NEW ARRIVALS: Werkstatt München

New hand crafted jewelry from Werkstatt München now available at SONG.

Saturday, 09.06.2018



Aage and Kasper Würtz are an internationally sought-after father and son team of studio ceramists from Denmark.  Würtz ceramics — typically made of stoneware, occasionally of porcelain — possess a leading-edge 21st century aesthetic, yet each piece is created completely by hand, using mostly ancient wheel-turning and glazing methods. All in all, the Würtz style is simultaneously contemporary in design and archaic in the crafting. It’s been described as timeless but is also future-oriented in the way it supersedes both heavily floral traditional fine china dinner sets and early 21st century minimalist white faience.

     Artist Kentaro Yamada in collaboration with perfumer Euan McCall created Neandertal Perfume. This fragrance incorporates historically and culturally significant natural raw materials. Neandertal Perfume imagines the life they could have fulfilled whilst raising questions of our own past and future. One, a darker, smokier more animalic interpretation of the concept and another brighter facet of the theme containing higher levels of lighter, delicate and fresher materials.

   Song Song presents: Luncheon, “Der aus dem Schrank springt”, a new work by Bernhard Hausegger (b. 1957, Graz, lives and works in Vienna).This is the artist’s first exhibition with the gallery.The installation, created to be viewed from an outside perspective through a window glass, reveals a sculptural habitat created by the artist.Hausegger’s artistic practice is guided by a certain economy, renouncing smooth finishing.His material grade is never embellished, the steps of production remain visible and traces of previous owners are still clinging to the oftentimes recycled materials. Aside from references immanent to art, the logic of his sculptural practice aims to establish an architectural scenic quality, simultaneously providing its indwellers housing, pedestal and stage.

Introducing: TOOGOOD


         Sisters Faye and Erica Toogood were raised amid the furrowed fields of the English countryside. Their grandmother was a tailor who, during the War, made underwear out of parachutes.  Each garment takes inspiration from traditional workwear, transforming the idea of a uniform into a mark of individuality.
Sewn inside is an identification document, which traces its manufacture by crediting the designers and makers, with a space for the new owner's name to be added in, encouraging a sense of connection to the chain of creation.

Myung il Song for Lobmeyr

 "My intention with this design was to create a jewel-like vessel for the champagne, that felt like a jewel inside the hand. I also enjoy the way it sits on a table; it is feminine and substantial, and it refracts the colours of the champagne almost like a chandelier does the light."

Just in time for Christmas: Comme des Garcons new fragrances

NEW PERFUMES from Comme des Garcons

Monocle Scent One Hinoki

The inspiration for this fragrance comes from a perfectly still, slightly chilly spring morning spent soaking in a tub at the Tawaraya in Kyoto.

It pulls together our memory of the mosses and trees outdoors and sharp notes of the boxy, hinoki tub.

Monocle Scent Two Laurel

"We wanted to capture the same smell and sensation enjoyed while staying with friends in Batroun, Lebanon. It's warm, inviting and at times a little sharp - just like the country." says Monocle editor in chief Tyler Brûlé

Blue Encens

A bold fusion of mystical incense and
crushed Artemisia contrasted with blazing
frozen spices.

Blue Santal

An iced, cooling Australian sandalwood 
accompanied with warm pine notes and
sharp juniper berries.

Play Black

Design by not designing.
No design is design.
The prototype is strong.
Absence of concept is creation.

Luxe Pyramid

In the Ganjam district of the state of Orissa in India is found one of the finest examples of the mythical flower champaca, a primitive flowering plant belonging to the magnolia family. Famous for being used in Hindu ceremonies and by Balinese dancers, champaca keeps its fragrance long after having been picked.

Cologne series 4: Vettiveru

18th Century alchemy back by popular demand

Italian Bergamot, Cardamon Oil, Neroli Oil,

Vetiver of Haiti, Cedarwood, Musk.

Incense series 3: Avignon, Jaisalmer, Kyoto, Zagorsk
Incense, to make one dream of a spiritual
journey across the world's historical centres.
An evolution of time and space.

Perfumes from WienerBlut

 Presenting the Belle Epoque Edition, six new fragrances from Vienna perfume-maker WienerBlut. 

 WienerBlut came to life in 2008 in Vienna.  The original program was based on the deconstruction and revitalization of historic formulas. 

 The bottles of the Belle Epoque Edition are made by a glass-blowing process invented in the late 19th Century.  The artisanal production gives each bottle its own unique charm.

The caps of this series are made of bakelite.  Bakelite is a non-petroleum precursor of modern plastic.  It was valued in the Belle Epoque for its smooth touch and warm feel.  Due to the cost of production, it is seldom found anymore, and original examples are highly prized. 

The perfumes of WienerBlut vary in character, from pop, fresh citrus to dramatic and brooding.  But one thing they all share is an abundance of natural, raw materials, which evolve uniquely in reaction to the chemistry of each individual. 

Wednesday, 19.11.2014

Opening Tomorrow: Hillebrand van Kampen

Song Song is pleased to present an exhibition of paintings by Hillebrand van Kampen (b. 1945, The Netherlands).  

For his second exhibition at Song Song, van Kampen presents paintings of rustic interiors.  The paintings are made on embroideries that the artist collects from flea markets throughout Holland and Belgium.  The embroidery functions as the painting’s ground, and it structures the image.

The paint, by turns, articulates or erases the embroidered forms: the viewer looks in on a conversation between the painter and a modest little corner of history.

Let Them Believe

Friday, 26.09.2014

Friday, 3 October: Paul Harnden Exhibition Opening

Song Song is proud to present an exhibition of photographs by renowned clothing- and furniture-maker Paul Harnden, together with a 16mm film produced by Harnden and Stuart Pitkin.  
The short film Let Them Believe (2014), by Paul Harnden and Stuart Pitkin, will be screened at 19:30 and 20:30.
Both artists will be present at the event.


Let everything that’s been planned come true
Let them believe
And let them have a laugh at their passions
Because what they call passion actually is not some emotional energy
But just a friction between their souls and the outside world
And most important let them believe in themselves
Let them be helpless like children
Because weakness is a great thing and strength is nothing
When a man is just born he is weak and flexible
When he dies he is hard and insensitive
When a tree is growing it is tender and pliant
But when it is dry and hard it dies
Hardness and strength are death’s companions
Pliancy and weakness are expressions of the freshness of being
Because what has hardened will never win.

Men's Brogues by LA Flaunting

Friday, 11.04.2014

LA Flaunting for SONG

As a shoemaker, Leonard Kahlcke has developed an approach for classic men’s footwear that is deeply rooted in tradition, but without being based on self-conscious quotations of vintage styles, nor on a cult of orthodox conservatism.  The shoes are original without abandoning their roots, of the moment and for a lifetime.  

Sabine G Italian Production Workshop

Friday, 28.03.2014

At SONG: Sabine G

While researching techniques of ancient workmanship, Sabine G encountered a medieval box from the 12th Century.  Its ornamentation was the inspiration for her debut jewellery collection, which has attracted a celebrity following that spans all the way from Rihanna to Celine Dion, and which is available at SONG.

Dresses from the SONG SS14 Collection

Friday, 21.03.2014

SONG: Collection

Song is proud to present its first eponymous collection, for Spring 2014.  The focus has been on simplicity, color, and the quality of materials, especially a rustic silk from Germany that has the look and feel of linen.

A Tunic Dress from Dosa

Friday, 07.03.2014

SONG Presents: Dosa, SS/14 Collection

The clothes and products of Dosa — a brand presented this season for the first time at SONG — come out of a California organic (“Bio”) culture that has no direct equivalent in the German-speaking world.  California Bio has a lighter flavor; its politics emphasises the primacy of personal fulfillment, and its spirituality assumes a corporal sensuality. These qualities may trace back to the region’s  hippy movement, or to the strong influence that Asia has had there.  In any case, they are part of what distinguishes California Bio from the patently Protestant Germanic variation.   

In Dosa, this distinctly California style of Bio finds unique expression in a design sensibility that is also of the highest sophistication.  The results are collections of clothes and home wares that make bio-ethics feel modern, and turn responsibility into pleasure.

SONG SONG Exhibition Opening: Esterhazy, 13 March, 19-21h

Five years ago, Mathis Esterhazy purchased an industrial embroidery machine at a trade fair in Switzerland.  The machine’s original purpose was to embroider small logos on an industrial scale, with thousands of repetitions.  With much trial-and-error experimentation, Esterhazy has been busy repurposing the device through custom computer algorithms and mechanical modifications to achieve large-format, tapestry-like images, an ongoing work in progress.  The new techniques that he has developed along the way are used in creating objects that are unique but also industrial,
personal but mechanical,
expressive but useful:
works of art that work as furniture.

Mathis Esterhazy (b. 1958) lives and works in Vienna.

Dries van Noten Spring 2014 Runway show, Paris

Friday, 21.02.2014

Dries van Noten SS 2014 at SONG

Later this month, an exhibition on the work and world of Dries van Noten will open at the Musee les Arts Decoratifs, in Paris.  The show will be viewable there throughout the spring. (The catalog from the exhibition will soon be available at SONG.) 

In the exhibition Mr. van Noten attempts to represent the singularly expansive range of cultures and artefacts that have influenced his brand over the years.  To achieve this aim required no small effort, and much time in the museum’s enormous archives.  

From this process the designer derived his new, current collection, which reproduces and remixes fabrics from the history of the French empire into a swirl of black silk and darkly blooming flowers.

Neri Firenze

Friday, 14.02.2014

Handbags from Neri Firenze

100% Florentine craftsmanship: the idea behind Neri Firenze is to revive an authentic “Made in Italy” ethic, using old techniques and machines to produce unique pieces of excellent quality, durability and to keep alive the original  traditions.  

Mathis Esterhazy

Friday, 31.01.2014

Stacked Dining Chairs from Mathis Esterhazy

Realized in stainless steel and with an embroidered seat, the design for this chair originates in the 1980s, when Mathis Esterhazy was an artist exhibiting in the Galerie Pakesch, in Vienna, and collaborating with Franz West.  

Back then, the seat was composed of strips of metal in two distinct patterns. In this new version Esterhazy evokes that design as a ghost, or shadow, realized in an embroidery technique of his own devising. 

Extremely clean and low-profile, the chairs come in a set of ten that stack into a sculptural form.  The included pedestal rolls, to facilitate easy distribution around the table or positioning of the stack. 

Price upon request.

Piet Hein Eek

Friday, 17.01.2014

The Poor Man's Silver Lamp from Piet Hein Eek

Outside of his native Holland, designer Piet Hen Eek is probably best known for his much-imitated “scrapwood” furniture.  But although the work in scrapwood has made him an international design hero, Eek is a remarkably prolific creator who is relentless in developing new ideas and projects, based on whatever production techniques he encounters. 

The Poor Man’s Silver lamp, for example, is his take on the 16th Century process of silvering glass for mirrors and ornamental objects, a technique that we usually associate with antiquary shops more readily than contemporary design.
