Although well-established in Japan for many years, Paul Smith lacked a notable presence in Osaka, the country’s second largest city. Well, that was yesterday. Finding a premium location smack on Mido-suji dori, a bustling tree-lined artery in the heart of the city, the British luxury brand rubs shoulders with peers from the industry, such as Hermès, Commes des Garçons and Louis Vuitton. The Paul Smith flagship store occupies a 213 sqm. (2,293 sq.ft.) on the ground floor of a 12-storey office building and the façade has been especially modified and now features faux glazed blue bricks and both a doorway and windows framed by shiny green metal.

In contrast to Western culture, furniture does not have much of a presence in traditional Japanese architecture and is extremely understated. At a recent exhibition jointly curated by Kengo Kuma and his long-term collaborator Time & Style, held in the manufacturer’s Amsterdam showroom, the architect explains, ‘The transparent nature of traditional Japanese architecture avoids heavy walls and uses slim pillars to support roofs, under which is an open-plan space. Paper-covered sliding windows called shoji act as walls, and even then these are often left open. Similarly, thin sliding doors divide interior spaces.’
