400 handcrafted brass light fittings

It’s a case of an Englishman in New York, where London-based high-end lighting brand KAIA was specified to supply over 400 of its handcrafted brass light fittings for Halcyon, a luxury residential  development in mid-town Manhattan. Unlike Quentin Crisp in the city, the material’s not out of place in the S Russell Groves’ designed tower that’s crammed with limestone walls, walnut panelling, travertine flooring and bronze detailing. The LIA lights sit elegantly with the brass and Carrera marble features in the bathroom fit-out, giving a restrained Art Deco elegance to the space. PIP’s making the spurious assumption that if you want to live here in the lap of luxury, that rents aren’t going to be cheap – but we’d suggest that you don’t go to Crisp to ask how you’d pay it.
