The Cords has an ambitious retail strategy. After opening shops in Stockholm, London, Paris, and Los Angeles, the company has just opened its first New York boutique at 160 Spring Street. (Tokyo is next.) Designed by the Swedish architectural firm In Praise of Shadows, the walls of the Soho shop were tagged with “love” by New York graffiti artist Curtis Kulig, with whom the company plans further projects, collaborations being an important part of the brand strategy.

Shawmut Design and Construction is the General Contractor who has worked on the project.
