CompanyWalter K. opens office and brand space in New York
Walter K., the U.S. brand affiliated with renowned German manufacturer Walter Knoll, will reach a major milestone with the opening of its first U.S. office and brand space in New York on the occasion of ICFF. Located on 26th Street and Broadway, the establishment will function as the brand’s U.S. head office. The display area will feature a rich selection of the company residential and contract collections which belong to a large portfolio of classic and avant-garde designs in refined leathers, exclusive fabrics and precious woods.
The high-end furniture manufacturer has been a staple of exquisite interiors for more than 150 years. The company got its start in 1865 in Stuttgart, Germany, where all of its products are still produced to this day. Hans Knoll, son of the manufacturer’s namesake, brought the company to the United States in 1938. By exporting the brand’s dedication to masterly craftsmanship, fine materials, and timeless design across the Atlantic, Knoll introduced the cosmopolitan, high-design lifestyle into U.S. markets. Walter K. is distributed by select retailers across the nation; however, with this launch, it will also have a place to call home in New York City’s NoMad neighborhood.
Walter K.’s inspirations and outreach are global in scale. Iconic products by designers like Norman Foster, EOOS, and Kengo Kuma, just to name a few, have embellished diverse interiors from Australia to France and the United States. With the opening of this U.S. headquarter, Walter K. will expand its reach into the U.S. and North America, by introducing its vast array of excellent residential and contract furniture offerings to a broader audience. The office will be a brand touchpoint for A&D talks and trainings. It will also act as a window into Walter K.’s performance and as an initiator of upcoming interior and office projects.
During ICFF, from May 19 to May 22, 2018, Walter K. will host an open house from 10 am to 3 pm every day. Visitors are invited and welcome to come by.
