thinking mu pops up in barcelona


On Barcelona‘s vibrant Rambla de Catalunya, fashion brand Thinking Mu opens a new pop-up store with minimalistic, gallery-like interiors by Spanish designer Isern Serra and his team. This space breathes life into the ethos of the sustainable company by drawing influences from its motto, ‘Por amor al arte,’ or ‘for the love of art.’ Through sculptural design objects, collaborations with local artists, and partnerships with other Barcelona-based brands, the spaces unfold to combine a trend-setting gallery and contemporary retail interior captured here by photographer Salva López.

isern serra draws from the brand’s philosophy


The design team, led by Isern Serra, sought to create a flexible space for Thinking Mu that could easily adapt to both current and future collections. This current collection reflects the brand’s commitment to passion-driven endeavors, a message echoed by the opening of this location along Rambla de Catalunya, one of the most vibrant streets in Barcelona. Inside the space, a dialogue between design, craft, and function infuses each displayed object with a distinctive character. Thus, the project serves as a canvas for the brand’s narrative, treating each piece as an artwork. The brands and artists displayed as part of the collection include Rowse, GIGI Studios, Ölend, Deren Rice, and Alejo Palacios.

raw materials and modularity


The team behind Thinking Mu advocates for natural and ecological manufacturing, a principle deeply ingrained in the brand’s history and design philosophy. This interiors project by Isern Serra translates this ethos into the physical realm, employing natural and organic materials that impart a raw, human essence to the space. By embracing raw materials, the design underscores Thinking Mu’s authenticity and environmental consciousness. The pop-up shop, designed to operate for three months, features a modular and transportable design using wooden and metal furniture. Each piece is crafted to be replicated in other spaces and cities across Europe. This intentional design decision empowers the brand to transport its unique identity to multiple locations in the future.
