note et silence. store by Specialnormal, Kobe – Japan

October 15th, 2012 by retail design blog

note et silence is a select shop, which newly opened in Kobe, a port city in Kansai area. The shop holds three original brands, which appeal to sophisticated women with a sense of humor and with a playful mind. ‘ Humour ‘ and ‘ Playfullness’ were the key when we started this project, and we defined the shop as a stage, customers as actors / actresses, and the interior as a stage setting.

‘ Floating box’
Wall, Floor and Ceiling are the main elements to create a space. Based on the idea of ‘ Stage Setting’, we aimed to create a versatile space and we made ‘ Wall ( = Box ), can be moved to a certain extent. If the box is placed near the entrance, it creates a corridor and the space becomes very aggressive atmosphere. If it is placed at the back of the shop, it creates a bigger area within the shop. With the effect of the box, the space can be configured for different scenes like a gallery.
