Levy Organization CEO Office Renovation

Classic Office with Magical Surprises
A little known fact about the Levy Restaurants President/CEO was that he loved performing magic tricks to capture the attention of clients. Classic and clever millwork with secret compartments enabled magical gift-giving, such as an illusionary handing out of sports tickets or restaurant vouchers. The design incorporated built-in spaces to feature sports memorabilia and bobble head dolls. Flexible classic seating made the tight space function successfully for intimate meet and greets that were frequent and necessary.

Finding classic Mies van de Rohe furniture in long forgotten storage, the design team had it restored and reupholstered. These essential classics helped provide a small space with a modern, clean aesthetic. Beautiful materials, from steel to marble enhanced the suite’s urban sensibility.
