Custom Metal Work for Candela Restaurant


This was one of my first full-scale design jobs. Many years ago, Candela Restaurant (now closed) near Union Square commissioned me to design and fabricate several lighting fixtures, that fit with the restaurant's Gothic aesthetic. I created large, steel chandeliers, which held eight candles, and served as the primary light source for the space (ergo the restaurant's name). I also designed and fabricated candle wall sconces, cocktail tables, bar shelving, railings, and large, outdoor torches.
