Part showroom and part gallery, our SoHo, New York space doubles as an exhibition space and a workspace. Collaborating with Office of Tangible Space, we designed our loft to be a visual representation of our commitment to new approaches.

Situated on the fourth floor, the elevator opens into the space, revealing a curved stone table with an oak tambour base. The material palette for the table was inspired by contemporary and historic moments in the art world; marine fir plywood evokes the works of Donald Judd, while travertine is an homage to old-world stone sculpture. At the far end of the table sits a glowing orb, adding a touch of magic. The table also conceals a set of flat file drawers, which house various works on paper.

Along the side-wall, a custom-fabricated 20 foot wide shelving system displays sculptural objects from various Uprise Art artists. The shelves feature a mix of curved and linear edges, providing surfaces of varying depths for sculptures of all sizes. A rectangular shelf sits nestled in the center, acting as a focal point to balance the airy, open structure.

Integrating the historical details of the building, the unit [is built] to hug the wall and fit like a puzzle piece around the existing pipes and insets. The result is an asymmetrical fir plywood unit of shelves that features a mix of curved and linear edges, providing surfaces of varying depths.

The lounge provides a meeting space that feels more like a living room than a conference room. The fir wood walls and the coffee table connect the areas, adding a warmth and texture to an otherwise white-walled space. Sculptural lighting by Uprise Art artist Angel Oloshove casts warm light through strategically placed cutouts.

The space is peppered with functional objects commissioned by Uprise Art artists, including a pair of colorful benches by collaborative duo Adam Frezza and Terri Chiao.

The curved edges continue on into the kitchen, where a custom-built island pulls you in with it's growing undulations. A minimal palette was selected to provide a backdrop for unique ceramics by Pilar Wiley and other Uprise Art artists. Echoing the ceramics on display, the backsplash is made with handcrafted porcelain tile in a soft white.

Following the curved line on the floor takes you to our dedicated exhibition space. The Judd-inspired fir plywood clads the walls, while custom-built screen walls cap the edges of the space.
