inside its ginza six shopping center boutique, forte_forte has used travertine as an expressive material made by multiple surfaces, applying it to the cash desk, a table, and on the backdrop wall. the surface of the wall comprises the material in large slabs, dotted with pieces of polished brass and colored mosaic glass produced by in an old venetian foundry. adjacent to the travertine surface, a wall of luminescent and metallic tones, embellished through the application of gold leaf, encloses an intimate dressing room and a small service stock, defining the depth of the space.forte_forte opens brass, travertine + gold leaf boutique in tokyo



evoking the unique spirit of the brand, the store’s environment is designed to transmit a gentle, affirmative, delicate character, feminine and strong in its lightness. recurring spatial elements, such as a hanging brass piece that resembles a hand-drawn sign, as well as the brass clothing racks constitute the brand’s trademark objects that can be found in every forte_forte boutique. forte_forte opens brass, travertine + gold leaf boutique in tokyo forte_forte opens brass, travertine + gold leaf boutique in tokyo forte_forte opens brass, travertine + gold leaf boutique in tokyo
