2017: Our Most Promising Year Yet

Happy New Year!

Your feedback and positive energy made our first quarter in our new home at 312 West 4th more than we could have hoped.  We hosted private events for a handful of non-profit organizations, holiday parties for a couple of pretty well-healed women’s clubs, a standing room only Concert Nova coffee fueled concert and the works of modern artist Mary Barr Rhodes.  If that weren’t enough, Switch became holiday card central for some.  Fred and Lydia captured our livable modern vibe in these dynamic images by Stereoscope Photography:

 

And now this…a feature in Venue Magazine!  With 10,000 subscribers reading about our new destination, we expect to make a boatload of new friends…and customers.

 

We’d love to host your event.  Call us at (513) 421-1901 or email Bertie.  We’ll certainly make it memorable.

2015 DAAP Industrial Design Student Showcase

Today Switch is pleased to be hosting the 2015 DAAP Industrial Design Students from University of Cincinnati. For the past few years, Switch has been taking part in the student’s final project by way of offering our lighting knowledge and expertise. The project is for the students to create their own unique lighting fixture. Here’s a few from the past year we loved:

Switch’s Lighting of the Globe

The Globe Building that now houses People’s Liberty has been open for a week or two at this point. Switch is proud to have provided the lighting for this wonderful space. Today we want to highlight some of the main features we provided!

This space in the kitchen is meant for ‘family dinners’. It features a cluster of Graypants Scraplights. Scraplights are made up of recycled card board, and are created ins Seattle. They add a nice texture to this lovely space!

We have a few Scotch Club fixtures by Marset through out the space in various sitting or meeting areas. Marset is located in Barcelona, Spain, and Scotch Club is made out of ceramics.

Pleat Box, Scotch Club’s brother, is hanging in a cluster of various colors and sizes over the conference table. The repeating ceramic fixtures through out the space help to keep the whole building integrated.

If you haven’t stopped by to see the restored Globe Building yet, you really should!

Home & Garden Show Wrap Up

This past week has been a calm one compared to the busy bustling of the Home & Garden Show going on the past two weeks. While we’re glad to have a bit of a break, we also miss seeing all of our friends and making new ones at the show! Take a look at some of our photos we took during the 2015 Home & Garden show:
