“Our focus is enhancing the built environment’s needs through positive relationships.”
If you’ve seen the lighting and ornament work by Gerald Olesker and Joey Gennaro at ADG Eco Lighting, you know it is a sight to see. Many have likened their work to the works of Edward F. Caldwell & Co.
The talent of this dynamic duo fill some of the world’s most beautiful spaces. From restaurant commissions for the likes of Spago and the Four Seasons Hotel Bahrain Bay, to the exclusive estates throughout Southern California, their projects represent their multi-faceted talents.
So what happens when the specialty side for designers, homeowners and hoteliers alike is customized? Teams like ADG Lighting take the pen and calipers in hand and begin the design process — because they hold the control with the fabrication that makes the process extra special.
Here at ADG, we take pride in our work and craftsmanship. Our significant designs and inspired collections are developed from Olesker working with some of the finest and most prominent architects, designers and building owners around the globe. His works have been placed into homes designed by Marc Appleton, Gwathmey Siegel, and Robert Stern’s office.
Inspired by Michael Berman, Olesker got into the metal furniture industry when Michael suggested to Gerald that he make the MBL Shearboun table for himself. Olesker then began to fulfill orders for Berman and other designers in town for metal furniture. Each fixture and piece of furniture initially comes in a form developed by Olesker within a specific scope for the project. Certainly while designs are repeated, many of the original inspirations remain some of the most published and seen homes and projects today.
Diversity is key component of the company’s work. Contrasting designs and fixtures are key to the successful following and modest studio approach by Olesker and Gennaro.
Where can designers find diversity in lighting and furniture? Look no further. With Olesker’s formal education degree in Architecture and Gennaro’s applied hands-on training in Industrial Design, this duo is the 21st-century of teams like Cadwell and Lossberg, Charles and Ray Eames, and the talents of Taliesen.
The team of Olesker and Gennaro have worked on many private label projects for designers from LA to New York. They are currently launching other lines, as well as continuing their custom design and manufactured lighting and furniture projects. Their work can be seen worldwide, from the West Coast all the way to the Middle East.
