Domino Park is a 6-acre public park at the site of the old Domino Sugar refinery along the East River in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Designed by James Corner Field Operations (who also designed the High Line in Manhattan), the park opened in 2018 featuring a 5-block riverside walk with stunning views of lower Manhattan and the city’s East River bridges. By day, parkgoers play volleyball in the sand and picnic in the grass. At night, the park comes alive with light. Designer Alex Jimenez of GFC Lighting specified 3.0 Static White Series 2 RibbonLyte in slim AS1 channel from Acolyte to illuminate the long handrails that grace the elevated promenade, which was intended as an homage to the industrial interior of the old refinery. Our 3.0 Static White Series 2 also provides ambience for the Domino Sugar crane platform, bucket conveyer and hoist trellis. In the park and along the sea rail, large seating steps (built using reclaimed wood from the refinery) make great selfie spots with the city skyline in the background – and our elegant toe kick lighting lets you take in the view without imposing on the eye. Now that’s what we like to call “sweet” lighting design!
