Seven years since the opening of the first Australian HAY store on Crown Street in Sydney, we are so excited to expand with the launch of our second Australian retail space in one of Melbourne’s most vibrant and creative districts just north of the CBD.

Nestled on the corner of Johnston and Napier streets in Fitzroy, the premium 160m2 HAY Melbourne store is managed and operated by Cult Design, and brings a full retail experience of the world of HAY to Melbourne design lovers.

Curated through an Australian design lens, the store features a vibrant exterior mural by local artist Jasmine Mansbridge and stand-out retail counter designed by leading Australian industrial designer Adam Goodrum in collaboration with plastic recycling company Defy Design.

Much like its flagship store in Copenhagen, HAY Melbourne delights visitors with an open plan, laid out as an apartment, offering a wide selection of furniture and accessories, from sofas to lighting, textiles and glassware.

New releases in-store include the Rey chair by Bruno Rey, Pao Portable Lamp by Naoto Fukasawa and Balcony outdoor range by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, alongside collection bestsellers such as the About A Chair, Mags Sofa, Colour Crates and Palissade range.

HAY Melbourne is now open at 176 Johnston Street, Fitzroy VIC 3066.

HAY was founded in 2002 with the ambition to create contemporary furniture that uses sophisticated industrial manufacturing to satisfy the needs of modern living. HAY Melbourne is now open at 176 Johnston Street, Fitzroy VIC 3066.
