Bridging the gap between the historic facade and the new interior space within, Aidlin Darling designed Wexler’s barbeque restaurant with an incredible undulating ceiling that is evocative of both charred wood and a plume of smoke. Created out of laser cut MDF and painted black, this ceiling installation billows through a refined palette of zinc and rift-sawn oak before emerging as the restaurant’s entry canopy. The soft glow of the pendant lighting at the bar highlights the undulations in the ribbed ceiling and visually sends it in motion. via
