Calvin Klein New York Showroom
ARO worked in close collaboration with artist Sterling Ruby for two new full-floor spaces in Calvin Klein’s headquarters as part of the iconic American brand’s direction under creative director Raf Simons.
The 10,000 SF ground floor look space and a 12,000 sf showroom on an upper floor are gallery-like permanent installations of Sterling Ruby’s art. Large works are suspended from the ceilings of both spaces and hand-painted canvas wallpaper wraps the showroom.
In addition to the look space and upper floor, support spaces include back of house areas and a pantry. Designed and completed in the span of four months, the project was unveiled with the launch of Raf Simons’ line for Calvin Klein.
