Located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, the Eisen Penthouse merges furniture with architecture to create seamless spaces, maximize livable area, and frame views. A sculpted wall folds from the living room to the kitchen while privatizing the master bedroom. In the living room, the wall displays artwork and curves into shelves; while, in the master bedroom, it folds into closet space. Recessed lights highlight this waving multipurpose surface.

Two continuous surfaces make up the sculpted wall: white titanium colored epoxy and walnut veneer. A soffit follows the wall and shapes a centralized raised ceiling, painted with a silver texture. Wrapping into the kitchen, the wall folds into a breakfast bar, cabinets, and a serving station. A metal shelf bends parallel with the cabinets and dissolves at the entrance of the kitchen where it becomes a cooking surface.
