Prism Installation

Designer: Inés Esnal’s

Location: NYC


Artist and architect Inés Esnal’s Prism installation uses colorful elastic rope to form triangular spaces that filter light into the lobby of a new residential building in New York.

The installation’s vivid colors and optical illusions provide a bold contrast to the concrete walls.



Description :

All original architecture was carefully preserved and restored to be new once again. Upon entering the restaurant, an open, yet highly systematic layout was put into place. The green and metal mesh backs of long banquettes become a hallway leading new patrons to the host area. Textured velvets outfit the furniture, while galleries of framed photographs line the brick walls. Back-lit wall shelves glow in the evenings and feature locally blown glass trinkets, that playfully complement the purple checked wallcovering.

The original cobblestone floor peeks through at times, as it makes an entrance between washed oak wood planks. Here, Debuut did a smart job of mixing old with new, while maintaining the integrity of the establishment’s past.
