Arper opens in New York

Arper has recently inaugurated its flagship showroom in New York City. Showcasing a unique vision that blurs the boundaries between residential and work styles, the 4,000 sq. ft. loft space in Soho features furnishing solutions that go beyond function alone and combine simplicity, flexibility and beauty.

“North America is becoming increasingly important for our company as we continue to develop our operations here – said Claudio Feltrin, Owner and CEO – We want the New York City space to not only show our furniture, but to also serve as a place for Arper to collaborate with designers surrounded by comfort and beauty”.

Housed in a historic building dating back to 1904 the sprawling second-floor space features giant windows and ample sunlight. Through the vast windows, one can see sides of the imposing columns that decorate historic facade, adding a layer of texture to the otherwise minimal interior design. New York-based architect Solveig Fernlund was responsible for the architecture and interior design of the space. Barcelona-based Lievore Altherr Molina, long-time collaborators of Arper, involved in the design of most of the product collections, was the creative director in charge of the furniture display.

The showroom will showcase Arper collection of products including chairs – task, lounge and contract models, sofas and tables – and will house the offices of Arper USA, overseeing the company’s operations in North America, including a new operational hub in High Point, North Carolina that will centralize manufacturing and logistics for North America, as well as the company’s showroom in Chicago’s Merchandise Mart.
