.
“In the end, it's quite a talking piece for people that are coming in and out of the building...”
