designed by japanese practice JP architects, this tokyo-based gift shop selling european sundries is defined by its white gridded pattern that delineates the store’s shelving units, furniture and door frames. the base color of ‘le mistral’ is navy blue, the signature tone of the company that also provides a stark and refined backdrop. at the center of the volume, products can be placed on a table that features markings designed to accommodate each size of display tray. the nature of the plan means that items can be presented in a variety of formats, with the possibility to rearrange the objects daily.
