The shimmering glass mosaic tiles sheathing the walls and ceiling of the Red Room, the client reception area of the former Irving Trust Company at One Wall Street, make this space one of the most breathtaking interiors in Manhattan. Perry Coke Smith, a designer and later a partner with Voorhees, Gmelin & Walker, the architects of One Wall Street, designed the intricate abstract flame-like pattern. American muralist Hildreth Meière was the consultant on scale and color, which ranges from a deep ox-blood red on the lower walls to a brilliant golden orange on the ceiling. Inaccessible to the public since 2014, the Red Room is now the sales office for Macklowe Properties' One Wall Street condominium project. Join members of the International Hildreth Meière Association, Kathleen Murphy Skolnik, coauthor of "The Art Deco Murals of Hildreth Meière," and representatives of Macklowe Properties, to learn more about Meière, the Red Room, and the history of One Wall Street.
