Description

The successful partnership between Danish designer Christian Flindt and Louis Poulsen forges ahead with the ambitious LP GRAND system for large rooms.

Asked for big – and got it. Christian Flindt’s illuminated round fixture has a diameter of up to 1.5 metres and bears the prestigious name, LP GRAND. The fixture can be surface mounted on the ceiling or suspended by wires, and has a simple silhouette with soft harmonic lines.

With LP GRAND, Christian Flindt has succeeded in developing an extremely versatile fixture series, with countless combination options. It offers architects, engineers, light designers and installers a light toolbox that can provide general lighting using a single fixture series – while also adding character through a creative approach to the project.

The round ceiling fixtures have the advantage that they can be arranged in any conceivable pattern without disrupting the ceiling surface. They can be placed in rows, formations or patterns, in various sizes and at various heights, only limited by your creativity. LP GRAND can thus be used to provide light that fulfils functional requirements while also creating a unique atmosphere.

The fixture is ideal for hotels, restaurants, schools and offices – locations that require comfortable and energy efficient lighting while also calling for an appealing design. LP GRAND works well in rooms with high or low ceilings, and the fixture family encourages the creation of innovative and inspiring lighting environments.

SOM’s Iconic 270 Park Avenue At Risk of Becoming the Tallest Building Ever to Be Demolished

Just months after plans were announced for a major transformation of Philip Johnson’s AT&T Building at 550 Madison, another iconic midtown Manhattan skyscraper is at risk – and this time, it would mean the demolition of the entire building.

Designed by Natalie de Blois and Gordon Bunshaft of SOM and completed in 1961, 270 Park Avenue (formerly known as the Union Carbide Building) is considered a key example of the International Style in New York City that extended and even improved upon the precedent set by Mies van der Rohe’s Seagram Building.

But after new zoning legislation for the neighborhood was passed last year, the building’s current owner, JPMorgan Chase, has announced plans to raze the 707-foot-tall building in favor of a new, hi-tech supertall replacement. If plans go through, it would be the world’s largest and tallest building ever to be intentionally demolished.

The building, identifiable by its black metal and silver rib facade, sits above the Metro-North railway, and is notable for its second floor lobby and large urban plaza. The building underwent one of the largest office renovations in history in 2012, when it was brought up to LEED-Platinum standards.

But Chase claims that the location is no longer large enough to house their growing workforce, and that in current conditions, 6,000 employees are housed in a building only intended for 3,500. The new building would be reach as tall as 70 stories and would provide an addition 1 million square feet of space, improving company efficiency and allowing for future growth.

Despite being held in high regard by the architecture community, 270 Park was passed up for landmark status in a review of the district prior to the rezoning that saw 12 other buildings in the area added to the list. The neighborhood now contains 50 landmarked structures, including the Seagram Building.

If plans are to go forward, demolition could begin as early as next year, with completion anticipated for 2023.
