When it came to building KEF Music Gallery Tokyo, we sought out a trusted collaborator. Enter Klein Dytham architecture (KDa). A multidisciplinary design practice known for architecture, interiors, public spaces and installations, KDa has created award-winning spaces for esteemed brands like Cartier, Google, Selfridges and Virgin Atlantic.

In this episode, co-founder Mark Dytham shares the collaborative approach we took to designing the Gallery. He introduces us to the key spaces incorporated within it and shares how our vision was brought to life. We’ve created a showroom that not only inspires visitors to share in the magic of great sound, but return to it too.

Explore KEF Music Gallery Tokyo with us, as Mark guides us through his design process and how he was able to bring each area of the space to life.

Of course, in Tokyo, you’re always trying to make a little bit of a twist, a little bit of an impact, something to catch people’s eyes.”

It’s been a fantastic collaboration with KEF. We’re not just about the big idea, we’re about a lot more depth to the project and working with the KEF team, we’ve managed to develop a series of experiences within the store.”

We want this to be almost like a hub of KEF, where people drop in to see… the latest products, but also the exhibitions, and I think that’s really important to build this community around sound.”

KEF Music Gallery Tokyo

Our 2,000-square-foot retail space in Japan is situated in Aoyama, Tokyo’s central luxury and design district. Housed in a two-storey building, the façade features a colossal three-dimensional interpretation of KEF’s signature Uni-Q driver array, transforming the building into a monumental transparent speaker. Comprising a series of Exploratory and Immersion spaces, guests can discover the latest KEF products and happenings, and enjoy brand immersion sessions with collaborators and creators.
