hisaaki hirawata + tomohiro watabe of japanese practice moment design has completed a clothing retail store for the iconic
fashion brand 24 issey miyake located in sapporo, japan. flexibility and modularity were of utmost priority to quickly modify
the retail floor for the transient seasonal displays. accommodating for the ease of the frequent changes was the starting point for
the design while supporting the brand’s fresh identity was equally important.



adjustable rack and shelf



one hundred rectangular panels recessed into the walls can be opened into impromptu surfaces for handbags while poles can be
inserted into discrete perforations for clothing racks. each one is numbered allowing employees to remotely control which are opened
with a digital system. the merchandise becomes the central focus while generating a perpetually dynamic and lively atmosphere.
