I designed and built this window for a client who was building a Mid-century, Retro-style bar in their Ohio City home.
Their first bit of direction was to take inspiration from the artist Kandinsky. Knowing this, I visited their home to assess the project and saw their amazing collection of art, the plans for the super-cool bar, and some great wallpaper they planned to use.
Clearly they were not afraid of making a statement. So I forged ahead, designing something we termed “pleasantly janky” and modern for the space. The design incorporates textured and colored translucent and opalescent glass to hold the light and obscure the view.
The panel’s bold presence cannot be denied, but it plays well with the other art in the space and feels right at home.
