To become more accessible to
designers, Brooklyn-based furniture
manufacturer Uhuru recently opened a
Manhattan showroom with a curated
collection of its unique designs.
The entrance area of the showroom pays homage to both Red Hook’s shipping industry roots, in addition
to the previous tenant of the space. Before Uhuru moved into its Tribeca home, the location served as the studio for artist
Donald Sultan. Well-known for his pop art pieces, the company decided to honor Sultan by keeping the original wood
floors, which have noticeable paint splatters from the days when art was created there.
