Die Sesselei has found a new shop location in Hamburg’s famous “Chilehaus”. In the part of the building at Messberg 2, this specialist company offering furniture and professional advice to health-conscious buyers of chairs, recliners, sofas and beds has taken 805 m² of retail space on two stories. This spring the company will vacate its temporary premises at Überseering 19 in City North and return to Hamburg’s Altstadt district. The new address is close to Steinstrasse, where Die Sesselei first opened shop.
The new retail space in the “Chilehaus” has three large shop windows and is highly visible from the busy Willy-Brandt-Strasse and the Speicherstadt Promenade.
forms part of Hamburg’s “Kontorhaus” or counting house district. In conjunction with Hamburg’s Speicherstadt (historic warehouse district) it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in July 2015.
It was designed by Fritz Höger for Henry B. Sloman, a merchant; construction work started in 1922 and the building opened on 1st April 1924. In 1993 the ten-storey building offering office and other commercial space was acquired by Union Investment for the portfolio of its open-end property fund UniImmo: Deutschland.

(GPP), brokered the rental agreement for this retail space in Hamburg-Altstadt.
