Showcase: Driscoll Babcock Gallery
New York, NY

The Project
The oldest gallery in New York is now the newest gallery in Chelsea, as Driscoll Babcock recently shed its midtown Manhattan address. For their new 5,000 square foot location, they sought out a discrete overhead solution to provide bright, wide-focused light – imbued with color clarity and integrity.

LED Waves' Involvement
LED Specialist Tim Hollinger partnered with the gallery on their new space, recommending the Midtown LED Recessed Light, in neutral white (4000K), for the bulk of this project.
The gallery installed 62 of these down lights. At just over 8 Watts per fixture, that’s under 520 Watts of energy used for a space that, with traditional 50W halogen spots, may have consumed up to 3,100 Watts! And as the spot lighting demands may change with the exhibitions, the light direction of each Midtown can be adjusted manually with a simple tap.
Accenting the rest of the facility are LED PAR lamps and some LED flexible strips.
We were especially pleased that the gallery’s designers liked these spot lights because they’re made exclusively by our crew here in Brooklyn. New York’s newest lighting technology inside New York’s oldest gallery? It’s quite fitting for the city so nice they named it twice.
