The Rimowa Flagship Store in Tokyo’s vibrant shopping district Ginza combines high-quality Western design with the rich cultural traditions of Japan. Inspired by Japanese rock gardens, especially the famous Zen garden Ryoan-ji, sweeping, dynamic lines run through the store, inviting the customer to embark on a sensual journey of discovery. Along the way, customers encounter the baskets – woven room dividers made of filigree oak wood slats and handmade Japanese paper (washi) that connect the two floors vertically. The overall impression of the shop is inviting and minimalistic. Subtle contrasts between flowing and angular, as well as selected materials, such as warm wood and cool metal, create a calm background for the focused presentation of the legendary Rimowa suitcases.
