The two worked with Parts and Labor Design to create an elegant, jewel-box restaurant and lounge inspired by Futurism (Italian, Afro, and beyond). Because we felt we were doing something unprecedented in NYC, we decided to really embrace the future, says Rose. The future can sometimes be described as cold, so it was important for us to make the space feel chic, warm, and inviting. We want to be a beacon for the islandyoure able to see this moment atop this building on Roosevelt Island, and it gives a sense of intrigue.

Design details includea large-scale, monolithic chandelier with translucent tubular acrylic set above an Orobico Red marble bar top; palatial black mosaic tile columns adorned with geometric chrome sconces; vintage-inspired blush velvet lounge sofas; additional seating in deep wine and grey velvet; and touches of chrome and marble everywhere.

Parts and Labor Design custom-made all of the furniture and lighting in the space.

Parts and Labor Design custom-made all of the furniture and lighting in the space, except for a show-stopping sculptural mirrored DJ booth near the entrance. This was designed by Cdric Hervet, the longtime creative director of Daft Punk, who has a furniture atelier in Normandy with his cousin.

When we talked to Cdric before COVID about the DJ booth, Daft Punk was still together as a band, and this went on for so long that now theyre no longer a band, says Rose. So we kind of feel like this is almost a piece of Daft Punk, and maybe well be lucky enough to get a stop on the reunion tour.

Rose and Abrous enlisted two friendsAnna Furney, who runs the Venus Over Manhattan gallery in NYC and designer/creative director Darren Romanelli, who is based in L.A.to curate the restaurants art collection. There are pieces including a painting by Spencer Lewis from a series he has been working on for nearly a decade but has rarely shown; Norwegian artist Ida Eklbads textural and brightly colored Tannin Stains a Noble River, 2020; and a sculptural piece custom-made for the space by Brian Belott.

The duo partnered with an all-female team to run the kitchen, with JaToria Harper (Michael Mina restaurants) as executive chef, Lindsey Verardo (Benno and Gramercy Tavern) as executive pastry chef, and Estelle Bossy (Union Square Hospitality Group and Del Posto) as beverage director.
