Atelier Beaute


Soho, New York

The lighting strategy for this cosmetics workshop/store was a combination of strategic placement for minimal ceiling punctuation with visually attractive light elements; creating a functional and yet contemporary space.

Custom lighting details were integrated into the walls, ceiling and floors combining ambient glow with pronounce linear LED elements to create a narrative throughout the space: lines of light draw within the entry corridor welcoming the user and immersing them into this experiential space; flat and even lighting mitigates shadow projections at the main makeup testing areas; and more dramatic and dimmed lighting settings evoke an intimate  and sensual atmosphere in the more private areas like the moody fragrance room.
