Japanese design studio Nendo has designed the interiors for a small clothing shop, Indulgi in Kyoto, Japan. Following is a description from the designer, “The deep, narrow space has good sightlines,but this can be dangerous, too: a shop can look messy and the interior space simply uninteresting if visitors can see all its products in one glance.
We decided to add shielding elements to create a space that could never be seen in its entirety, one in which different elements appear and disappear from view, changing customers’ experience of the shop as they move about it. Walls create an over-strong sense of pressure, and the space already contained a number of doors, so we added even more doors to it.”
