Rockwell Group joined forces once again with famed restaurateur, Danny Meyer, to design a new restaurant and café at The Whitney Museum of American Art.  To complement the mid-century-modern architecture of the Marcel Breuer building, the cellar-level restaurant offers an uptown take on the traditional diner with streamlined furniture and features.  Delineated by a large white lacquer frame, the bar area is backed by a chalkboard detailing daily specials and featuring a wood cake display shelves. Rockwell Group also designed simple white oak tables and room dividers, seating with red felt upholstery, and custom metal lamps to create a comfortable and industrial-chic environment. Felt-backed white oak benches line three sides of the restaurant with long communal tables filling the interior. All furniture and fixtures can easily be removed for museum events.
