The Axis X Vertical Suspension is composed of four angle extrusions that, when combined, form a symmetrical cross with four channels of light. The linear solid bronze or wood body is suspended from a single mounting point, creating a long and elegant fixture. The Axis X Vertical Suspension is the latest addition of the Axis Collection, originally debuted earlier in 2018. The Axis Collection explores the balance of form and light. The original collection, designed by Miren Lasnier at Juniper, draws inspiration from the extruded angles, channels, and tees that proliferated during the 19th-century railway boom and later with construction, buildings, and skyscrapers.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_btn title="Explore More Press Coverage" style="flat" shape="square" color="inverse" align="center" button_block="true" link="url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.juniper-design.com%2Fpress%2F|title:Press%20%26%20Media||"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_btn title="Browse Lighting" style="flat" shape="square" color="inverse" align="center" button_block="true" link="url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.juniper-design.com%2Fproducts%2F|title:Products||"][/vc_column][/vc_row]

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The THIN System evolves further with the THIN Solids Collection this spring season. As an extension of Juniper's collaboration with Peter Bristol, the THIN Solids Collection is inspired by the Platonic Solids, and translates the three-dimensional shapes into illuminated sculptures.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][vc_single_image image="18397" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" link="https://www.juniper-design.com/products/"][vc_empty_space height="16px"][vc_column_text]

“We began the THIN System with a single line, emphasizing minimalism and compact technology. The collection grew into the Multiples and Primaries collections, offering geometric 2D shapes and simple prism silhouettes. The THIN Solids Collection was the next logical evolution for the THIN System, expanding into the 3D Platonic solids.” Juniper Owner & Founder, Shant Madjarian

Design Director Junho Choi Talks About On Restaurant Project

May

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Design Director Junho Choi sat down with us for an exclusive look inside the design process for their newest project, On. The New York-based Korean restaurant features a no-frills approach to design to keep the focus on the restaurant's high-end cuisine. Discover the project here, and learn what Junho Choi has to say about the design below.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="17739" img_size="full" onclick="custom_link" img_link_target="_blank" link="http://https://www.juniper-design.com/2019/05/02/on-restaurant-in-new-york-installs-thin-suspensions"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_column_text]

Who was involved in the project and what roles did they play? What were some common threads between the team members?

Studio Too is comprised of a team of interior designers based in Brooklyn NY. We enjoy the challenges and opportunities of working within existing constructs.  

What was the design inspiration and philosophy behind the space?

We worked with the owner and chef of the restaurant - Hand Hospitality - to create a space that would not distract from the simple, but very sophisticated menu. The hotpot served at O:N exposes the cooking process as each ingredient is added to the bowl of broth cooking in front of you. We translated this by stripping the interior down to it's basic elements. The existing cinderblock walls and concrete floors are exposed while new elements such as the Juniper lighting, stone bench and kitchen walls contrast these rough textures. Each interior element is clear and honest on its own but creates a cohesive space when viewed as a whole.  

What's your favorite area or part of the space?

Our favorite area is the bar and open kitchen area. The long narrow corridor opens up to two self-contained spaces, the existing footprint puts this space as the focal point of the restaurant and provides views into the kitchen.  

Why did you choose Juniper lighting for this restaurant?

We were drawn to Juniper's lighting for its simplicity. Like the rest of the interior, the lights are the most elemental we could find with nothing unnecessary added to the design. When installed the fixture disappears while the warm light creates a great atmosphere for dining.  

How did your personal aesthetic come into play for the project?

We try to be very delicate with our approach to a project and always take inspiration from the existing space. This has a different meaning for each project. For O:N it was important for us to not over design the interior and create a clear line between the new and the existing.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image="17741" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" img_link_target="_blank" link="https://www.juniper-design.com/2019/05/02/on-restaurant-in-new-york-installs-thin-suspensions"][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]Discover Design Director Junho Choi's project here, to learn more about the space, design elements, and to see more photos by Chase Daniel.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_btn title="Learn More About the ON Restaurant" style="flat" shape="square" color="inverse" align="center" button_block="true" link="url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.juniper-design.com%2F2019%2F05%2F02%2Fon-restaurant-in-new-york-installs-thin-suspensions|||"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_btn title="Browse Lighting" style="flat" shape="square" color="inverse" align="center" button_block="true" link="url:https%3A%2F%2Fwww.juniper-design.com%2Fproducts%2F|title:Products||"][/vc_column][/vc_row]

THIN Modular Lighting System Featured in Modern Loft

May

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Dyer Studio Inc. designed the Marshall Wells Building in the Pearl, located in Northwestern Portland. The multi-level penthouse offers clean design elements, including Juniper's own THIN Modular Lighting System to adorn the master bedroom and modern bathroom.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image="17432" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" link="http://www.juniper-design.com/products/thin-surface-mount-vanity-light/"][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]In the master bedroom, natural medium-tone woods line the floors as well as outline windows and are matched through the bedroom's side tables. Grey and white neutrals are utilized through textiles to offer clean and airy aesthetics. To offset the light-to-medium tones in the space, Juniper's THIN Suspension adorns the center of the room above the bed. Its two-connected sections offers the ability to create custom dimensions for this space.

 

The bedroom and bathroom are connected through a divider wall with a window in the top quarter, to let light stream in through the bedroom, but offer the level of privacy a bathroom requires. The master bathroom showcases a modernized square bathtub and shower combination with stainless steel hardware and dark and light grey tilework. Its shared wall with the master bedroom features a light hexagonal tile by Ann Sacks in varying textures for a natural and tranquil aesthetic, complemented by the adjacent wall covered with similar tile in a slender rectangular shape.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="17435" img_size="full" alignment="center" onclick="custom_link" link="http://www.juniper-design.com/products/thin-surface-mount-vanity-light/"][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="17436" img_size="full" onclick="custom_link" link="http://www.juniper-design.com/products/thin-surface-mount-vanity-light/"][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]On opposing sides of the bathroom are dual vanities, complete with medium-toned wood cabinetry by R. Olson Design to bring warmth and more natural texture to the spa-like setting. The central mirrors' pinstripe black frames are contrasted by Juniper's THIN Surface Mount Vanity Lights in Black Oxide finish. Rotatable LED light arrays are adjustable to direct light either toward or away from the user, providing an ideal set up for contemporary vanity lighting.

Staying within the existing plumbing constraints, we rearranged and expanded the bathroom footprint to create a luxurious ensuite. The goal was to bring natural light from the north bedroom windows into the bathroom space, which was previously shut off. A bath for two was a bonus. The new vanity provides an ideal makeup station in addition to generous storage.

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The On Restaurant in New York offers a dining experience centered around induction cooking right at your table. The flow of time and shifts in temperature play pivotal roles in introducing each stage of the meal. From appetizers to main cooking pots, courses are inspired by various regions in Asia. On aims to present the essence of authentic flavors mixed with their own twists to create a truly unique experience. Their mission is to introduce a new genre of food in a creative, yet comforting way. By avoiding the trivial distractions in common trends, they choose to push their culinary skills to new frontiers to create a place that offers appetizing, soulful and innovative food.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_gallery interval="3" images="17740,17739,17736,17737" img_size="full"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="17738" img_size="full" onclick="custom_link" link="https://www.juniper-design.com/products/the-wally/"][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]Designed by the Design Director for Studio Gaia, Junho Choi worked with the restaurant owners to create a new dining experience; one with no frills or trends, but one focused on authenticity, honesty, and flavor.

Within the space is a glass accent wall with dry-erase figure drawings that add an artful focus. Each wooden table and chair set features an induction stovetop for guests to immerse themselves in a unique experience of Korean cuisine. Above the seating area is a row of THIN Suspensions in Satin Nickel to elongate the space. Its 1/2-inch profile keeps the aesthetic of the space modest, while offering a nod to modern industrial design in a luxurious way. Juniper's THIN Lighting System offers magnetic light segments for simple installation and 360° rotatable light after installation. To mark the restaurant's bathrooms, On has installed our Wally in Glossy White finish with custom restroom decals. Wally's are best used as an indicator light to mark occupancy, hotel room numbers, and more. The restaurant, located on Madison Avenue in New York, is the second of the owner's restaurant portfolio.

The floors were patterned black and white, and a large lighting installation brought focus to the center of the dining room.   GCD Interiors updated this eatery with neutral wood floors that are much more subdued and natural, shifting focus from the floor upward and bringing elegance and comfort to the space. Still continuing the restaurant's blue and white signature interior, GCD deepened the wall color, and added rich brass accents for a bright contrast.   With brass linear frames on the wall aligned to each booth, a central THIN Surface Mount Display Light by Juniper splashes the wall with light. The Satin Brass finish matches the wall's brass frame. With the addition of brass accents to the setting, Staks was quickly elevated to an elegant dining space with rich materials and deep colors. The space now offers a high-end brunch location that the quality of the food can already live up to.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The space opens to a large dining room, lined with matching blue booths and white tabletops.

FAQ: What is the Difference Between CRI and CCT?

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]A fixture's CRI and CCT are both very important. But what do these measurements mean? We're here to lay out exactly why they're important, and what you should be aiming for with your lighting.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="17267" img_size="full"][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

CRI (Color Rendering Index) and R9 Value

 

What does it mean?

CRI, or Color Rendering Index, determines how accurately the lighting renders eight pastel colors. If the light renders these colors well, it should render all colors well. CRI is measured from 0-100. Generally, a CRI above 90 is considered great, and a CRI of 95 is best using today's technology. Whenever CRI is considered, the term "R9" follows close behind. This is the value to determine how accurately the light can render a true red. An R9 value of 60 or above is considered good, although the higher the R9, the better.  

Why does it matter?

A high CRI and R9 value is important in the case of depicting colors accurately in cases such as picture lighting for accurate paint colors, vanity lighting for applying makeup, restaurant lighting to depict food in an appetizing way, and retail lighting to show clothing or products in their truest colors.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_single_image image="17268" img_size="full"][vc_empty_space][vc_column_text]

CCT (Correlated Color Temperature)

 

What does it mean?

CCT, or Correlated Color Temperature, determines how amber or blue the light's color is. CCT is measured in Kelvin and can range from 1900K to 7500K. The lower the number, the more amber the light's color is. 1900K is warm enough to be considered equivalent to candlelight. The higher the Kelvin, the bluer the temperature becomes. 5000K is very cool, equivalent to daylight.  

Why does it matter?

Intimate spaces warrant warmer light temperatures, as opposed to productive spaces calling for cooler light temperatures. We recommend restaurants, living rooms, lounges, and bedrooms use 2400K-3000K color temperatures. Office spaces, health-field spaces, and bathrooms can get cooler, with 3000K-4000K temperatures.

Aiming for the highest CRI and R9 value possible determines accurate color rendering, and knowing which color temperature is ideal for your space will help create the right mood. Juniper offers contemporary lighting in a range of color temperatures, all with a 90+ CRI because we know how important these values are for ideal lighting designs.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_btn title="Learn About Juniper" style="flat" shape="square" color="inverse" align="center" button_block="true" link="url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.juniper-design.com%2Fcompany%2F|||"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_btn title="Read More FAQ's" style="flat" shape="square" color="inverse" align="center" button_block="true" link="url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.juniper-design.com%2Ffrequently-asked-questions%2F|||"][/vc_column][/vc_row]

Camp David in Industry City Elevates the Modern Coworking Space

Apr
22

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Camp David, a modern coworking space, resides in Industry City, as neighbors to Juniper. As a well-designed, carefully planned reinvention of the modern-day workplace, Camp David offers a sanctuary for small businesses, creative studios, and remote employees. In many of the office spaces, Camp David has placed THIN Task Lamps as task lighting to illuminate their desks. We spoke with Hannah, Brand Manager, and Robin, Membership Development Manager, to learn more about Camp David's ethos, the design of their space, and their future plans.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_gallery interval="3" images="17413,17410,17416" img_size="full" onclick=""][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_column_text]

What's Camp David's mission?

Camp David's mission is to provide entrepreneurs, freelancers and small businesses with flexible and functional workspace within an aesthetically pleasing environment.  

Tell us about the design of your space.

The space is comprised of 50k sq ft spanning three floors. It was designed by David M. Sullivan, along with our founders Mazdack Rassi and Erez Shternlicht and they drew inspiration from Mies van der Rohe and Charlotte Perriand. There was an enormous focus on preserving the integrity of the existing space and its history while simultaneously creating a beautiful and timeless work environment–– we love the concrete columns and beams, original pine flooring and of course of view of lady liberty at sunset from our courtyard.  

Why did you choose Juniper THIN Task Lamps for the desktops?

Every element of Camp David's design has been carefully considered, from our custom finishes to our task lamps. We selected the Juniper desk lamp because of its streamlined design and practical functionality embodies Camp David's mantra of "less is more". We love supporting independent designers within Industry City's ecosystem. Camp David is an LED only zone!  

What's your experience in the Industry City's campus?

We love acting as nucleus for the campus, where members can take care of business or socialize outside of where they spend most their time. It's inspiring to be surrounded by hundreds of innovative businesses and creative companies and playing a part in the progression of the complex as a whole.  

What are your plans for the future of Camp David?

We have been focusing on providing enriching content through events our members love most –– Breakfast discussions, author talks, happy hours. We are gearing up to expand another 20k sq ft within Industry City and are excited to continue growing our community.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][vc_gallery interval="3" images="17420,17421,17422,17419" img_size="full" onclick=""][vc_empty_space][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_btn title="Explore More Lighting Projects" style="flat" shape="square" color="inverse" align="center" button_block="true" link="url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.juniper-design.com%2Fprojects%2F|||"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_btn title="Read More Articles" style="flat" shape="square" color="inverse" align="center" button_block="true" link="url:http%3A%2F%2Fwww.juniper-design.com%2Fmodern-lighting-blog%2F|||"][/vc_column][/vc_row]
