The Venue: Our Studio
Our studio’s 1,800 square feet of open gallery space was designed to be the perfect canvas for pop-up viewing opportunities. Clouds mounted to high ceilings in our lobby area are spaced to allow an uncluttered, 360° view of suspended luminaires, showing off both the fixture and the affixing hardware. Our corridor area is lined on one side with spaces that allow specifiers to view pendants and wall-mounted luminaires up close; the opposite side is designed to showcase recessed fixtures at a range close enough to appreciate the hardware, but roomy enough to allow meaningful observation of light.
We’re conveniently located in the Vermont Center in San Francisco’s Design District. Parking is easy, abundant and free to visitors, and our studio is near major freeway exits.
Though we’re normally “to the trade,” from time-to-time, we invite the greater community of design-loving Bay Area locals to join us for special events like our March 30th party. Don’t miss this opportunity to experience pure elegance at the Archetype studio!
