Kasmin Gallery, New York City
The Kasmin Gallery in New York City was founded by Paul Kasmin, an avid collector of fine art. Promoting both contemporary artists and some of the most influential artists of the 20th century, the architects involved lighting design very early in the stage of developing the space. While natural lighting is a key aspect of the space, flexible artificial track lighting supplements the lighting schemes as the exhibitions change.
