Space Copenhagen selects natural materials for New York's 11 Howard hotel interior

Danish studio Space Copenhagen has created bespoke furniture using stone, wood and leather to complement its interiors for this hotel in Manhattan’s SoHo district.

11 Howard is Space Copenhagen’s first project in the US. The building, a former post office, was overhauled by local architects Beyer Blinder Belle – the firm responsible for the renovation of The Met Breuer.

Located on Howard Street, the 221-room hotel was opened in April 2016 by property tycoon Aby Rosen.

Space Copenhagen – the studio behind the interiors of the famous Noma restaurant in the Danish capital – worked with creative director Anda Andrei to design the spaces and furniture for 11 Howard.

The team aimed to infuse the New York hotel with typical Danish design by selected natural materials and a muted palette for the guest bedrooms.

“We’re really interested in materials – stone, woods, leathers,” said Space Copenhagen co-founder Signe Bindslev Henriksen. “We love things that age well. It’s part of our responsibility that a project lives on in a beautiful manner long after we’ve left.”

The studio created a range of custom furniture, handmade in Denmark, for the rooms. Adapted from its Fly collection for Danish brand &tradition, the lounge pieces are made from oiled oak to add to the light colour palette of the walls and flooring.
