Arper now opens its new showroom in Clerkenwell, a strategic space in London’s design and architecture district, thus further expanding its international network of showrooms.
This elegant space, which has been designed by the London-based architects 6A, is open to the street on the two sides, featuring the use of different materials - plaster, wood and cast aluminium – all in the shades of white. These elements, which meet the pursuit for the essential that characterises the Arper trademark, alternate with other elements in concrete, memento of the industrial past of this district. All this gives life to a unique context for the exhibition of the complete Arper collections.
The new Arper showroom in London is an exhibition area especially conceived as a place where the experience of Arper brand values can be communicated and shared. Bearing this premise in mind, the 560 sqm space has been conceived to be flexible to allow it to host both exhibitions and events, which Arper wishes to organize here to further cement an open exchange of ideas with architects, specifiers and designers and with all the London design community.
This showroom will allow for a comprehensive exhibition of Arper collections, while acting as a meeting place for architects and for hosting cultural events. The “Lina Bo Bardi: Together” project, for instance, which Arper has already launched and sponsored, from September can be visited at the London headquarters of the British Council."
