After Milan, Cologne, Stockholm and New York, Arper unveils a new strategic space in the Clerkenwell district. Designed by the London-based architecture firm 6A Architects, the showroom is an open space interacting with the outside via ten large windows placed along two sides.
Inside soft shades, open volumes and surfaces reflect environment light making it the ideal space to represent Arper leading value: the pursuit of the essential. The unusual combinations of construction materials are the distinguishing features of this space: the stucco-finished walls, the light-coloured wooden floor, the coated aluminium of the finishes contrasting with the exposed concrete of several elements in the central area, as a reference to the districts industrial past.
The location of the new Arper’s showroom is rich in marks left by the first industrial revolution, such as antique breweries and distilleries, factories and printing works, now converted into lofts by the professionals that found in this area a perfect place to live and work. The change has been so significant that now Clerkenwell is one of the areas with the highest concentration of engineering and architecture firms in the world.
Therefore, this strategic space in such a special context has been selected in order to increase brand recognition and improve its placement. This showroom will allow for a comprehensive exhibition of Arper collection, offering support to specifiers and interior designers in their professional activity as well as representing a space for sharing experience of Arper’s values.” This flexible space will allow for the organization of events and installations connected to the company’s cultural commitment, establishing a dialogue rich in content with the international design community.
