note et silence. mint Kobe
' Humor ' and ' Playfulness' were the keys when we started this project, and we defined the shop as a stage, customers as actors / actresses, and the interior as a stage setting.
UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
note et silence is a select shop, which newly opened in Kobe, a port city in Kansai area.
Based on the idea of Stage Setting, we aimed to create a versatile space and we made a box shaped wall, which can be moved to a certain extent. If the box is placed near the entrance, it creates a corridor and the space becomes very aggressive atmosphere.
If it is placed at the back of the shop, it creates a bigger space within the shop. With the effect of the box, the shop space can be configured for different scenes like a gallery.
