A new spin on simple.

Consolidated Edison--better known as Con Ed--might have a simple name, but the energy company's history and impact is anything but. Con Ed has been serving customers for nearly two centuries, and is currently one of the largest investor-owned energy companies in the U.S.

New lighting in Con Ed's classic lobby at 4 Irving Place in New York City--where its predecessor, the Manhattan Gas Light Company, operated as early as 1854--reinforces both the past and present. The 2400K ribbon light on the underside of the reception desk, mixed with neutral white, square-lens linear fixtures on the lobby walls (both from Acolyte), showcase the historic space and simultaneously provide a fresh face for its current work.

The Takeaway: Ribbon light and squarelens linear fixtures highlight Con Edison's historic lobby and welcome new customers with a modern aesthetic.

1. Ribbon light provides illumination from the underside of the reception desk.

2. Square-lens linear fixtures uplight the lobby wall.
