the new Issey Miyake store, a 132-year-old Kyoto house


Here at Dezainaa we're obsessed with the Japanese designers and its architecture. So when we have heard that Naoto Fukusama was devising a new project, we start investigate. 

The recognized Japanese designer, most known for creating many Muji's bestseller product, took a memorable Kyoto's townhouse and created the new boutique for Issey Miyake. This kind of construction, called Michiya, turns its tranquil and elegant atmosphere in the perfect scenario to introduce the new clothing collection of the designer born in Hiroshima.  

Now, composed by two different buildings, this store maintains a non-agresive entrance and an open-plan space configured by crumbling all interior walls.
