Lumetta’s Pendant Lighting Artfully Showers 10 South LaSalle Lobby
10 South LaSalle, a 502 ft. tall, 37-floor skyscraper is in the LaSalle Street financial district of Chicago, Illinois. The modern high rise, completed by Moriyama & Teshima Architects in 1989, is constructed of steel, glass, and concrete.
In front of the entrance, the newer structure is recessed behind an old building’s facade, forming a hollowed-out space where the contrasting old and new parts are visible together. It is considered a perfect example of “facadism” and is currently utilized for upscale business offices.
During a recent modernization and renovation, a wide variety of new amenities were added including a main lobby consisting of seating areas, café tables, billiards, and other luxury accommodations.
Lumetta was selected by Studio3 Design, Inc. to actualize the lighting renovation and illuminate the main lobby with stylish high-end lighting that would complement the shapes and colors within the lobby’s space.
The uniquely fabricated layout and design of pendants and the juxtaposition of the 48” Shadow Streamline Pendant with the billiards table were executed brilliantly. The size and shape of the luminaire and the double layer of shades complemented the table, while the choice of pendant colors overall were coordinated to integrate seamlessly into the interior design.
Also included in the lobby installation were Lumetta’s Cylinder Pendants in 20” and 27” that hang majestically throughout the environment, with 48” and 60“ Drum Pendants placed respectively within. A 6” x 23” Telescope Pendant and a 13” Chopstix Pendant also were installed within the lobby to the delight of the client.
