In 2010, Jessica collaborated with interior designer Leilani Arita, architect Andrea Steele and Adam Pritzker to create the interiors for what was then the first Union Square office of start-up General Assembly.
The bold statement in the space was an ambitious custom designed lighting system that was inspired by all of the pipes that run through out industrial spaces in NYC.
In addition to our custom lighting design, which has been recreated in all of their subsequent spaces, we sourced up-and-coming designers to create statement pieces for the space that have become part of General Assembly's signature aesthetic. From concrete pendants to experimentation with fluorescents, the lighting is now a trademark of their minimal clean workspaces.
We worked closely with Swiss furniture designer Vitra to create the programming of furniture, complete with a custom table composed of salvaged barn lumber for the shared workspace -- pictured above.
