The Lipstick Building consists of four oval-shaped cylinders placed above each other, each smaller in diameter than the one below, creating a set-back appearance. On the 36-storey facade, red granite spandrels alternate with the shiny steel of horizontal window bands. The elliptical lobby, which is open to the public, has a colonnade of steel-banded and round pillars along the glassed outer wall line, and the columns double on the outside, forming a narrow arcade there. The unusual shape of the Lipstick Building, which has given the building its nickname, was a requirement of the developer, to make the building stand out and compensate for the less fashionable location of Third Avenue. The elliptical shape also claims to make all the exterior offices "corner" offices.
