Carl Hansen & Søn concept rooms lofts
opening a store in 2011 in Soho, Carl Hansen & Søn has recently announced its second New York showroom, in the Flatiron District, one of the most creative zones of the city. Located in a historic building on Park Avenue South, the space of over 700 square meters has the architectural characteristics of a typical metropolitan loft, paced by three independent concept rooms surrounded by large windows, each with its own theme and its own chromatic range. The concept rooms include one space entirely set aside for contract, a room of pale tones that contains some of the icons of the Danish company, and a room entirely focused on the legendary Hans J. Wegner: a tribute to the designer who had his longest working relationship precisely with this company. Another zone is set aside for materials, where designers can examine samples and select the finishes for their projects, while at the center of the space a completely equipped kitchen and dining area can be used for special design events. “New York is the beating heart of modern design,” says Thomas Vagner, president of Carl Hansen & Søn. “Our timeless aesthetic has been welcomed here with enthusiasm, since it works perfectly with both classic and contemporary furnishings. Our goal for this new showroom is to create a dynamic space that can be used for events, meetings and exhibitions.”
