The last waterfront building in DUMBO Brooklyn was acquired in 2013 by New York City real estate development company Alloy Development. Slated to complete this summer, the 42 homes available on the DUMBO waterfront are highly desirable. Surrounded by Brooklyn Bridge Park, the building boasts river views, retail shops, and many other amenities. Alloy chose Rebecca Robertson Interiors to help interested parties visualize the potential of each rental space.
The design team chose Atlas Industries' as4 modular furniture system for the dining room of the model apartment. The configuration of low cabinets appear to float effortlessly above the floor. The cold-rolled steel metal components are seen here with a chemically blackened finish, adding an industrial touch to the warmth of the solid walnut unit. Two decks, placed closely together, display a collection of peppermills, studio pottery, and art books. A stack of 3 drawers and an upper cabinet offers additional storage without crowding the configuration. The end result is a subtle, yet striking.
