A Spotlight of a Different Kind

While our daily work focuses on creating custom lighting and furnishings for our clients, we thought we’d take a different approach today, and create a different sort of spotlight if you will.

Today, we’ll focus our attention on those who make it happen everyday: the talent here at ADG.

At times we all review and look at lighting as an item you pluck off the shelf. At times we look at furniture as that item that you see when you walk into the showroom. It is selected, spec’d, and delivered to the customer, and we wait for the relaxed and wonderful smile that comes from the customer’s amazement.

“Wow, my design professional helped with that selection and it looks wonderful!” she says. However, what happens when the specialty side for designers, homeowners and hoteliers alike is customized? Teams like Architectural Detail Group and ADG Lighting take the pen and calipers in hand and begin the design process — because they hold the control with the fabrication that makes the process extra special.

What about the leap of faith to custom design and manufactured lighting and architectural furnishings? We all know the design studio of Charles and Ray Eames and furniture by the iconic Mies van der Rohe.

If you’ve seen the lighting and ornament work by Gerald Olesker and his team at ADG Eco Lighting, you know it is a sight to see. Many have likened their work to the works of Edward F. Caldwell & Co.

Here at ADG, we take pride in our work and craftsmanship. Our significant designs and inspired collections are developed from Olesker working with some of the finest and most prominent architects, designers and building owners around the globe. His works have been placed into homes designed by Marc Appleton, Gwathmey Siegel, and Robert Stern’s office.

Inspired by Michael Berman, Olesker got into the metal furniture industry when Michael suggested to Gerald that he make the MBL Shearboun table for himself. Olesker then began to fulfill orders for Berman and other designers in town for metal furniture. Each fixture and piece of furniture initially comes in a form developed by Olesker within a specific scope for the project. Certainly while designs are repeated, many of the original inspirations remain some of the most published and seen homes and projects today.

Diversity is key component of Olesker’s work. The above chandelier was a requested piece, developed for a homeowner and her prominent husband in the banking industry. Read up on what ADG customers have had to say about our work, and you’ll begin to see why Olesker and ADG are sought after in the industry. 

The below modern fixture was developed for a hospital in New Orleans. Joey Genarro, the industrial designer in charge of production at ADG, developed this fixture. It is quite the hit! ADG Lighting has had many orders for this and variations of this fixture. Eight phases of the hospital currently display this timeless piece.

Contrasting designs and fixtures are key to the successful following and modest studio approach by Olesker and Genarro. The Mid Century Mixx above and the classical iron light and copper lantern are additional examples of the pairings by ADG Lighting.

Where can designers find diversity in lighting and furniture? Look no further. With Olesker’s formal education degree in Architecture and Genarro’s applied hands-on training in Industrial Design, this duo is the 21st-century of teams like Cadwell and Lossberg, Charles and Ray Eames, and the talents of Taliesen.
