Originally founded by artist Steven Wine in 1993 as “and Bob’s Your Uncle”, a storefront on West 22nd street in NYC, the company was re-imagined in 2007 in collaboration with interior designer Benjamin Noriega-Ortiz and renamed, ABYU Lighting.
The main focus of ABYU Lighting is creating one-of-a-kind lighting fixtures, by hand, with exquisite materials, specializing in feathers. The couture workroom is located in the historic Garment District in New York City, where a team of artists produce pieces for a celebrity clientele such as Patricia Field, Ruthie Davis, Lenny Kravitz, Russell Simmons and Sean “Diddy” Combs among others. The atelier works directly with designers and architects to produce unique pieces deeply rooted in fashion. Their creations have graced the pages of magazines and books worldwide.
