Brass and Steel Doors, Metal Railings and Exhibition Display System, 1986 – 1992

Over the course of his relationship with NYC’s Guggenheim Museum, Joseph Jaroff had the opportunity to work as a custom metal contractor on a number of projects for them, beginning with fabricating the decorative metal railings and steel doors and frames for the first major renovations to the original Frank Lloyd Wright landmark. Next he designed a custom steel-core exhibition system that was used to show works from their renowned German Expressionism collection. Finally, for the Gwathmey Siegel addition to the building that followed, Mison Concepts fabricated these complex Art Deco-style side doors out of brass and brushed stainless-steel for art transportation and staff entry.
