AQ, San Francisco
Matt Semmelhack found us and we began a collaboration that spanned four changes each season.
There are two levels of lighting in the space, the foundation lights like the custom booth lights, pillar sconces & kitchen lighting that remains intact all year round. The second level of lighting, the main dining room pendants and the cluster in the I-Beam frame changes seasonally.
The foundation lights were custom designed and built using not only modern parts, but we integrated antique shades throughout to work with the amazing framework of the space and to play up the building's heritage.
For fall, the first season, we made a large cluster of vintage & antique heating lamps and old chicken feeders.
Winter brought severe branches without leaves and lots of white lights highlighting the space.
Spring had an upside down bouquet of colored hand blown glass on green cords.
Summer came with oak branches from our own property which turned into a 'shade tree' arching over the space with vintage shell lanterns hanging from the branches.
