At a clothing store in Kofu, Japan, a geometrical ceiling installation forms a unique lattice roof that separates the shopping area and ‘void’ space. Designer Chikara Ohno says since the space is long and narrow with two opposide facades, he wanted to connect the area inbetween.

‘I came up with the idea to tie the two facades through the triangular horizontal void above the lattice,’ says Ohno. ‘Below the lattice is the shop, and above is void space. I just wanted to make the best use of the premises.’

The V-shaped lattice is made of painted steel pipe and is suspended from the ceiling without supporting columns – a challenge, according to the designer. Its lowest point is 1350 mm from the floor, and it stretches to 3000 mm at its height.

The lattice hangs low and doubles as a display case for clothing hangers, though there are openings for people to comfortably shop without bumping their heads. Ohno says he feels the installation ‘softens the experience of shopping.’
