Nobu Fifty Seven
New York, NY
The Rockwell Group


Nobu Fifty Seven, the first uptown New York location for legendary chef Nobu Matsuhisa, was designed by David Rockwell to evoke the fluidity of an Asian river and to create an ambiance of elegance and refinement. Brad Oldham joined the design team to work on the private dining room.

Oldham designed and created a hammered-copper wall and ceiling installation to craft a dining environment of rich hues and soft lighting unlike any other private space in New York City. Each hand-cut wooden panel was covered in hand-hammered copper. The interlocking panels were numbered and designed to be installed like a puzzle to cover the entire ceiling and one featured wall. A challenge on such a project is to keep the hand-applied patina consistent across the panels. The studio team worked closely with mill workers and the project’s general contractor to ensure the pieces were flawlessly installed in the most honored place in Nobu Fifty Seven.
