Visited Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn's newest downtown gallery
Salon 94 Bowery @ 243 Bowery, NYC
and it's stunning!!!
Designed by architect Raphael Viñoly, the gallery is
spare, clean, and contemporary ......
avoiding all unnecessary "design gimmicks"!!!
Due to the building's narrow width,
Viñoly had to dig deep into the basement,
creating a steep staircase, intrinsic to the design.
The design of the staircase's handrail is brilliant!!!
Instead of attaching the railing to the wall,
Viñoly has carved it into the wall,
adding a deep curve that is molded to your hand!!!
Becoming a magnificent minimal wall sculpture,
the "interior rail" is a perfect design element!!!
