Stickbulb Duo Brings Edgy Showroom to Queens-Based Studio
At their hybrid studio-workshop-showroom in Long Island City, New York, Stickbulb founders Christopher Beardsley and Russell Greenberg oversee every aspect of the design process—from conception to exhibition. The 10,000-square-foot space, a former steel factory with exposed industrial elements, serves as an edgy foil for the brand’s urbane lighting. Theatrical wool curtains that divvy up the floor plate into functional zones double as backdrops for best sellers like Diamond, a geometric pendant fixture, and the multiprong Bough, distinguished by Y-shape steel connectors. Breaks between the drapes provide sneak peeks of band saws cutting components and pieces being hand-assembled. The company’s LED fixtures are fabricated of timber sourced from sustainably managed forests or reclaimed from structures demolished in the New York area—think decommissioned water towers.
