SONNEMAN—A Way of Light Officially Opens First NYC Showroom

Leading Architectural Decorative Lighting Manufacturer is Now Available through the New York Design Center 

SONNEMAN—A Way of Light, the leading U.S. designer and manufacturer of quality architectural decorative lighting, is pleased to announce the opening of its new 7,000-square-foot showroom at the New York Design Center at 200 Lexington Avenue in Manhattan. The brand’s first exclusive showroom in New York City is now open to the design community.

Located on the second floor of the city’s premier destination for fine furnishings, SONNEMAN—A Way of Light’s new showroom serves as a gallery and project design space for an extensive selection of the brand’s product offerings and capabilities. Supporting SONNEMAN’s goal of giving the design community the opportunity to engage and collaborate with the brand, it provides a solution-oriented space for co-creation and innovation.

“New York City has long been the center of the design industry, making it a clear choice for the latest manifestation of our growth,” says Robert Sonneman, Executive Chairman and Chief Creative Officer at SONNEMAN—A Way of Light. “Committed to our extraordinarily bright future, we are continuing to build on our technology-driven design vision with the incredible team that powers our evolution.”

Displaying a comprehensive offering of scalable systems and decorative fixtures, the showroom features extensive collaborative space, including a hands-on “Suspenders Lab” where designers will be able to specify custom configurations alongside on-site SONNEMAN team members. The showroom also has two conference rooms and a dedicated project room for SONNEMAN to work directly with clients, as well as a sales office and food service for events.

Of the collections on display, SONNEMAN—A Way of Light’s recently-released 2019 launch will be prominently featured throughout the space. Intended to show both the depth and diversity of the brand’s latest introductions, the showroom serves as an informational hub for over 350 new additions to the award-winning Suspenders LED system and the nearly infinite options now available for newly introduced scalable Intervals. The showroom will also host a regular rotation of events and activations throughout the year, aimed at increasing and strengthening client relationships.

The New York City showroom is the second of the brand’s stand-alone spaces to open this year, underscoring SONNEMAN’s vision for growth and increased visibility within the architecture and design community. Coupled with the Dallas Market Center showroom — which opened in January and recently acquired more space — and increased representation along the West Coast, SONNEMAN’s Manhattan presence affirms the company’s commitment to expansion.
