During the Festival, NYCxDESIGN is building off of the virtual Self-Guided Journeys platform to present a series of LIVE studio visits. Through these visits, the NYC design community and the interested public will have the opportunity to visit a variety of design destinations and interact with local creative leaders.

Stickbulb is an award-winning lighting brand co-founded in 2012 by RUX Studios Founder and Creative Director Russell Greenberg and Managing Partner Christopher Beardsley as a way to combine their mutual love of architecture, modular systems, and sustainable manufacturing. Born from a pile of scrap wood, the principal objective of Stickbulb has always been to create more light with less waste. To this day the team makes small desk lamps through to room-filling installations out of wood from locally demolished buildings, dismantled water towers, fallen trees, and sustainably managed forests. The brand has received international accolades including the Red Dot Award and the NYCxDESIGN Award for Best in Show.
This open event will provide a glimpse into the studio’s design and local fabrication process. The Stickbulb showroom and studio are operated in a 10,000-square-foot space, originally built in the 1920s for the Empire Iron Works Company. The building’s industrial details, textured terracotta walls, and weathered wooden floors have been offset with brand’s sleek, modern LED fixtures, as well as its award-winning, grand-scale Ambassador sculpture.
