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