    Exquisite Lighting by Apparatus Studio // New York.

    26th March

    Holy guacamole! Apparatus Studio’s lighting is absolutely ridiculous. As in ridiculously amazing. If I may paraphrase someone dear to my heart – “give me brass, black and white and I’ll drop my pants any-day”. My sentiments exactly!

Handsome style and careful design create that elusive sense of balance between vintage and contemporary aesthetic.

The Munich bar interior, designed by Fabian A. Wagner of Buero Wagner with Andreas Kreft, pays tribute to the local Bavarian culture and craftsmanship.
