Domicile Tokyo store by Yoshiro Nishi a.k.a. Yoshirotten, Tokyo – Japan

September 8th, 2017 by retail design blog

The retail scene in Tokyo is full of surprises. It evolves at the speed of light, churning out new shops on a daily basis. One of the latest gems to have popped up in the city’s Harajuku shopping district is Domicile Tokyo. The boutique is an initiative of Japanese rapper and cultural scion Ryuzu, and occupies a building that was formerly a traditional Japanese residence. It comes with properly laid out front garden replete with a fountain, but that’s where the venue’s traditional traits abruptly end. As a well-connected artist in the Japanese capital’s creative scene, the rapper tapped cult graphic artist and art director Yoshiro Nishi a.k.a. Yoshirotten to design the interior.

Fully stripped back, it now features the structure’s original wooden beams and concrete flooring, using only red transparent sliding doors as a pop of colour. Somewhat underwhelmed? don’t be. Domicile Tokyo stocks a range of highly niche streetwear brands, including items from the A$ap Rocky’s design collective Awge, infinite archives, pleasures, know wave, and frog skateboards. And that’s not all. The domicile Tokyo store will also regularly host pop-up stores, and the first one is dedicated to gateway, a project developed by Lqqk Studio from New York City.
