Ace Hotel NYC, 20 West 29th Street

In Midtown Manhattan the wholesalers slowly leave the place to trendy boutiques like Maison Kitsuné. In a couple of year Midtown Manhattan will be the next spot for the trendsetters. Ace choose the heart of this district to open one of their hotel where the history of a building meets design and arts.

At Ace NYC I like the use of (what it seems to be) Akzidenz-Grotesk font for the signings. I like the graphic design feeling that Roman & Williams, the firm which design the interiors, gave to this place.

It is all about typo.
