The store occupies a six-story building with a façade clad in 900 sqm. (9,688 sq.ft.) of silver panels that collectively mimic Bottega Veneta‘s trademark intrecciato technique. In slight contrast, the store interior includes nods to Japanese culture, featuring local elements, such as Kyoto White plaster, Tamo timber, and a local Japanese rock that was used in the Edo era, across the 800 sqm. (8,611 sq.ft.) retail space.
And obviously, there’s plenty of Italian elements too by way of various kinds of Italian marble, captured mostly by display tables and cabinets, and both furnishings by Giò Ponti and Gianfranco Frattini, two greats of Italian furniture design, and pieces of Bottega Veneta‘s very own home collection.
