Take a look at how we built a kaleidoscope entryway at Le Poisson Rouge this past February. Owner, Phil Winser conceptualized and directed its building, which took only 8 hours, and served as the entrance to the event.
Event: Krug House Aspen
Location: A private home in Aspen, Colorado
Production &Catering Elements: A four-day event consisting of trade lunches, apres-skis, dinners, and finally, on the last evening, a holiday party, all taking place in a beautiful house in the mountains. Materials from the original champagne makers, postcards with photographs from the Krug cellars, and vintage bottles adorned the rooms to make the home a true Krug House. With fantastic catering from The Little Nell as well as from Chef Nick Wilber from our very own The Fat Radish, the food paired perfectly with the various vintages enjoyed by Krug House guests.
Liberty Warehouse is an event space that, from its patio, boasts one of the best views of the city. To give the same awe inspiring feeling to the interior, we converted the entire 5,000 square foot dining room into a park by laying down sod, planting trees, and stringing up vines. White picnic tables were then brought in for a family style dinner that evening with 250 guests in attendance.
Event: Bullett Magazine‘s First Anniversary Party
Location: Angel Orensanz, on the Lower East Side
Production Elements: A performance from Crystal Castles, a vintage photo booth with fur hates, guns and trumpets as props, a large moss-covered bar, a forest with large trees, an envelope installation where guests wrote their secrets in hung them from branches, and a light up, custom made Bullett sign guests saw as they entered the party.
Event: Cohen-Berman Wedding, September 10th, 2011
Location: Liberty Warehouse in Red Hook
Production & Catering Elements: Silkstone created an inside garden with a floor completely laid with sod, white picnic tables and large flower displays and vines where the guests enjoyed a family style dinner. After the reception, guests were brought out on to the balcony for a surprise firework show, set off from the middle of the water and cakes and pies from go-to pastry company, Shell Co. Downstairs, we designed an old dive bar complete with antique furniture, a taxidermy tank and a full fridge of Budweiser, along with a photo booth which included Americana costumes and props.
We followed Krug on their four day tour of New York through some of New York’s finest restaurants where they celebrated with sommeliers, gave talks to distributors, and dined with champagne enthusiasts. President and CEO of Krug, Maggie Henriquez, also discussed Krug’s new labels that allow every bottle to be scanned with a smart phone to display details on the champagne.
Event: The U.S. launch of Dom Perignon’s new Luminous label
Location: 76 Wooster Street
Production Elements: An entirely glow-in-the-dark party where Dom Perignon’s new neon label (powered by a button on the bottom of the bottle) shined brightly in an industrial space complete with dancers, spinning bottles and Swizz Beatz DJing atop some very large scaffolding. Guests entered through a wooden tunnel in which old TVs sat, playing static and reflecting images of guests entering up the stairs.
Event: Photo Booth for a wedding, September 2011
Location: Liberty Warehouse
Production Elements: With Yosemite National Park as the backdrop, guests of the bride and groom were invited to grab whatever props they could find- from hats and vests to musical instruments and firearms. Atop either a very large stuff bear or a rustic saddle, guests had two photos snapped of them- one to take home and one to be postmarked and sent to the bride and groom as a souvenir.
In May of this year, Silkstone partnered with boutique hotel group, King & Grove to open new hotel, restaurant and bar, Ruschmeyer’s, in Montauk. With dishes like Montauk White Clam Pizza with Chili & Parsley and Chilled Lobster Salad with Shaved Fennel & Local Lettuces, the menu at Ruschmeyer’s embraces the seasonal summer produce and the best seafood of the area. In addition to the dinner menu, every morning breakfast is available at the hotel’s breakfast nook (run by the legendary, Floyd), with fresh made avocado on toast, banana bread, yoghurt with seasonal fruit and granola, and coffee by Jack’s Coffee. With an outside bar, nineteen rooms, a dance floor (located in The Electric Eel), bikes for loan, and in close proximity to the beaches, Ruschmeyer’s is the perfect summer spot.
