nordiska kompaniet is very much the anchor of stockholm's flouishing luxury retail scene. opened in 1915, it has been an incubator for many high-end brands, and still is a relevant address for shoppers with a penchant for top quality goods. despite a solid footprint in sweden with no less than nine stores, acne studios obviously finds it worthwhile to step up its presence at this leading shopping destination with a fully branded shop-in-shop all its own. located on the department store's women's floor, the retail space measures a sizeable 120 sqm. [1,292 sq.ft.] and features acne studios' updated retail aesthetic. the setting consists of a mosaic of contrasting surfaces, such as stainless steel, linoleum and fluffy carpeting. boosting the ultra-modern vibe even further are the light fixtures – notably the expansive ceiling grid – and the artsy polystyrene furniture pieces by lauded british artist max lamb. the new acne studios shop-in-shop is exclusively dedicated to its women's collection. location: nordiska kompaniet, hamngatan 18-20, second floor [norrmalm].
