The shop is a serene oasis of polished timber, glass and furnishings similar to other Louis Vuitton stores across the planet.

We planned the exhibition for visitors to enjoy by hanging many wind chimes from the canopy like fruits from a tree blowing in the wind from a blower and chiming in the background. On the first floor, the wooden framework creates a wall of nested chimes where each chime can be observed individually in detail.
Conceived by Emmanuelle Moureaux for the Shinjuki Creators Festa 2013, ’100 colors’–whose title indicates the number of hues the designer has integrated into the work–features more than 840 sheets of paper that are suspended from the ceiling, creating a volume of rainbow colors that float in the air.
The design for this exhibition gallery is themed around the Olympic Games, a space of discovery where people from all over the world gather and meet. The gallery features the-works of 200 artists on the front face of business cards and their contact information written in the back for visitors to take freely.
The ceiling is folded so that the eave thrust to the garden can be a sequence from inside, connecting the room and the outdoor. The unitized bamboos are either in the diameter of 20mm or 40mm. They are skewered in varied density using bolts and nuts. The multiple layers of these differently-pitched bamboos create a grove to connect the Kabukiza theater and the garden.
The flipped-open entrances turn the area around each box into a semi-open communication corner, and functional elements that don’t need to be on display like the photocopier, waste bins and refrigerator can be hidden behind the boxes. Our idea was to make not only the boxes’ interior but also the area around them into an active office environment where people can easily work and interact.
The interior is contemporary with a rustic edge, featuring suspended and built-in wooden shelving, matched with swathes of white walls and ceramic tile flooring. The new Strasburgo store has been conceptualized the store with the urban traveler in mind, so pretty much the savvy kind who’s connected in more ways than one and who knows his fashion from a-z.
For the Coach flagship store in Omotesando, Tokyo, OMA designed a façade of interlocking acrylic display units with a logic that translates to the interior. For the façade, each display unit measures 1800mm by 520mm and is stacked horizontally and vertically in a herringbone pattern. The units frame individual items like bags, busts or mannequins, making each appear precious.
