Closed by 14 oz.

Early in July, Hamburg-based company Closed will open the first Closed store in Berlin-Mitte on Alte Schönhauser Straße in cooperation with 14 oz.

Closed by 14 oz. is a new, individual retail concept: high quality materials and traditional design elements are the basis for the authentic interior. Urban, casual and sophisticated – the Closed collections and the 14 oz. philosophy perfectly complement each other.

Gordon Giers, managing director of Closed GmbH: "We are delighted to be finally opening a Closed Store in Berlin and with 14 oz. we have the best partner on our side. Our many years of experience with Karl-Heinz Müller have shown us that our brands, ideas and concepts harmonise very well and have a high success potential. We are looking forward to working together in this cooperation."

Karl-Heinz Müller, owner and managing director of 14 oz.: "We have already been working very successfully with Closed for four seasons now. The collections are enjoying great popularity amongst our 14 oz. customers, and it is with pleasure that we could register the brand's strong potential for turnover and development. Our businesses are linked by a partnership based on friendship, and the wish arose on both sides to continue expanding the brand and to work together on its development. The Closed by 14 oz. store concept is a public demonstration of our strong connection. We are really looking forward to this successful collaboration."

Berlin company s1 architektur was commissioned with the planning and realisation of Closed by 14 oz. The architects' team Ansgar Schmidt and Henning Ziepke has already accompanied BREAD & BUTTER for many years; the design concept for 14 oz. Berlin is one of the projects with which they have established their reputation.
