expormim opens first pop-up store in new york soho's xoco 325


located in new york’s soho cast-iron district, expormim opens its first pop-up space at ‘xoco 325’. within a new architectural landmark for the area, the temporary showroom aims to leave a long-lasting impression and reflect the strong identity of the furniture brand. as well, the design had to connect to the ethos of the ‘project xoco 325’ which was developed by DDG partners.

the building of the showroom, the ‘xoco 325’, is a collection of 21 residences on west broadway, which has been re-developed from a former 19 century chocolate factory. matching soho’s evolution from an industrial district to an upmarket manhattan destination, the ‘xoco 325’ features a dramatic cast-aluminum façade. adding to this, its vertical gardens hang over a glass curtain wall that elegantly references the district’s visual character in a more modern method.
