Allied Maker’s New Tribeca Showroom is a Lush Garden Oasis
We’ve always known that the founders of the Long Island–based lighting studio Allied Maker had a serious green thumb — after all, we’re still tending to the beautiful pothos they bequeathed to us after Sight Unseen OFFSITE a few years back. But their new, 2,000-square-foot showroom in Tribeca is next level: Designed in collaboration with architect Marshall Shuster of Mesarch Studio, the space — which used to be a dentist’s office — features the whole range of Ryden and Lanette Rizzo’s work, with each vignette punctuated by flower arrangements, plants, and cascading vines courtesy of Buds of Brooklyn (not to mention a truly epic cactus that sits sentry outside the entrance door). The buildout features Corbusier-inspired arched niches, a custom staircase with hardware designed and made in-house, oak floors, terrazzo details, and more. The studio runs their operations out of Glen Cove, Long Island, but we’re pleased to see Allied Maker joining the growing ranks of New York studios opening showrooms in Manhattan, each lending a new voice and destination to our already robust design scene.
Visit Allied Maker at 81 Franklin Street in New York.
