about the project

Dean & Deluca, an American chain of upscale grocery stores, commissioned BR Design to curate their 10,000-square-foot Manhattan corporate office. Formerly a New York based retailer, the company had grown with stores all across the US, and a large distribution and design center in Lincoln, Nebraska. With new ownership and Creative Director, the firm felt that New York is the place to be for creative talent andenergy, as well as the exposure to the roots of the company. The minimalist design approach and clean aesthetic showcased the iconic brand through classic subway tile, blackened steel, and touches of warm walnut throughout. The use of black satin mullions at the glass office fronts modernized the space giving it a loft-like feel. BR selected all the furnishings and lighting throughout, collaborating closely with the Dean & Deluca creative team and managing the installation of the custom work and purchased product.
