The 920 sq ft store at 79 Berwick Street has been designed by Fredrik Nilsby from Dawn of Ideas and features plywood, milled and painted panelling, galvanized steel framework, concrete floors and marble table surfaces.
The brand plans to open further flagship stores in major European cities.
“We have been looking for the right location for around 18 months and when we finally found the unit on Berwick Street it felt perfect,” said founder Anton Sandqvist. “There’s a special vibe in Soho and especially on Berwick Street with all the nice neighbours such as Universal Works, Oliver Spencer and Nudie Jeans to mention a few.”
