Cibone selects contemporary Japanese crafts and items from international designers and artists who use the store not only as a display but also as a place to feature exhibitions on a regular basis. The space whas then divided into long ‘slices’ parallel to the opening without zoning the spaces into equal sections. In addition a large sliding fixture was installed, inspired by a “Tsuzuki-ma” a Japanese traditional way to connect/divide spaces with a sliding door. The result is a space with multiple layers that can adapt to different scales, from the exhibition hall to modular displays.
