THE WRIGHT
PHOTOS MAPS STREET VIEW

For architect Andre Kikoski, designing the restaurant in Frank Lloyd Wright’s Guggenheim Museum was a huge stroke of luck—and the biggest challenge of his career up to that point. He tried to imagine how the star architect, who died in 1959, would have designed the space. Wright would have certainly used the most modern materials available. Wherever possible, Kikoski used energy-efficient LEDs. They provide the backlighting for the wall elements made of walnut, and they also highlight the characteristic ceiling canopy. Along the wall, a sweeping banquette upholstered in blue outlines the contour of the room. A bar clad in metal and topped with Corian has a curve as dynamic as the entire room.
