The Owners

Owned and operated by hospitality connoisseurs, Chef Andrew Zimmerman and Emmanuel Nony, Proxi offers a hospitality space that captures guests for their Euro-Asian dishes and astonishing interior.


The Designer

The restaurant was designed by Meyer Davis, a coveted interior designer based in New York, specializing in hotels, restaurants, retail stores, and other impressive spaces like the Assemblage Coworking Space in John Street. We worked directly with Meyer Davis to create custom wall sconces and lighting solutions for this modern restaurant design.


The Interior

Proxi is a large open space filled with dining areas and lounges that offer a remarkable culinary experience. Each section has its cohesive aesthetic that stands out in the materials, colors, and shapes used. It is embellished in rich wooden tables and chairs, burnt orange and dark blue leather upholstered booths, and tall windows to emphasize the open layout.

The Custom Light Fixtures

The matte black dome pendants suspend from beams throughout the central dining space and the private lounges wrapped in jewel tones. The light fixtures were manufactured with a white reflective interior to soften illumination and create a comfortable, elegant space for guests.


Another lighting design we customized with Meyer Davis for Proxi was the wall-mounted swivel pendant exhibiting an aluminum dome in each camel-colored booth and window seating. These custom light fixtures are representations of the modern-industrial aesthetic that charms passers-by. With Proxi’s esteemed architectural elements, anyone’s expectations of a casual restaurant are exceeded and translated into a one-of-a-kind dining experience.
