Zimmermann is continuing its European retail expansion with the opening of a flagship store in Madrid, Spain in May 2022. It will be the brand’s second Spain location following the opening of its Puerto Banús store in April 2022. The brand will have nine stores in Europe by May 2022.
The Zimmermann Madrid store is designed by Studio McQualter and is approximately 177 square meters. Respecting the history of the 1880’s building by Cristóbal de Lecumberri was forefront of the design, and the original architecture is complemented with a highly detailed new store front. White high gloss walls, exposed services and custom Palladiana flooring add a contemporary contrast to the heritage features in the main retail area. An intimate lounge area is opened with daylight from an internal courtyard with a handwoven carpet and high gloss tan walls, juxtaposing the more voluminous retail space.
The furniture is a mix of design classics and rare vintage pieces from the late 20th century including a Grand Tonalá peacock vase, a George I style chinoiserie side chair and an Ettore Sottsass pendant which hangs in the storefront window. The artwork is a collection from Australian artists including Tom Polo, Emily Ferretti, Evi O, Belem Lett and a sculpture by Glenn Barkley.
“We are so excited to bring Zimmermann to Spain and open our first flagship store in Madrid. Our team has work so hard on this project and I think we have created a space that is really unique and embodies our brand while respecting the beautiful building that the store occupies. I love the mix of vintage furniture and Australian touches through our art selection that live through the space. I will get the opportunity to visit in June and I can’t wait.” Creative Director & Co-Founder, Nicky Zimmermann.
