Five Franklin Place

Project: Five Franklin Place
Location: Manhattan, NY
Architect: Ben van Berkel, UNStudio
Description: Reception desk & library stand
Material: DuPont Corian, Glacier White
Fabricated by: Sterling Miller Designs, Brockton, MA

As often happens on a custom project, the Vila NM residential kitchen led to a high-end commercial project in Manhattan, called Five Franklin Place. Sterling-Miller fabricated a Glacier White Corian reception desk and library stand for the post-modern condominium project. As with the Vila NM project, Ben van Berkel designed the building and the architectural surfaces.

“The entire project was thermoformed,” Miller explained. “All the molds were custom.”

LED lights concealed at the bottom of the structure give it a hovering appearance. Internal bracing within the reception desk supports the Corian to create a feeling of weightlessness in the design of the structure.
