Acne Studios Collaborates with Max Lamb for NYC Flagship

by Kristen Heinzinger


Acne Studios collaborated with furniture and interior designer Max Lamb for its global flagship on Madison Avenue on NYC’s Upper East Side, a block away from the Met Breuer. For the expansive 2,400-plus square-foot space, Lamb designed bronze furniture, including a desk, benches, and stools, as well as custom rugs that were hand-dyed in his studio in London. As for the key features? The store is decorated with gold accents, a tone exclusive to this space, and has metal interior walls, fittings in aluminum that were electrostatically gilded, a black asphalt floor, and structural pillars dotted with semi-precious colored stones. The store is entirely wrapped in glass to give an inside look and a gallery-like feel. A partition separates the public front from the back which will hold the ready-to-wear, denim, and accessories.

“For me, it was important to elevate the store design into something spectacular since the location demands it in a way,” said Jonny Johansson, Acne Studios creative director. “And, therefore, I went for gold. Classic, but still in the universe of Acne Studios, it’s like a local store on a global stage.”
