The goal of the new showroom is to bring Häfele’s product portfolio to life with real-world application, according to the company. The 4,000-sq.-ft. space features the latest in LED lighting, decorative and functional hardware, and architectural components for residential and commercial projects.

The European inspired space, located in the lower end of Manhattan (20 West 22nd St.), is a collaborative effort between Perkins+Will’s New York Interior Design and Chicago-based Branded Environments.

“Our goal in building this showroom was to create a hardware destination for people all over the world to admire, appreciate and experience all that Häfele uniquely has to offer,” Häfele America Co. president Paul K. Smith said in a statement. “The result is a powerful presentation of how our company’s global reach and brand directly supports projects large and small.”

The modular design of Häfele’s showroom allows the space to accommodate daily visitors and then easily transform to host a variety of industry educational seminars, training programs, cocktail receptions, open-house events and more in support of architects, designers and architectural millworkers.
