City Bakery has opened an outpost of their famous Birdbath Café on the ground floor of the New Museum on the Bowery. Arper Leaf chairs surround the café’s square and communal tables, creating a gathering place for museum visitors and the creative community of New York City.
The café, founded twenty years ago by acclaimed baker Maury Rubin, is known for its outstanding food and baked treats, its forward-thinking practices and a strong focus on the environment. Birdbath is an example of the meeting of good design and sustainability.
The Leaf Chair was chosen for the café by the New Museum and Birdbath for its award-winning design and for Arper’s company-wide commitment to minimize its environmental impact at every stage of the chair’s production.
