Overview

Full collection of hand blown glass lighting for bar and restaurant at the Four Seasons Hotel Seattle Goldfinch Tavern.

Goals

The goals were to emphasize the natural elements of the Pacific Northwest in each of the design elements. Julie designed the Nuvole "glass clouds" for the bar and hostess area and the Acqua Sconces in the restaurant to highlight the natural weather patterns and water reflections of Seattle's Puget Sound.

Process

EDG Design utilized many textures and elements to evoke the essence of the Pacific Northwest. Tiles cast with local tree patterns, cedar from the forest and locally made blown glass are key components to the restaurant that features regionally sourced foods from the area, offered by local celebrity chef Ethan Stowell.
