Abstract: Let $ H^\infty$ be the Banach algebra of all bounded analytic functions in the unit disk $ \mathbb{D}$. A function $ f\in H^\infty$ is said to be universal with respect to the sequence $ (\frac{z+z_n}{1+\overline{z}_nz})_n$ of noneuclidian translates, if the set $ \{f(\frac{z+z_n}{1+\overline {z}_nz}):n\in\mathbb{N}\}$ is locally uniformly dense in the set of all holomorphic functions bounded by $ \vert\vert f\vert\vert _\infty$. We show that for any sequence of points $ (z_n)$ in $ \mathbb{D}$ tending to the boundary there exists a closed subspace of $ H^\infty$, topologically generated by Blaschke products, and linear isometric to $ \ell^1$, such that all of its elements $ f$ are universal with respect to noneuclidian translates. The proof is based on certain interpolation problems in the corona of $ H^\infty$. Results on cyclicity of composition operators in $ H^2$ are deduced.
