Graphicatta & Design inc. meticulously applied end-to-end white gold leaf to the interiors of the three giant LOBBY DOMES that are graced with Ai Wei Wei’s 16′ diameter chandeliers.
The seventeen BLU BAR COLUMNS and the iconic STAIRS TO NOWHERE are clad in Graphicatta’s hand-made gold glass wall covering that references the original columns specified by original architect Morris Lapidus.
The Iconic Fontainebleau Resort and Hotel had a major facelift and featured work and installations by various renowned artists and artisans. Graphicatta & Design Inc. installed the white gold giant ceiling domes that house 14’ diameter chandeliers designed by Ai Wei Wei. The leaf installation followed the circumference of the domes making them stunning backdrops for the chandeliers. The gold glass wall covering that clad the “Staircase to Nowhere” as well as 17 lobby columns was originally used by Morris Lapidus. Grphicatta replicated the covering with handmade glass, gold leafed, and then
attached it to a canvas for this historic reproduction.
