If The Wing's new SoHo location is any indication, it appears that the women's club understands both our ethos and our aesthetic. Founded in 2016 by Audrey Gelman and Lauren Kassan, The Wing is a network of co-working and community spaces for women inspired by the Women's Club movement of the 19th century.
Replete with jewel-toned furniture, floor-to-ceiling bookshelves, and touches of greenery throughout, the new space at 52 Mercer Street offers all of the design inspiration and three times the amount of space as the Flatiron location. Gelman and Kassan worked with an all-female team of creatives to bring their vision to life, including architect Alda Ly, interior designer Chiara de Rege, and a team of graphic designers led by Emily Oberman at Pentagram.
"Since opening our first space last year, we’ve been overwhelmed with the amount of interest from women looking to join The Wing," says Gelman in a press release. "We're incredibly excited to open the doors to our second home in SoHo and to expand our diverse, talented and passionate community of Wing women. Our mission has always been to create a space for women to advance their pursuits and build community together, and the SoHo opening marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter."
While both locations feature an open floor plan, private nooks, and an airy, light-drenched atmosphere, amenities like rentable phone booths and private offices are unique to the SoHo location. Designed with women's needs in mind, the 10,000-square-foot space includes showers, lockers, a nap room, and a beauty room adorned with custom-made wallpaper by illustrator Joana Avillez and Flat Vernacular's Payton Turner.
