Independent German eyewear designer and manufacturer, Mykita, has opened its newest store in Munich.

The new premises is a heritage-listed corner building previously used as a gallery space and is close to Maximilianstrasse, Munich’s high-end shopping district.

Mykita’s founder, Moritz Krueger, said: ‘To open in this stunning and strategically important location confirms how much we have achieved over the last decade and a half.’

The new store has been opened in partnership with high end Munich-based optician, Leidmann.

Munich-based architectural firm Stephanie Thatenhorst collaborated with Mykita on the new location’s interior design, creating a feeling of grandeur through oversized arched windows and doorways, marble surfaces and custom furniture. Frames are presented on an all-white wall, a modern design element that contrasts with the classical setting.
