As Beauty products are becoming more scientifically advanced, the artwork for many of these product are designed to reflect this complexity. For Bloomingdale's in Manhattan, Charlotte Tilbury's latest line "Magic Skin Care" brings the magic of science to the fore with chemistry inspired graphics. For our part, we produced delicate cutouts, polished metal risers and plinths as well as custom-made giant product factice, graphics and special lighting. The effect is purely (scientifically) magical.

It's bold, it's black, it's Versace! Promoting the latest Sunglass designs by the famous italian couturier, we added the requisite flair with hi-gloss plinths with 3d lettering, and series of video dsiplays. The effect is sleek and chic, much like the sunglasses.

Not your typical lawn ornaments, these pink flamingos writ large put forth an equally large longing for warm climes. Shipped direct to us from the Diesel headquarters in Italy, we assembled and installed them, along with the "Miami" vinyl graphic at two Diesel locations in Manhattan.

For New York's "Wonder Photo Shop"  on 5th Avenue in the Flat Iron District we were asked to build and install the custom sea foam green tables with the effect of a beam of light painted on the back, tabletop and legs.  To complete the effect, we also added a tinted sea-foam green vinyl to the storefront glass as well as the vinyl signage.

Sunglass Hut's latest window showcases the new GENERAL campaign of Ray Ban's new Aviator sunglasses. Of special note are the faux riveted steel beams and faux-finished concrete plinths. In addition to those pieces, we are very proud of the giant sunglasses we made, generally speaking.

Not just a square on the Monopoly board game, Waterworks is also a high-end luxury bathroom fixtures company! To help them showcase their latest collection at the Architectural Digest Design Show on Pier 60 in Manhattan, we were asked to build an elaborate booth that included lighted 3-d logos, lighted in-set vitrines, lined with their tiles and fixtures as well as other life-sized vignettes.  The photos below show the booth near completion.

The bright city lights was the theme of this year's Bailey House Gala and Auction Fundraiser. Based on an artwork by BC Albury, which was used for the official invitation, Geoff designed the entrance "wow moment"  as a sparkling tribute in lights! Surrounding the 6 back-lit images that spoke to the Bailey House mission, Geoff created a scintillating backdrop using LEDs to spell out "Bailey House" as well as reference the mood of the artwork. Also included in the table decor were Geoff's signature candelabras. Working with the wonderful Bailey House team, Geoff also designed andset upapproximately 400 feet of temporary wall space to showcase art and auction items, all painted in "Shadow 2117-30" purple, which Benjamin Moore was so kind to donate.
