160 Old Foundry in The Heart of Manhattan
Manhattan is not the obvious destination to travel a few centuries back in time. Having been born in Switzerland I would first think of France, England, or Italy. Yet there is such a destination here, and though it is slightly low-key it is well-known among the elite of the design world.
Imagine now walking in one of the most expensive neighborhoods in the world and coming head-to-head with a metalwork foundry.
Foundries have a hard time surviving in the western world because of the mass production trend, but here is one housed across several floors in the trendy Greenwich Village of Manhattan.
