LOIS Status: completed, 2015 Location: 98 Avenue C, New York Area: 550 square feet Scope: interiors, custom furniture, custom lighting Owners Nora and Phoebe tapped Michael Groth to develop an innovative and thoughtful environment to match their forward-thinking all-draft wine bar concept. MG culled inspiration from modernist architecture, bauhaus graphics, and turkish textile design to arrive at a space that is at once thoughtprovoking and inviting. Working closely with graphic design studio XXIX, MG integrated branding into the space, from a 3D-printed logo for the menu board to floor-to-ceiling custom wallpaper featuring an elongated logo pattern. MGC also designed custom brass wall lights that playfully echo the geometry of the interior architecture. Lois was featured in Wallpaper City Guide New York for 2015.
THE EDDY Status: completed, 2014 Location: 342 East 6th Street, New York Area: 850 square feet Scope: interiors, custom furniture, custom lighting Owners Brendan and Jason brought on Michael Groth to transform the previous restaurant into a more functional and inviting space. MG exposed brick walls to provide warmth and designed custom built-in banquettes to maximize seating and comfort in the dining room. The old bar was rebuilt from the ground up to create a stunning backdrop for the nightly theater that is the cocktail program at The Eddy. Delicate nickel-plated lighting, designed exclusively for the space, elevates and complements the reclaimed barn wood backdrop. The Eddy has been featured in numerous publications including The New York Times, Wallpaper, and The New Yorker.
