Acne Studios continues its store initiative with its newest location in Maximiliansplatz, Munich. The 180sqm store follows the codes of the new Acne Studios store concept, using signatures such as stainless steel walls and bespoke fittings and furniture to create an individual destination. The space is like a reflection of the contemporary Munich today, mixing innovation with tradition.
The large, light filled location is viewed through a series of windows, the store itself acting as if a window display. Contrasting textures are key, with both stainless steel walls and concrete reflected in a mirrored corner box that houses the fitting rooms. Bespoke furniture has been created for the store by long term collaborator Max Lamb. A large mirror leaning against a wall and stainless steel rails on wheels contribute to the purposefully improvised feel.
As with each new Acne Studios store, the décor feels as if it has been placed in the location. Here, the original ceiling can be seen through the bespoke LED light fixtures, which run in straight lines to emphasise the breadth of the space. This is the fourth Acne Studios store in Germany, following its Potsdamer Straße location in Berlin which opened in October 2015.
