Custom glass and metal screen

Craig Kellog wrote an interesting article for Interior Design named "Mansion in the Sky", about a couple's decision to move from the suburbs to the centre of Manhattan, custom-tailoring everything to their needs and wants. I'm not very enthusiastic about the look of the place in general (some of the art pieces make me wince, and there's that modern "nothing goes with anything" look that's so fashionable these days).

However, I've fallen in love with one of the area's main pieces, an astounding glass and metal screen (handmade by Susan Woods) that sets the scene and contrives to give the place a definite something. Funny how optical illusions go, it took me a while to realise both chair and desk are in front of the screen (the reflection on the desk's mirror surface makes it look as if it's behind). What a wonderful working space.
