Are you guys who like shopping and fashion very much? So this is the right time because this time I would like to review about a fashion store. Many store design has reviewed before, but in this moment is different, I would review the contemporary one, a contemporary store called the Lucien Pellat-Finet Shinsaibashi which is based in Japan. So give it a break!
As I said before, this store is located in Japan, precisely located in Osaka, Japan. It is designed by the Kengo Kuma & Associates. Covers area for about 133 square meters, it is done in 2009. This shop is designed under the order of Coronet Corporation as the client.
Looking down the street of the luxurious brand shop, in the briefing meeting at Shinsaibashi, Lucien asked for a soft and warm space, rather than icy. As the response of this briefing idea, the architect proposed a plan to realize the softness of the Lucien Pellar-Finet cashmere in the architecture. A ‘vegetable wall’ was born in seeking the balance between the cost and the creation of the various organic patterns. It makes of the structural plywood with the two kind’s width and three types of the aluminum connectors.
Now let me talk about the store interior design, it is where the contemporary feeling is appear. From jus beside, the interior is like that’s pentagons and parallelogram which are repeated and extended further in the interior like a cave. All of these are creating a honeycomb-like interval space with the lots of the different cells.
Each cell in the wall has become practical fittings by changing the cutting of the sections. It is like a shelf or box to place the products. Rather than setting in an individual wall or the furniture separately in the store design. I guess that the architect wanted to create a single, sequenced and functionally wall which covers the entire space. This vegetable wall grows like a liana, from the café in the basement towards the boutique on 1st and 2nd floor and the library on the top floor, and among the ‘vines’ come out cashmeres like fruits born from the plant. It was collaboration between fashion and plant-likened architecture.
Well that’s all I have got about the contemporary store which is located in Japan. I always love the architecture ideas in Japan, also the culture. It used to impressive and attractive. Ok guys, have a nice day then!
