New, 1 comment

Today's New York Daily News runs a in-depth profile of illumination genius Hervé Descottes, the Frenchman who designs lighting for Gehry and Nouvel, among others. "No one other than Con Ed has lit more of New York," reports Jason Sheftell, citing other projects within Descottes's oeuvre: the Columbus Circle water fountain, Jean-George Vongerichten restos, and Andre Balazs's The Standard New York hotel (shown).
