Tribune Tavern Oakland CA

The Tribune Tavern is the latest venture from Chris Pastena of Chop Bar and Temoor Noor of Grand Tavern. They approached me to add my industrial Oakland style to this project’s lighting.

A century ago, the Oakland Tribune used the tower’s ground floor as its “local room” – a large, open space where reporters from different departments worked side by side and shared tips on the news of the day. It was a gathering spot for the great minds of Oakland, and a place where headlines were made.

The Spider light fixture came out of my fascination for vintage industrial lighting. I have a 1920′s single arm version of this over my lathe in the shop. It got me thinking, wouldn’t it be wonderful if each person sitting at the dining table could adjust the lighting to suit their needs? Here is where that thought took me: Lighting for 8.
