wonderwall已经完成其位于伦敦的japan house（日本屋）的室内设计，这也是品牌推出的第三个实验中心（另外两家分别位于巴西圣保罗和美国洛杉矶），旨在通过展览、活动、零售空间和餐饮展示日本。伦敦中心分布在建筑的三层中，新中心的设计遵循了首席创意总监kenya hara的总体设计原则——“向全世界推介最正宗的日本美学与感受力”。
wonderwall has completed the interior of the japan house in london, one of the three experiential hubs (sao paolo and los angeles being the other two locations) developed to showcase the country through exhibitions, events, retail, and food & drink areas. the london location expands over three floors designed according to the same overall guidelines as defined by chief creative director kenya hara ‘to introduce authenticated japanese beauty and sensibilities.’
the japan house, led by the the country’s ministry of foreign affairs, aims to nurture a deeper appreciation and understanding of japan within the international community. wonderwall has developed the london location with a shop and café stand on the ground floor, a restaurant and bar on the first floor, and multipurpose hall, gallery, and library on its lower ground floor.
drawing from the tokonoma, (an alcove in traditional japanese guestrooms) the two floors that contain the shop and the gallery echo the country’s unique aesthetics, while the atmosphere of the rooms changes according to the various elements and events taking place inside. for the restaurant and bar of the first floor, the japanese firm has based the design on the concept of the doma, a traditionally a semi-outdoor space with earthen floor and a kitchen that is often found close to a house’s entrance area.drawing from the unique qualities of the doma, the restaurant amplifies and expands the moments of socializing, dining and enjoying each other’s company.
