Moxy Chelsea Hotel sets a new standard for contemporary boutique hotels in New York, being designed by superb Rockwell Group and Yabu Pusherlberg. Located in Manhattan’s historic Flower District, the Moxy Chelsea’s restaurant, lounge and rooftop provide a unique and luxurious escape from the city’s busy streets. The Moxy Chelsea’s interiors combine layers of vibrant colours, materials, patterns and forms, to create a welcoming and dynamic design thus being a highly sophisticated and curated environment fit for both the business and leisure traveller.
The Rockwell Group, created in 1984 by David Rockwell and led by his partners Shawn Sullivan and Greg Keffer. The firm gives a strong importance to innovation and guarantees that every project has the best leadership. Although the firm is based in New York, it has a satellite office in Madrid. The Rockwell Group specialises in a large range of products from hospitality to healthcare projects and even those concerning education.
Yabu Pushelberg was founded in 1980 by the design duo George Yabu and Glenn Pusherlberg, with a focus on interior design that then developed into a multidisciplinary practice that addresses multiple layers of the human experience. With offices in New York and Toronto and a team of more than a hundred creatives and professionals, Yabu Pushelberg designs buildings, interiors, landscapes, lighting, furniture, objects, and graphics with a focus that goes well beyond what things look like, to how they make people feel.
Moxy Chelsea marks the second collaboration between Yabu Pushelberg and Rockwell Group, the designers behind Moxy Times Square.
The Moxy Chelsea Hotel was designed having in consideration younger generations – the millennial gen in specific -, this the hotel forsook room service and a concierge in favour of co-working spaces for guests and non-guests alike, a coffee bar with a grab-and-go breakfast, and lunch and evening items on sale on the ground floor.
The Moxy Chelsea has 350 bedrooms designed by the NYC interior design studio Yabu Pushelberg, creating stylish and highly functional rooms, with floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall windows. Bathrooms are two frosted glass boxes, for the shower and the WC, while the sink is in the bedroom to save space. There’s a wall of pegs in place of a wardrobe, a steamer instead of an iron, storage drawers beneath the bed, and both the table and luggage rack can be hung on the wall when not in use.
The Moxy Chelsea’s dining offers Italian dishes with a New York twist. TAO Group debuts Feroce Ristorante, Feroce Caffè, and Feroce Pizza & Bocce – brand-new dining and drinking concepts in partnership with Francesco Panella of the legendary Antica Pesa in Rome and Brooklyn. Topping off the hotel is The Fleur Room, a glass-enclosed rooftop lounge with panoramic views.
The hotel’s Italian restaurant ‘Feroce‘ consists of a series of beautifully curated rooms that lead to the outdoor terrace, a hidden oasis amongst the foliage for guests to wine, dine and socialise. Injecting a sense of playfulness and colour into the restaurant, collections of apothecary candy jars contain bold coloured Italian sweets, positioned on glass and brass shelving, alongside aperitif and digestif bottles that create an unexpected juxtaposition that sets the tone for the Moxy brand which runs through the entirety of the hotel.
The Fleur Room interiors are comprised of a lively palette of materials. Rough concrete and industrial windows are mixed with polished bronze, warm wall coverings and plush furnishings, merging industrial and chic styles. Subdued indirect lighting both reinforces the spectacular views and heightens the intimacy of the space, while inverted resin pyramids glow with embedded florals, referencing the surrounding Garden District.
