In the heart of Chicago’s downtown “Loop”, within the iconic Franklin Building is the newly renovated Tishman Speyer office space on the 44th floor. The specifying firm, Garnett Architects, reached out to LightArt hoping to create a 48ft long decorative ceiling installation and they were inspired by a past project of suspended Chroma pendants at the Sheraton Hotel Lobby, in Austin, Texas.
A lovely surprise occurred on this project, a nod to my past employer and my relationship building/retaining, I noticed in photos provided to me of the on-site installation, that a very familiar 2-story vertical garden system was being installed. I reached out to my friend and old colleague at SageGreenLife and sure enough he confirmed that we were both working on the same project. Through this connection I was able to gain professional photos of the renovated office space at no cost to LightArt studio. Not to mention, the success and elation I felt when I discovered this project featured by Interior Design Magazine, and highlighted on their social media channels.
During this project a learned a great deal about specifier needs, communication, Chroma as a material and manufacturing challenges. I retained information from this project that later informed future Chroma projects I managed and led to my creation of a slide + video presentation tool at LightArt’s biannual Sales Conference.
* I have attached the educational Chroma presentation slides I created, below the Project Review PDF for added interest. You can also explore the "Desert Rain" project under my Portfolio tab, which is an extension of information shown in a later project I completed while at LightArt. *
