Open Space Showroom in Japan Brings Nature Indoors

Landscape designer Toshiya Ogino teamed up with Yuko Nagayama & Associates to envision this outstanding open space showroom in Kobe, Japan, for leatherware company Sisiji. It particularly consists of displays for clothing items, which "randomly" hang from metallic support strategically placed near the interior gardens. Clients at Sisiji's can admire jackets and handbags while walking through the gardens.
Yuko Nagayama bends the rules of design, creating an unconventional space. She managed to literally bring nature indoors and make visitors to the showroom feel relaxed.
“The unusual space is defined by a raised steel platform. Mirrored walls at the back expand the showroom visually while concealing a storage area. The elevated floor acts as an auxiliary workspace while defining the functional zones. Folding or cutting into the plate enabled Nagayama to designate distinct seating areas as well as several small gardens made by Ogino from local rocks, plants, and trees.”
