While the Harajuku store emulates a vibrant and youthful atmosphere, its counterpart at Ginza district of Tokyo represents an edgier, urban design.
Also a three-story boutique, the facade is clad in sleek black, illuminated by the reversed ‘D’ lettering of Desigual rebrand icon. In its interiors, LED rods line the ceiling in zig-zag pattern and black mesh. Mimicking an urban factory, this similar design was later implemented in Desigual at Changi, Jewel Singapore.

We consulted city architects and urban landscapers to keep in mind the original architectural integrity of the building.

Beyond working over the facade of the building, the interior forms an oasis when it integrates the same design, blending the sleek style on selected levels while maintaining the structural condition of the building. As the first standalone in the country located in the central tourist spot, the pristine three storey building captures the eye of city dwellers.

Located in Senayan City, Indonesia, is a newly conceptualised Rimowa store putting exquisite selection of luggage on display.
