After the Civil War, the Panic of 1873, and the rumors of SoHo’s increasingly seedy reputation, New Yorkers decided SoHo was not a fashionable place to live. As residents moved out, the textile industry moved in. The utilitarian elements that define loft space today – exposed brick, stripped down architecture, and open spaces – were simply necessities of the industrial space. Honoring SoHo’s rich industrial history, Danill Alikov’s conceptual artwork uses utilitarian designs that analyze the line between man and machine. With his rough textures, rusted edges, and practical materials, he matches the worn aesthetic that gives the SoHo Apartment its beloved character.
