Roosevelt Island Hotel Project

Best of 2021

Graduate Hotel's debut property in New York City, just outside the entrace to Cornell Tech campus, designed by AJ Capital (Graduate Hotels’ own in-house design team) features a look that was inspired by the local history of the Island and the technology vibe of Cornell Tech, creating a space that is truly unique (much like all of Graduate's properties). 

The guestroom lighting plays on the technology theme featuring nightstand lamps that display the Cornell fight song (in Morse Code as a tribute to the school's namesake) and a faux neon light fixture (actually LED) inspired by a science project from a Cornell alumni. 

Working closely with the design team and the purchasing firm Benjamin West, Innovation in Lighting is proud to have provided all the guestroom fixtures for this amazing project.


The Design Process

Innovations in Lighting was brought on board to help finalize the designs envisioned by AJ Capital, then engineer and manufacture the guestroom lighting to make their theme a reality.  This involved working within the scope of construction elements and limitations that were already in place, along with a time-frame that had already been established.






Feature pieces were manufactured using LED technology and all others were designed specifically for use with LED bulbs (E26 and E12 sockets).
