Rockefeller Plaza, New York: The Metropolitan Museum of Art Christmas



New York

Project type:
Production, Installation

We worked with concept designer Kate Henderson on this huge installation at The Met, Rockefeller Plaza, in NYC.

Inspired by the Met’s tradition of creating a new snowflake ornament every Christmas for more than 40 years, Kate took the detail of single snowflake and turned it into a huge, multi-layered sculpture. Each of these unique sculptural pieces was based on a retrospective tree ornament made between 1971- 1982.

The snowflakes were fabricated in three different finishes: brushed hand polished steel, laser-etched steel, and snow-white powder coated steel. Set against a backdrop of falling snowflakes inside the store, this display looked really impressive from inside as well as outside.

This was a bold solution that emphatically said ‘Christmas!’ to NYC’s shoppers and we thoroughly enjoyed working on this project.
