Huys Lighting by Frederik Molenschot

Dutch sculptural lighting designer Frederik Molenschot has created a series of lit structures made from cast bronze for Huys (pronounced ‘house’), a new Park Ave residential building in Manhattan, New York. The never before seen structures were unveiled in a new exhibit on the ground floor of the project, a 1917 neoclassical building.

Molenschot is part of an all Dutch design team – including landscape architect Piet Oudolf (who’s done work for the High Line and Battery Park) and renowned interior designer Piet Boon – working on Huys which is set to open next year.

Kroonenberg Groep, one of the largest real estate developers in the Netherlands, is behind Huys and brought together the various designers to showcase Dutch design. Frederik is designing a large chandelier that will be featured in the lobby of the building – the exhibit features a scaled down version of it in an exhibition space, along with other original pieces.

Currently open to the public and clearly visible from the street, the exhibition space occupies a larger corner section of Huys’ groundfloor. Molenschot is also designing the brass door numbers that will be featured on every floor of the building.
