Custom Manufacturing by Amuneal: Hospitality



The Wright Restaurant

Client:   Peterson Gellar Spurge, Inc.

Design: Andre Kikoski Architect

Location: New York, New York

Amuneal was excited and honored to collaborate with Andre Kikowski Architect and PGS Millwork on the historic renovation of the Wright Restaurant at New York's Guggenheim Museum. To deliver the Architect's vision, we created a series of seamless, hand-textured stainless steel features that created and defined volumes in this dynamic space.

The restaurant's 30' long bar was fabricated by welding several sheets of stainless steel together, allowing us to deliver this feature as a single monolithic structure. The geometry of these custom legs is defined by the compound tapering shape that creates a structurally sound, but visually light element within the space.

Reunion Tower

Client: Woodbine Development

Design: Gensler & Amuneal Manufacturing Corp.

Location: Dallas, Texas

This circular lounge was designed as part of the recent renovation to Dallas’ Reunion Tower. This project reflects a balance of precision engineering, artistic sensibility, and exacting craftsmanship-- all supported, encouraged and celebrated by both the designer and the client. Inspired by the building’s geodesic dome, we fabricated the cloud-like clusters of pyramids in many different sizes to compose both positive and negative spaces across the surface of the ceiling installation . An internal LED system along with LCD screen integrations allowed lighting and video to become an integral part of the composition creating an ever-changing atmosphere in the lounge

The Standard Hotel

Client: Purchasing Associates

Design: Roman + Williams

Location: New York, New York

Roman + Williams designed the Standard Hotel to be like no other. From the custom furniture in the guest rooms to the deftly detailed architectural features, Amuneal was a proud collaborator to help them realize their vision. A great example of this collaborative spirit is the monumental door which was designed as the entrance to the rooftop night club.  Originally envisioned as a cast bronze door, we reengineered its construction to yield the same look, but at a much lower cost. With a center millwork core, we clad both faces of the door with water-jet cut bronze in three different thicknesses. The result is a stunning architectural element, true to the original design intent, while remaining within the budget.

The Ace Hotel

Client: Ace Hotel

Design: Roman + Williams

Location: New York, New York

Inspired by a 1930s Parisian blown glass exit sign, Roman + Williams designed these sconces to be both corridor lighting and room signage for the new Ace Hotel in New York City. Unable to find a source for the lighting that would work within their budget, they asked us to find an approach that would maintain their intent but significantly reduce the costs. Drawing on our background and experience in blown glass and mold design, we developed a method to produce this triangulated form that greatly reduced the complexity of the process and helped to bring the costs down to work within their budget. In the end, we delivered nearly 350, UL labeled light fixtures, individually numbered for each room.

Each of the four chandeliers is a focal point in the industrial inspired lobby-lounge of the hotel. The structure and light fixture itself is fabricated from hot rolled steel, plumbing fittings, and custom machined components. Suspended in the 30” diameter ring is a 1.25”-thick cast glass lens weighing over 100 lbs. Each lens was custom cast to a slight honey hue with small, entrapped air inclusions. Placing several decommissioned telescope lenses on the cast glass surface further enhanced the chandeliers’ optics. These optical lenses, both convex and concave, help to refract the light with unexpected and intriguing effect.

Park Hyatt Washington DC

Client: Beletz Brothers Glass

Design: Tony Chi & Associates & Amanda Weil Studio

Location: Washington, DC

As a feature for the main public spaces of this high-end property, Amuneal worked with our client and the designer to engineer, fabricate and install several dramatic architectural elements. Each element combined specialty materials, expert craftsmanship and a highly engineered approach to ensure the clean, crisp minimal details essential to the Designer’s vision. The dynamic 12" tall glass art cubes feature base structures of ½'”-inch thick mirror polished stainless steel with an integral support structure that bolsters each of the 300 lb. panels. The base structure was fabricated from individual stainless steel plates weighing up to 1,000 lbs. a piece. Each corner was machined with a 45-degree miter to provide a clean, tight seaming detail during installation. Each box incorporated a 12’ tall operable glass door and mirror-polished stainless floor and ceiling structures.

The Royalton Hotel

Client: Roman & Williams

Design: Roman & Williams

Location: New York, New York

The project was an excellent collaboration, forcing us to expand our knowledge and to develop new specialty processes--including a technique for welding steel to brass.  After several weeks of dialogue on material, finishes and textures, we achieved the final look for each element in the space. Fabricated over solid substrates, each feature was made of dozens of steel and bronze patches in a variety of finishes. The patches were welded and fastened together to create a texture and patina adding richness to space

Soho House Chicago

Client: Soho House

Design: Amuneal Manufacturing Corp

Location: Chicago, Illinois

For this project, we fabricated and installed a series of Amuneal's own Thornburg Shelving Systems. The end result is a continuous line of shelving that acts as wall, screen, and display areas all in one piece. The cafe tables are made from reclaimed porcelain vintage sink-bases that have been given new life and paired with solid oak millwork tops and steel and oak bottoms.

W Hotel Screen 

Client: W hotel

Design: Structuretone

Location: New York, New York

Working directly with the W Hotel's design team, we developed these decorative screen walls and operable doors for their luxury suites. The dynamic pattern was laser-cut from steel before being powder-coated. For privacy, a layer of obscured glass was added to the pivot doors leading to the bedroom.

Orrick Feature Walls

Client: J.R. McWilliams Construction Management

Design: Studios Architecture

Location: New York, New York

Amuneal worked with the designer and the client to engineer, fabricate and install a series of sculptural walls that became defining elements in the space. We began the process with a simple phone call and a description of the feature; several months later and fully installed, they were exactly as we imagined. We created and installed 10 individual feature walls fabricated from either podwercoated aluminum or a combination of steel and white oak. The faceted metal walls used a complex geometric model to create a series of unique folded aluminum forms. The more than 62 panels, at just under 10 feet tall, were suspended from a specially designed and concealed support structure. The undulating wood walls, which ranged up to nearly 50 feet in length, used a highly engineered laser cut steel structure to support over three miles of white oak.

Amuneal was given the task of manufacturing these monumental screens and door features for the Hilton Bonnet Creek, one of the busiest and most successful Hilton locations in the U.S.  The “U” shaped screens are made from steel and translucent acrylic and house internal lighting sources.

Soho House New York City

Client: Soho House

Design: Amuneal Manufacturing

Location: New York, New York

Amuneal partnered with Soho House to create an eclectic assortment of tables to make their private dining room more accessible for this member's only Manhattan hotel.

Working together, we created six different styles of tables, all incorporating dynamic custom wood bases, legs and hand-polished finishes. The focal point of the dining room is a dramatic, high-gloss lacquered communal table, that sets the style and mood for this primarily monochromatic interior. This dynamic table combines custom turned legs with a hand-finished high gloss lacquer.
