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.”
