OPERA SHOP, THE MET, NEW YORK

Date: 2008
Client: The Met
Location: Lincoln Center, New York

Overview:
Renovation of the Metropolitan Opera gift shop at Lincoln Center, New York.
Part of the revitalization of the MET under the direction of general manager Peter Gelb to bring "openness and theatricality" to the opera experience.
A sparkling opera set - the view of the shop from the lobby is through a monumental bronze proscenium.
The main display fixture curves around as a reference to the grand lobby stair, showcasing pieces while visitors browse at inter-missionary periods between shows.
