Pigment store by Kengo Kuma, Tokyo – Japan

December 5th, 2015 by retail design blog

Japanese company Warehouse Terrada has opened an ‘art supply laboratory’ in Tokyo — a scheme that also serves as a hub connecting manufacturers with emerging local artists. Named ‘Pigment’, the store has been completed by architect Kengo Kuma whose design comprises organic curved surfaces that closely resemble bamboo blinds. Beneath the undulating ceiling, pigments are displayed along the spacious interior walls, grouped according to their color.

The store seeks to act as a catalyst, inspiring young artisans to take up traditional methods of production. Consequently the store provides expert advice on each of its products — a range that includes more than 4,000 different pigments, traditional ‘washi’ paper, and ‘sumi’ ink sticks. Workshops by art professors and supply manufacturers are held regularly, offering knowledge to a wide variety of users, including professional artists as well as students.
