Resource Furniture is opening a new location on Fifth Avenue! No, not another showroom but at a museum. We are proud to announce our sponsorship of Making Room: New Models for Housing New Yorkers opening January 23 at The Museum of the City of New York (MCNY). This groundbreaking exhibition explores NYC’s shifting housing landscape, and presents innovative solutions to housing issues facing New Yorkers and urban populations worldwide.

A highlight of the exhibition is LaunchPad, a full-scale 325 square foot apartment built by Clei s.r.l and Resource Furniture within the exhibit. With careful space planning and the use of transformable furniture throughout, this jewel box of an apartment seamlessly morphs to fit the occupant’s changing needs throughout the course of a day.

Architect Pierluigi Colombo, one of the owners of Clei, designed the interior space. “LaunchPad is a very European style of living” said Pierluigi. “You can still live a luxurious life in a small footprint – it’s more about how carefully the space is designed that matters.”

We couldn’t agree more! The exhibit opens January 23 and will run through September, so put this on your calendar! There are also several fascinating public programs scheduled at MCNY that anyone interested in design, architecture, housing policy, or demographics won’t want to miss.

Making Room is co-curated by MCNY and the Citizens Housing & Planning CouncilMinimal USA, Key Cucine, Bolon, Duravit, 3.2.1. Contract and ConcreteWall have also contributed to LaunchPad.
