A New Home For Australian Brand Song For The Mute

After 13 years, Song For The Mute has opened their first permanent bricks and mortar store in Sydney. At 350 George Street, to be precise.

Designed in partnership with Byron Bay-based Pattern Studio, the interior reflects the brand’s emphasis on creation through abstraction. A heritage listed space, founders Melvin Tanaya and Lyna Ty were forced to be creative when it came to fitting the store out as restrictions prevented any permanent changes or additions to be made. The solution was to embrace the ephemeral nature required.

Taking up pride of place, two modular pods that resemble transition points of bus stops or train stations double as change rooms and display.

The location will also be the launching site for their next collaboration with footwear giant Adidas, with a new drop of sneakers arriving this month.
