Wave of the future 2012

Stephen Parker

For more than a decade, we have annually honored a handful of designers, architects, and owners as our Wave of the Future, those who are young enough to be considered visionary, but tested enough to be accomplished. This year, we have compiled another stellar group. Look out for coverage of them in our September issue, and come hear them live during a panel at HD Boutique, September 11-12th in Miami Beach.

Matthew Lightner’s wild-food menu of locally sourced grasses, roots, and herbs has planted Atera among New York’s most buzz-worthy eateries. In Oscar de la Renta’s verdant prints, you won’t have to forage far for a palatable pairing...

Opening today, Atera, the newest culinary addition to New York’s TriBeCa neighborhood, is an exercise in exclusive, intimate and above all unique dining. The soothing boîte is accessed through two 100-year-old salvaged cedarwood doors and features a 12-seat, reservation-only dining bar that encircles the massive open kitchen like a stage.

There is a greenhouse in the basement...

Wearing Their Herb Garden on Their Sleeve

Taking green design to a veritably literal level, Atera's living wall is both a statement piece and a decorative component at the newly opened restaurant in NYC's Tribeca neighborhood. "We based the restaurant's design on Matt's approach to cooking food," explains Andrew Cohen of the design firm Parts and Labor Design, referring to Atera's executive chef Matthew Lightner. Lightner is known for highlighting freshly foraged and indigenous ingredients. 

Labor Union Dinner

Jeremy Levitt and Andrew Cohen, have an office that would make any cubicle drone jealous. Outfitted with a fully loaded bar and a pool table in the main lobby area, it's no wonder the space in NYC's Soho was the perfect site for their recent "Labor Union Dinner" party.

As the founders of Parts and Labor Design, the firm behind the impressive and stylin' aesthetics at Tribeca's recently opened Atera, Levitt and Cohen work with plenty lot of Jacks in various trades. Recently, they pulled the talent together for one night of "colleague appreciation" and networking over Blue Smoke barbecue, pool and plenty of brown liquor.
