Click here to read Jason Farago’s New York Times piece on Rachel Whiteread’s haunting show at the National Gallery of Art. The review is accompanied by a number of excellent Justin T. Gellerson photos that demonstrate the importance of lighting for mood, tone, and meaning - especially when working with a muted palette.

Weatherproof your workout at The St. James (and look up!)

The St. James Sports and Wellness Complex Grand Opening is fast approaching, and we couldn't be more excited. I grabbed a sneak peak of this stunning, upscale facility; even amid the flurry of last-minute preparations, the daylit design of this building inspires calm and confidence. Super Sky's skylights allow for a flood of visual fresh air, giving members the natural-light benefits of exercising outdoors without the constraints of unpredictable weather. As always, Super Sky provides a top-quality daylighting system that is perfectly at home in this best-in-class facility.  I'm telling you, it's gorgeous enough to inspire me to work out... or at least visit the spa.

RC Lighting: DRX5 soon to be ETL listed

Hot off the press and available from RC Lighting at the end of Summer 2018: DRX5 may resemble its predecessor DR7, but it's a smaller, lighter and more powerful recessed luminaire.

The Goal? LEED Gold.

LITELAB and LEED GOLD: Custom LED Fixtures in Historic Staten Island Museum

Lighting designer Kyle Chepulis of the Technical Artistry team worked with Litelab to transform a historic Snug Harbor retired sailors' dormitory, built in 1879, into a modern, cozy, and energy-efficient gallery of nautical artifacts. Check out this story from the SORAA lamp website on how their LED lamps and Litelab's custom fixtures helped this museum earn its LEED certification.
