LED Lighting

Engineered Lighting

  • Engineered Lighting

    Rambusch offers the widest choice of architectural lighting solutions in the industry. Many manufacturers base a reputation on one type of fixture or sheer size of operation. We, on the other hand, provide light where needed, never detracting from or adversely affecting the architectural environment. This aim has held steady through four generations of the firm’s management. As an integrated family, Rambusch engineered fixtures work in combination to achieve what one single fixture type cannot. To light spaces and help designers best use our tools in creating uplifting environments, Rambusch provides far more than hardware. In addition to building fixtures, our business is built on communication, collaboration and shared knowledge. While there are other approaches, ours has served Rambusch clients well for over a century.

Custom Lighting

  • Custom Lighting

    Rambusch works through its specialized lighting workshops to create beautiful, energy-efficient light for all settings and occasions, including new designs and updates of historic systems. Over the years we have implemented a vast array of fixture designs in all workable materials, housing light sources from flame to LED. Original fixtures can deliver more than one type of lighting from multiple hidden sources. New decorative fixtures can make a major statement, be concealed, or sit anywhere in between. From our design floor and metal and glass shops, Rambusch facilitates concept, experimentation, mock-ups, thermal and photometric testing, and Underwriters Laboratories (UL) approval - all prior to fabrication.

    Projects

Liturgical Design

  • Liturgical Design

    Our staff designers have always sought to serve the worship and liturgical needs of communities without adversely impacting architectural spaces and settings. We have been successful because we have always sought to clearly understand the voice of the community within the vocabulary of the building. From Victorian to Post-Modern, dominant styles and tastes change over time. Our designs seamlessly blend changes and updates into liturgical objects while tastefully answering the requirements of the space, the congregation, and the community. Through scholarship and experience, Rambusch designers have found answers through nearly every known medium and for all budgets: marble and granite, surface paint, fresco, secco and gilding, mosaic, stained glass, ceramics, fine woodwork, carved and cast ornament, repoussè, engraving, silver, gold, bronze, plastics, stainless steel, Monel metal, and aluminum.

Stained Glass

  • Stained Glass

    Rambusch is the sole survivor of the many Manhattan arts and crafts firms producing stained glass in the early 1900s. Today the 5,000 square-foot glass studio is staffed with full-time artisans dedicated to designing, painting, kiln-firing, and leading stained glass windows. Our glass artists employ the same time-honored techniques of their forebears, etching, tracing, matting, shading, sculpting, staining, painting, and assembling. They are well prepared to handle nearly any size project for religious or secular environments, whether a new commission, repair or conservation, replication, or repair. We’ve worked with windows by our nation’s great stained-glass artists, including Louis Comfort Tiffany, John La Farge, and Maitland Armstrong. Theirs and all glass that sees our glass shop workbenches receive painstaking, fully documented restoration under appropriate conservation treatments.
