McDermott Will & Emery

New York, NY

Established in Chicago in 1934, McDermott Will & Emery (MWE) has expanded significantly, emerging as one of the leading law firms in the United States and worldwide. With a team of over 1,200 attorneys spanning across more than 20 locations in six countries, MWE has established itself as a prominent player in the legal arena. In mid-2021, MWE made a strategic move by relocating its operations in New York City to prime office space within a newly constructed, 67-story skyscraper. Occupying floors 44 to 47, as well as the 67th floor housing its lobby, executive offices, and conference center, the firm's new headquarters embody modernity and sophistication. Carefully designed to reflect the firm's corporate ethos, which places a premium on employee satisfaction, this new space offers an optimal environment for collaboration and productivity. Notably, the lobby on the 67th floor stands out for its breathtaking vistas of the New York skyline, enhancing the overall experience for visitors and staff alike.
The Primus ALX4-HP, ALX2-LP Straight & Flex cove fixtures were chosen to create a welcoming ambient light in the lobbies and central office areas. These fixtures produced a visually appealing effect by softly illuminating the white structural ceilings from above through floating panels, rings, and abstract shapes suspended a few feet below. Both the straight and flexible configurations seamlessly followed the required shapes throughout the space while remaining discreetly hidden from view.
