The architect collaborated with his product-designer daughter Ana Meier, as well as lighting veteran Hervé Descottes, to create the Richard Meier Light collection.
The 12-piece range features sconces, pendants, table and floor lamps – some in simple geometric shapes and others that take cues from portions of the 1984 Pritzker Prize-winner’s projects.
Barcelona I, is shaped like the rectangular portion of the facade above the building’s entrance.
Fire Island I
Meier’s 2013 Fire Island House was used as a reference for the collection. A trio of cuboid floor lamps feature rectangular cut-outs that echo the enclosed portions of the beach-side residence.
Three additional lights form a set called Cycladic. A square and a circular version are sconces, and both are split down the middle so light shines from within one half onto the other.
The lighting is predominantly made from materials that are either white or have some degree of translucency. They vary from sold surface material Corian to glass by WonderGlass.
The architect, who ranked 96th on Dezeen Hot List, is currently working on building projects in the city that include a luxury tower as part of a development overlooking the Hudson River and an uncharacteristic black skyscraper for the other side of Manhattan.
