NEW YORK, NY
Visitors to New York’s legendary Rockefeller Center are introduced to the concept of ascent by a helical spiral stairway in a three-level atrium. Suspended overlapping plaster walls soar upward along the stair’s profile and appear to float, backlit by recessed lighting. The centerpiece is a cascading crystal chandelier comprised of 600 strands of 15,000 prismatic crystals, based on an Art Deco design from the 1930’s by Swarovski, accentuated by terrazzo stair treads that progress in gradations from dark to light, subtly expressing the journey from ground to sky.
