Edun Offices, NYC

  • Client Edun,
  • Location New York City, New York, United States,
  • Industry Fashion / Beauty,
  • New York City is the fashion capital of the United States and attracts a large number of big name designers. Edun, an eco design studio recently moved into their new space, which is choc full of reclaimed materials. Edun’s office and showroom was designed by New York-based firm, Spacesmith.

    The first noticeable feature of the space are the Tom Sawyer-looking whitewashed walls fashioned from reclaimed wood. Edun was conscientious of using recycled materials in an effort to expand their eco-centric brand into their space. Pioneer Millwork was used to source the materials.

    In that same vein, the company used locally-crafted, as well as restored furniture to fill their decorating needs. The office is also bathed in bright light, which was intentionally comprised mainly of natural light, augmented by typical ceiling-based fixtures.

    A little more about the project from Spacesmith:

    In 2010, Spacesmith was retained to design the lifestyle fashion brand’s new 8,600 square foot space to house offices; a showroom; design, production & marketing teams; and a sample room on the corner of Grand and Mercer Streets in Soho. The design intent was to keep the new construction to a minimum while allowing natural daylight to penetrate into the space and to embrace EDUN’s commitment to sustainability. It was fundamental to EDUN that Spacesmith design the space using reclaimed and salvaged materials and furnishings and to work with local vendors, craftsmen and craftswomen.
