Glass by Austrian maker Kalmar

Vintage Lighting by Kalmar

Julius Theodor Kalmar, the son of Julius August Kalmar who founded the Austrian company, specialized in manufacturing chandeliers and other fine objects. Using traditional high quality materials like glass and brass, his designs were made with great attention to detail and craftsmanship. Throughout his life, he worked with a succession of prominent avant-garde Viennese architects, artists, and other makers committed to modernist design principles. Kalmar’s last designs in the 1960’s included lighting from his stunning Ice Glass collections.

A Plan to Rebuild Penn Station

Rebuild Penn Station today launched an advertising campaign urging commuters to support the movement to reconstruct the original Pennsylvania Station in New York. The magnificent building, designed by McKim, Mead & White and completed in 1910, was demolished in 1963.

New Jersey Transit trains arriving in the transportation hub feature advertisements(attached) with renderings of the original station in a contemporary context. The ads pose the question: “Wouldn’t you rather arrive here?” LIRR and Amtrak riders will be leafletted with a similar campaign.Sam Turvey, Chair of the Rebuild Penn Station Steering Committee, said, that the committee proposes “rebuilding the station to bring back an architectural masterpiece, while simultaneously improving and updating the station’s functionality.”

Richard Cameron, principal of the Brooklyn design firm Atelier & Co. who is the architectural advisor to and long-time advocate for rebuilding the original station, explains, “The demolition of the original Pennsylvania Station sparked an architectural preservation movement that ultimately protected Grand Central Terminal from destruction in the 1970s. That station is now the second leading tourist destination in New York, and a generator of enormous economic benefits for the city and region. Just as in the example of Grand Central, important historic architecture can and should be adapted to the present without compromising the integrity of the design.”

Latest from Alan Wanzenberg for Remains Lighting

Architect Alan Wanzenberg’s New York based firm has been recognized internationally for design excellence and his new group of fixtures for Remains is in keeping with his deceptively simple and elegant style. The solid brass chandeliers, sconce, and table lamp with Bauhaus influence are complete with almost full-round milk glass shades. The fixtures’ refined proportions and exceptional construction are based on the study of numerous designs for functional lighting, and inspired by many past masters of the classic modern movement.
