Ginza Six Editors Vol.4 (Lifestyle)
One pleasure of GINZA SIX can come across new work of designer of world level everywhere. Space constitution of throughout the hall may be unhurried, and there are a lot of shops which we want to walk for feeling such as gallery. We chose boutique which wanted to pay attention to Shops of lifestyle system and design of space from such inside one by one.
Shops that the fourth-floor CIBONE CASE performed spinning out from CIBONE in Aoyama. It becomes shop on the basis of international atmosphere of Ginza while being warm, and making use of the aesthetic sense. As for Belgian new star designer selling here, the chair by Muller van Severen, coloration that was rich in mini-rhythm and unlikelihood with industrial feeling is attractive. It is totally appearance such as modern art.
Brooklyn "Aura chime" by Ladies & Gentlemen Studio of base "Playscape mobiles." It is work of their duos who considers in combination by design by hand in imminent material. This product that simple sound sounds when we shake has element of mobile which they are good at with it, and-style form and color are feelings of the present interior in the 80s, too.
Model that Danish classic brand, flower base of Lyngby Porcelæn are made from the 1930s. With exquisiteness, we arrange how old you are and want to use variation of hue and size. We are attractive even if we even just arrange flower.
Among 3 items described here two for the moment the handling in Japan probably only as for CIBONE. By the way, Shops which treats such a thing abroad is still small portion. In such a meaning, CIBONE is ahead of the times. Furthermore, it is the temporal axis having a long one point of one point that CIBONE is unique, and there is even thing with attachment. The sense of balance that is going to ascertain future constant seller is wonderful.
It is Koichi Futamata to have designed interior of CIBONE CASE. We establish wall with the volume and sliding door-formed shelf and partition off space of wide unique form gently from side to side. Even if choice of material is good and sees finish beautifully, we do not get tired.
Boutique of Valentino who basements are on the first to the fourth floor, and this passes, and holds store. It was this shop when GINZA SIX opened particularly to have been overwhelmed in space. David chipper Field of British architect takes big role, and, as for the interior of VALENTINO of all the countries of the world, the style lets you feel architect who designed the appearance of the whole GINZA SIX facility, good point of affinity with Yoshio Taniguchi now. Wall and floors of boutique are unified in homogeneous gray terrazo (artificial stone), and Carrara marble, brass, oak are used effectively.
Space that displayed the fourth-floor men's shoes. Shelf of wall surface is used in the whole store, and the system is such that we put the upper end on step of wall. It has LED lighting up product built-in, and I am amazed to learn that it is structure that can move to layout in shop from side to side. Even chipper field.
Shelf where we put sample of KOLOR and cuff links of shirt on at corner of the fourth-floor maid toe measure. Most shelves in shop are made of frame and oak of brass, but this wraps shelf board in pure white leather and individualizes KOLOR of handsome form like art object.
Furniture of a series of oaks is original by chipper field, too. It features minimal form like him, and there is chair under the table to be just satisfied. At corner of maid toe measure, we sit down here and exchange order of suit and shirt.
Elevator that it links floor in shop to want you to experience without business. Other than floor of marble, we are made all of brass and are totally like tea-ceremony room of money. Approach to there is done with marble, too.
Historic thing that master hand of Danish furniture design, boe moensen announced lounge chair of black leather in 1963. In space constructed stoically to every corner, we are made to growl at viewpoint to choose thing letting person relax about chair. Of course good-quality sheath classy feeling is consistent and completely harmonizes.
One of the items symbolizing style of VALENTINO, bag of cam star (camouflage X star print). It is overwhelming love and research feeling to fashion to feel to product of this brand, and it reaches lighter like me (we do not usually intend for fashion). For example, camouflage is used with every brand, but print of VALENTINO thinks that there is the most refined originality.
While design of boutique is setting of various items born every season in this way, we overflow in at the same time building-like pleasant feeling. We were not able to introduce, but cannot miss fitting room unified in marble zukumeno stairs and gray. Is the Golden Rule of modern architecture, but can sense the powerful charm bodily that "God dwells in the details"; is perfect; is spotted.
