  • About Project
  • The MoMa tower, or officially known as 53W53, finally topped off in early 2019. Architect Jean Nouvel’s apartment tower rises 82 stories, stands 1,050 feet tall, and is crowned by a $70 million duplex. It is the 7th tallest building currently under construction in New York City, and is now a notable part of the city’s skyline. While the glass facade has attracted a fair amount of media attention, the interiors are equally impressive. The fully bespoke kitchens feature polished nickel-plated fixtures crafted in Germany by acclaimed manufacturer Dornbracht include a pullout spray hose.
  • Project Brief
  • Samfet was responsible for installing the super-photogenic, luminous white countertops and backsplashes made from statuary Carrara marble, with bold silver-grey veining, quarried and finished in Italy. The Media has focused much on some of the bathroom features, including the “lollipop mirror” designed by Despont. The round polished-nickel vanity mirrors with integrated storage and LED perimeter lighting are just some of the special touches that make the residences so unique.
