This is the interior design for a fashion shop in Osaka, Japan. By sanding old furniture, I exposed the white foundation, and accordingly I designed new furniture, dyeing them ash white to coordinate with the old.


The corner of the checkout counter is cantilevered to prevent clients from hitting their toes. An original lighting D.I.Y sketches guji, the name of shop, with an electric cord that carries the electric current to a small light. With this I tried to show a sense of humor that represents the store.
