Discover the Stockholm neighbourhood that inspired our statement cat-eye wayfarer frame Södermalm


Johan & Nyström Concept Store is the perfect destination for anyone looking to learn more about the art of coffee, or just simply looking to enjoy a good cup.

Founded by a group of friends back in 2004 with the goal to “convey our craft and to roast tastier, more fun and sustainable coffee”, this iconic roastery is the pinnacle of speciality coffee roasting in Sweden.

This impressive 2,500 square meters of Art Nouveau former industrial building, has been converted into an impressive exhibition space, showcasing world-renowned photographers. The building is also home to the worlds best museum restaurant: Paul Svensson's Conscious Cuisine.

One of the largest spaces for contemporary photography, Fotografiska features 4 major exhibitions per year - and around 15-20 smaller events - including concerts, talks and photography courses.


Second Sunrise focuses on denim and quality products which have been made to last. Douglas Luhanko and Kerstin Neumüller's new venture combines a retail space specialising in "American work wear filtered through Japan" with a denim repair workshop and creative meeting space.

The couple first opened Unionville to provide well crafted and considered outerwear. The philosophy still remains the same - taking influence from fine artisanal craft and the world’s best quality denim, as they desire to bring a more considered and down to earth shopping experience to the Södermalm community.

With its large windows, stylish wooden tables and leisurely atmosphere, this neighbourhood cafe has earned the name of best breakfast in town. On weekends people come from all over town to enjoy Pom & Flora fresh and healthy menu but on weekdays the café is home to SoFo-locals.


Established in 2008, Papercut is an independent retail store selling handpicked and unique selections of magazines, books and stationary.

Stacked with underground publications from floor to ceiling this is the ultimate store to get your fix of art, literature, design or film.
