Interior design collaboration with Stephanie Thatenhorst
Mykita opens its third shop in Germany in central Munich, close to Maximilianstraße at Am Kosttor 3. A historic listed corner location formerly used as a gallery space, the shop presents the design language and handcrafted eyewear collections from MYKITA in a welcoming luxury atmosphere where historical elements are offset with one-off furnishings and contemporary design accents.
In a different vein from the typical sleek, minimalist tradition of other MYKITA stores, the interior design was a collaborative effort between the Berlin eyewear maker and local architect office Stephanie Thatenhorst: behind the restored façade of the historical 19th century building, oversized arched windows and doorways set a grand tone followed up by the use of luxurious materials, including marble surfaces, bronze mirrors, glass lights and custom-built furniture pieces from Thatenhorst.
Inside, the eyewear collections are extensive, and include the designer collaborations with Maison Margiela, Helmut Lang and Bernhard Willhelm. A Zeiss Vision Center provides comprehensive optical services and the opportunity for a customised optical profile, to perfectly adapt the frame and lens to each customer’s face.
