The Wright newest restaurant has opened to the public in celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Guggenheim Museum. Named in honor of Frank Lloyd Wright, the Upper East Side destination is located in a modern space designed by architect Andre Kikoski.
The Wright New York City newest restaurant has 1,600 square-foot space features: a curvilinear wall of walnut layered with illuminated fiber-optics; a bar clad in a shimmering skin of innovative custom metalwork and topped in seamless white Corian; a sweeping banquette with vivid blue leather seating backed by illuminated planes of woven grey texture; and a layered ceiling canopy of taut white membrane.
Andre Kikoski Architect’s design philosophy for The Wright engages the heightened sense of procession that is essential to the experience of the Guggenheim – and the dynamic perception of art that it fosters. Surfaces and textures are animated by movement, creating an ever-changing fluid aesthetic that is an essential part of the design.
