Floor-to-Ceiling Custom Glass & Stainless Steel Wine Rack and Lighting System

For the restaurant of the Mandarin Orient Hotel in New York’s new AOL Time Warner Center, designer Toni Chi wanted an architectural space that would match the glamour of the lobby while at the same time keeping the focus on the fine food and stunning view of central park. Jaroff Design was hired to develop the floor-to-ceiling wine rack that is the dining room’s main focal piece. In addition to engineering the slender, suspended stainless steel system that holds up to 2,500 bottles in its temperature controlled chamber, we designed an internal custom lighting system that would individually illuminate each bottle, turning the entire back wall into a sparkling bejeweled display for their extensive wine collection. Mison Concept’s ornamental metal fabrication then coordinated each element from the of the structure, to fitting the custom glass with the coordinated lighting fixtures.
