note et silence" Retail shop design in Kobe, Japan
"note et silence" is a Retail shop ( clothes and fashion accessories ), which newly opened in Kobe, a port city in Kansai area of Hyogo, Japan. The shop holds three original brands, which appeal to sophisticated women with a sense of humor and a playful mind.
'Humour' and 'Playfullness' were the keys when interior design studio Specialnormal Inc., commissioned by AMBIDEX Co.,Ltd, started this project. The interior design team 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 the space.
Based on the idea of 'Stage Setting', Specialnormal aimed to create a versatile space and made a moveable 'Wall (= Box), that can, to a certain extent, traverse the space. If the box is placed near the store entrance, it creates a corridor and the space becomes very aggressive atmosphere. When 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.
Floor Area/Space: 82.36m2
Material / Finish: Wall and Ceiling: Acrylic emulsion paint Floor : mortar with clear paint, Cash counter: white urethane paint coating, Table etc : oak with urethane clear paint / brass aging paint.
