Light It Up!

Whether at home or at work, lighting is an important part of every décor.

The right lighting can make a difference in how your furniture looks (especially that cool custom metal furniture!) by casting different levels of light and color, how comfortable the room is for reading or conversation, and how the atmosphere of the room feels.

Without the right lighting, your space can feel too bright, too dark, or uninspired. But with a little custom metal fabrication, NYC homes and businesses alike can have those unique metal products that create just the right finishing touches no matter where you need them.

 True, usually we’re busy at TMRnyc making our super manly belt buckle, The RetroCard Belt Buckle; or our man-cave fave, The Pipe Bomb Bar. Or we’re off installing hanging window baskets or a custom sign or … you get the picture.

But we dig getting our electrical groove on with some lighting fabrication. And yes, it’s all UL-listed and all that good stuff. New York diners can catch glimpses of some of our handiwork over at Colicchio & Sons, where we installed some super cool custom lighting to make their oven hood glow like a burning ember.

Whether you need a massive lighting installation for your customized, wood-burning, industrial oven, or you just want some kickin’ sconces for your patio, TMRnyc has your lighting needs covered. Plus, we can make it all mesh and match with the rest of your custom metal furniture, because we’re cool like that.

Custom Metal Fabrication for Commercial Spaces

When you run just about any kind of business in New York City, space is at a premium.

For our clients, that usually means they want unique metal products that are not only going to set their spaces a cut above the competition from a design perspective, but that those products need to be both stylish and highly functional. Case in point: Colicchio & Sons at 15th street and 10th avenue.

We’ve done a couple of projects with Top Chef’s Tom Colicchio, and both were about maximum impact in minimum space. The first piece, paneling for the wood-burning oven’s vent hood, was all about ambiance and style through custom metal fabrication.

NYC diners can check out the fiery orange glow of the oven hood while dining on some of Colicchio’s fine offerings such as their delectable truffle celeriac agnolotti and verjus glazed rutabaga or their 30-day aged Niman ranch sirloin farro, crispy salsify and Castelfranco radicchio.

Utilizing just the space covering the vent hood, we were able to add visual warmth to the open kitchen without detracting from the style of the dining room itself.

The wood-burning oven brought about the need for another piece of custom metal work. With space at a NYC premium, where were they to store the wood? We solved this dilemma with a bold focal element that’s as functional as it is stylish.

We crafted two 9-foot-tall by 10-foot-wide blackened steel racks to house the firewood, and in doing so we created a dramatic visual element, a natural room separator, and a functional shelving solution, all while complementing the aesthetics of the restaurant and maintaining the size of the dining space. 

Do you have a unique need for shelving, storage, or functional furnishings in your commercial space? Connect with us to see how we can take your design, and your space, to the next level.

The fuel for the fire has to be stored somewhere. These two 9′ tall x 10′ wide racks should do the job. Fabricated out of 3/8″ blackened steel plate, these racks can hold enough wood to incinerate just about anything.

In the never ending battle to provide differentiated food in New York City, Top Chef’s Tom Colicchio is certainly victorious. His new establishment, Colicchio and Sons, offers an assorted menu that ranges from braised rabbit leg with cheddar grits, poached egg, and soffrito to potatoes in a sawtooth ale broth. One way for Colicchio to compliment his eclectic methods of preparing proteins and starches is to add a wood-burning oven. We were responsible for fabricating and installing the paneling that surrounds the oven’s hood-vent. The paneling was fabricated out of 10′ x 3/8′ steel plate and are an impressive 9″ tall by 5″ wide. The fiery orange glow around the outside is a combination of interior lighting and pressed mica panelite. The installation was completed in only one day but will be provide Colicchio and Son’s with an aesthetic appeal for a long time to come.
