Introducing Haussmann for Remains Lighting

Remains Lighting is proud to introduce a new Atelier collection comprised of six fixtures designed by Robert Haussmann in the mid 1960s and now reissued under official license in collaboration with Remains Lighting.

The Swiss design team of Robert Haussmann, and his wife and design partner Trix Haussmann, studied architecture and design with modern masters such as Gerrit Rietveld, Valerio Oligiati, Willy Guhl, and Ernst Gisel. They gained critical acclaim in the 1960s with their interiors and furniture design, combining precise craft in unusual combinations and references to classic forms that unfold to reveal functional qualities. They continue working, exhibiting, and winning awards in design from their studio in Zurich

The Haussmann collection for Remains Lighting can realize many forms and sizes, ranging from the simplest flush-mount to room-size installations. All the elements are fabricated from solid brass bar and are connected and wired discretely in their channels.

LCDQ Legends 2017 | Your True Colors

Another LCDQ Legends comes to an end after a whirlwind three day celebration. We kicked of Legends with a light breakfast in our LA showroom. We were joined by the Commune partners and previewed the new additions to our collaborative atelier line with the Los Angeles-based designers.

The ICAA SoCal co-hosted John Simpson in our showroom for a lecture and book signing. Simpson, the architect behind the Queen’s Gallery in Buckingham Palace and the new architecture school at Notre Dame, illustrated the relevance of classicism in contemporary practice with examples from his prominent commissions and new book about his work. Timothy Corrigan opened the lecture and introduced Mr. Simpson.

 Following the event, we moved from classical architecture and design to a contemporary food trend with a selection of Moon Juices to sample, in true LA fashion.

Our David Hockney inspired window by Philip Gorrivan. In accordance with the True Colors theme, Gorrivan paid “homage to color.”

  Between events, we strolled though LCDQ to admire the decorative windows and displays. We loved to see our antique Caldwell Table Lamp in Zio & Sons‘ garden VIP Lounge as well as a Salem Exterior Wall Lantern in Betsy Burnham‘s two-sided window display.

Fixtures from Tony Duquette by Remains Lighting in artworks by Alan Tanksley and Tony Duquette featured in Color My World, a project by Doug & Gene Meyer in conjunction with Dragonette LTD

Looking forward to seeing everyone next year!

Introducing Plume | Tony Duquette by Remains Lighting

Introducing a new family to the Tony Duquette by Remains Lighting Atelier collection. The Plume Family calls to mind the Rue de la Faisanderie in the 16th arrondissement of Paris, where a pheasant house once stood on the grounds of the Chateau de la Muette and where Tony Duquette decorated the home of his patron, Paul Louis Weiller, the French philanthropist and collector of historic houses.

Remains Out & About in Midtown Manhattan

On a balmy winter day, we left our showroom in the heart of the Flower District to explore midtown Manhattan in hopes of spotting a few of our fixtures in situ.

Refinery Hotel with Heron Exterior Lanterns

Just south of Bryant Park, Heron Exterior Wall Lanterns light the front doors of the Refinery Hotel. Stonehill & Taylor Architects designed the entryway, which stands out against the historic Colony Arcade building.

California Sunbursts in Morgans New York

Located beyond a narrow hallway of the boutique Morgan New York Hotel, two large-scale, oval Tony Duquette California Sunburst Chandeliers illuminate the Reserve Lounge.

Custom Fixtures in Gramercy Park

Custom chandeliers hang from the Georgian inspired lobby of a private residential building. Matching sconces are situated evenly along the wood panelled walls.

Sorensons in 10 Madison Square Park

Across from Madison Square Park, custom Sorenson Exterior Wall Lanterns frame the entrance of 10 Madison Square Park, a new condominium building designed by Alan Wanzenberg. Inside the elegant modern lobby, Sorenson Pendants hang from the coffered ceiling.

RAMSA Fixtures in Walker Zanger

Needless to say, the Walker Zanger showroom contains seemingly endless examples of intricate tile work. In a powder blue bathroom display, two Polished Nickel Fortuna 9 Sconces  by Robert A.M. Stern Architects pop against the pastel tile. Downstairs, Fortuna 5 Sconces and a Cardea 15 Flush Mount shine in a neutral bathroom with white tile and grey marble.

Introducing the Vesta Chandelier

Introducing two new chandeliers to the Remains Lighting Collection, the Vesta 24 Chandelier and the Vesta 48 Chandelier. Long slender arms of precisely cut and hand brazed metal emanating from a center orb with hand-blown glass shades. The Vesta Chandeliers are distinct due to the natural variation in tension with the clean rhythmic shapes and sharp cut angles.

The Art of Engineering & Craft of Metal and Glass Work

All of the lighting fixtures created at Remains begins as an idea– a sketch of the desired product.  The idea is edited and modified until it is ready to move into production. Remains Lighting president, David Calligeros, has nearly 20 years of experience in developing products from a concept sketch to a finished fixture.

This week, David will in explore the relationship between designing and making in a two-part class with the Institute of Classical Architecture and Art. Focusing on custom lighting, the class will present the grammar of traditional metal and glass techniques. The class will provide insight about the methods of production and a basic understanding of how an architect and designer can benefit from the point of view of a maker.
