Blue Green Works Debuts Beachy Lighting Series
Pent-up creativity launched many new ventures in 2020. Case in point: Manhattan firm Blue Green Works, helmed by creative director Peter B. Staples (previously of Apparatus Studio and The Future Perfect) with partners James McAvey and Dan Persechini. For the trio’s inaugural lighting series, Palm, the beachy yet modernist Pines hamlet on Long Island’s Fire Island acted as muse. “We were thinking about places of escape and refuge and things that make us happy: palm trees, beachgrass, flower arrangements,” Staples says. The flared floor lamp, pendant fixture, and sconce combine LEDs, steel or brass metalwork, and hand-rolled, kiln-slumped glass available in six shades, including Light Amber, Pigeon Grey, and Lily Pad Green.
