"Urban illumination and design handmade in New Orleans"
Manhattan Project Design Shop is a New Orleans-based lighting and design company founded in New York City in 2011. We design and manufacture a curated selection of custom and industrial lighting fixtures for residential and commercial applications. Founder and designer, Dennis Murphy, received his B.Arch degree from the Cooper Union School of Architecture before working in public-sector design at the NYC Department of Design and Construction. Our first lighting fixtures were the result of necessity, illuminating a north Brooklyn apartment that didn’t have a single light socket. We take pride in the craftsmanship and quality of our products which are assembled by hand in downtown NOLA. We follow Andy Warhol’s maxim “making money is art, and working is art, and good business is the best art.”
