Clerkenwell office for Howe

Danish furniture design company HOWE, represented by Cluttons, will come to the UK for the first time, taking a new London HQ at 82 Clerkenwell Road, London EC1.

HOWE, who specialise in contract, bespoke furniture design, will rent the 2,640 sq ft ground and lower ground unit on a 10 year lease on confidential terms. The unit provides HOWE with an office business hub as it prepares to focus on the UK market.

Lars Bruntse, marketing manager at HOWE commented: “HOWE develops, produces and sells dynamic design furniture solutions worldwide. London is a centre for global accounts and the UK is an extremely important market for us, so it is the right time to establish ourselves here.”

Richard Reid, from Cluttons commercial agency team said: “Clerkenwell is one of the most important design hubs in the world and we were delighted to be instructed by HOWE, designer of the iconic 40/4 chair, to find them new premises in this popular area. 82 Clerkenwell Road, with its period features, high volume space and prominent location met the requirement perfectly.”
