NEW SHOP & ENVIRONMENT

Located in Shibuya, a trendy area in Tokyo, this restaurant opened upon owner’s request to have a big void for a double height wine cellar, which attracts visitor’s eyes and entertain people downstairs. The cellar symbolizes both global situations and suspension of the time from the past to future, under a theme of “chaos and confidence”. Irregular shaped decoration on the ceiling and camouflage-pattern wall paintings express the “chaos”. Making the most of strong quality of the material, a designer turn the interior so attractive. “Confidence” is embodied in the layout of the interior collaborating with the owner.

To represent subtle and intricate shape of a cloth in the wind, a designer chose wire mesh for this boutique in Marunouchi, Tokyo. He made a lot of samples for it and examined many times. Hanging from the ceiling, the wire net, hand-crafted on the construction site, successfully expresses the movement of the cloth in the air.
High color-temaparature white light shines like natural light. A sculptural table in the center is composed of welded iron rods.
Also, weathered mortar, white-painted rough walls, and salvaged wood floor emphasize the quality of the materials.

With the facade mixing Japanese samurai armor and steam punk, this kimono store has a cafe and the interior is decorated by copper satin paint, chromed studs, paper, wood, and brass incrustation. Display tables look like those in museums, composed of copper stain frame and gray ceramic cubes to represent delicateness and massiveness. The environment of the cafe is based upon upgraded version of Tanizaki’s “In Praise of Shadow”. Mat sumi black bench with seats glossy purple colors in gradation, textiles representing sky of Ginza, and pattern of lattice work on walls quated from that of ancient Japanese ballgame Kemari.
All objects including kimono and vessels there look more beautiful with effects of shadows.
