Anthropologie Chelsea Market

  • Storefront & Stair Rail – 2010
  • New York, NY
  • Designer: Pompei A.D.
  • General Contractor: Kwality Builders

This unique Anthropologie store in the Chelsea Market (NYC) allowed IMS the opportunity to not only create a custom steel storefront system, but also to provide & install the stair guardrails & handrails as well. The all-glass guardrail features a clean design with all structure & glazing shoes hidden beneath finish materials. This installation necessitated thoughtful coordination with the general contractor & other trades. The reclaimed oak handrail (wood rail provided by Misko, Inc.) is supported by custom steel brackets developed by IMS.
