When even the elevators are works of art

In a midtown New York art deco building YVStudio restored the ceiling of one of the elevators. 

The building itself is a stunning example of art deco at its best, and its elevators are no exception.

The magnificent inlaid wood walls and lighting fixtures are crowned by a sliver dome. After recent damage was inflicted, I re-gilded its 9 ceiling panels.
