In September, lighting designer Bec Brittain moved her studio into the E.R. Butler headquarters, where she’s been developing new works like this Maxhedron fixture. Made from panels of two-way mirror, it launched last week at the Architectural Digest show; switched on, its internal LED lights are reflected ad infinitum.

Red Hook Design Tour, Part II

ALL PHOTOS SHOT WITH A PENTAX K-01

Last week, armed with the new Marc Newson–designed Pentax K-01 digital camera, we popped in on five different design studios in the Red Hook neighborhood of Brooklyn, taking sneak peeks at work destined both for this past weekend’s Architectural Digest Home Design show and the upcoming New York Design Week. The result is a two-part Red Hook Studio Visit series, the second installation of which debuts today with visits to designers Bec Brittain and Uhuru. Brittain’s studio, where she works alone without the aid of interns or assistants, is inside what can only be called a complex belonging to Rhett Butler of E.R. Butler fame. And while we’d been inside Uhuru’s 10,000-sqft. studio before, we couldn’t come back to Red Hook without a fresh look at what they were up to. Check out the slideshow we put together at right, then follow this link to learn more about the Pentax K-01.
