They say when you reach a certain age you’ve officially “grown-up.” At YGD we eschew that theory. There is always room for new growth, room to push back against the ordinary and find the extraordinary seed within. With our newest collection “Against the Grain” we’re expanding our boundaries to explore new shapes and materials in design. This collection focuses on wood designs that go against the traditions of the material. These offerings in geometric and organic shapes, allow the viewer to see this material in a new way and leave them with a sense of wonder.

We're so excited to see a new Yellow Goat Design fixture in the ultimate G.O.A.T's new home tour in Architectural Digest. Serena Williams shows off her massive waterfront property in Miami which includes a trophy room, a movie room, and the ultimate art lovers living room/gallery space. Yellow Goat Design created a custom ring chandelier with sister Venus Williams' world-class design firm V STARR interiors. This cascading waterfall of rings in a golden hue is perfectly suited for the contemporary, airy vibe of Serena's home and we couldn't be honored to have it featured in this space.

This custom project for a confidential client was designed with SBLD Studio. Inspired by our Marbles which can be seen in a customized form in other projects like Bacardi headquarters with IA Architects, or Advent Health with Stantec, this design was a modernist take that reflected balance and movement as the key design elements. Each of the Marble lights was strategically placed between a wooden slated ceiling to create to create an undulating movement that wowed from above or below upon entering the lobby of this multinational company. The resulting effect is a feeling of sleek sophistication.
Well well well, look HUE it is! One of our favorite chandeliers in Interior Design Magazine's Spring Market Tabloid.

The theme of connectivity and coming together as a unit plays a central theme in this workplace piece for Samsung Dallas Headquarters. Detailed in our proposal to design partner HLW International as a "messy stream of light, reflections and color, each element with its own direction and material creating a beautiful stream through the architectural space" this custom "Galaxy Stream" piece was inspired by the ethos of Samsung as well as their signature brand colors and products.
Samsung wanted the fixture to resonate with their brand aesthetic. "Samsung" means 3 stars in Korean. Seeking a balance between an abstract and literal interpretation of this concept, YGD was asked to get creative and we set to work creating options. A variety of space-based options were presented but ultimately the "galaxy" option was the most far out.
The fixture was more sculptural and less dependent on lighting. A digital screen placed directly behind the piece which added the additional design challenge of maintaining negative space to see the screen while also have the sculpture visible from several vantage points.
Safina’s private dining room, within the InterContinental Houston Hotel at Texas Medical Center, showcases YGD’s “Sunlight on a Cloudy Evening” light sculpture. The restaurant pays homage to wellness-driven food and it was important to incorporate saturated colors found in nature within our design to inspire, uplift and enlighten dinner conversations.
Inova Corporate Center in Denver was a hot property that came on the market. Formerly known as Dry Creek Corporate Center, it was purchased and rebranded as Inova Dry Creek. It houses major companies and offer amenities such as a light rail shuttle and rotating food trucks. We worked with Waring Associates to produce one of our signature designs, Trapeze 3.0, for the lobby space. This modern, complex workplace design is a burst of inspiration for employees and customers entering the space.
Our production team putting their skills to good use building PPE face shields for medical professionals. Inspired by Inksmith's tutorial on mask building we printing and producing shields to help protect our most essential workers at this time. If you have production capabilities please take a moment to check out how to help.

701 Carlson is an architecturally engagingly multi-tenant property west of Minneapolis. Adorned with walking trails, gardens, and a lake in the exterior it seems only right that the interior is equally defined by luxury. This custom rod piece for RSP Architects at Carlson Tower is made up of nearly 2500 powder-coated tubes. We built this bit of architectural eye candy to immediately engage workers and clients in the lobby of the building.
The rods are a high shine prismatic metallic which reflects the downlights. An initial prototype was built for this piece to confirm spacing and design specs for RSP.

Named as one of Crain’s Chicago Business’ Best New Event Spaces in 2019, Eleve Ballroom at the Swissotel in Chicago is a top floor event space that overlooks the Chicago riverfront. Custom designed for The Gettys Group, our Prismatic fixture runs the length of the ballroom with five separate elements in the recesses of the ceiling that complement the signature modern style of Swissotel. The downlight through the acrylic fixture adds beautiful rainbows and refraction to the dynamic space.
In the heart of South Beach, this destination hotel is just steps from the white sands of the ocean. Simeone Deary of Chicago recently undertook the recent 50 million dollar renovation to add signature gold and painterly strokes to elevate the beach vibe into a luxury experience. Out Tailfeathers light awaits visitors at the entry of an event space adding elevation and artistic flair to the elegance of the room.

Located in the heart of downtown Nicollet Mall this new multi-res high rise was built to take full advantage of the views, dining, and shopping experiences Minneapolis offers. This custom piece was built to hang in the lobby of the residential tower at 365 Nicollet and is a unique sculpture that reflects the pristine and modern look of the space. Steel rods were welded together and strung with steel cable from mirror composite ceiling discs to create a geometric jumble of shapes that speaks order to chaos.
We’ve got a new website and it is the perfect design-savvy home for our showstopping collections. It’s got lots to offer - improved browsing experience, a plethora of updated projects, downloads, videos and more! Check out a short video demo here or GO SEE IT FOR YOUR SELF!
Anything is PAWSIBLE in New York City, including the opening of a brand new dazzling museum devoted entirely to DOGS! The American Kennel Club's Museum of the Dog has relocated to a prime spot at 101 Park Ave in New York City and Yellow Goat Design has a prominently placed "doggie in the window" for all of NYC to see! Working with Gensler NYC on the design, Yellow Goat and Gensler went through several iterations (including mesh and metal rods) before settling on the iconic wireframe pup you see placed strategically at the forefront of the museum. The dog’s position gazing out of the window represents both the nature of dogs and stands as a beacon welcoming visitors to the museum. The powder coated frame can be lit with LED's to change the color and the mood (just like the empire state building!)
