When designing a flagship store in Tokyo for one of the most traditional British brands, Mackintosh, Japanese interior design studio WONDERWALL took an approach that reflected the brand’s history and commitment to handcrafted techniques and time honoured quality. In one of the most upwardly mobile and fast-paced cities in the world, the Mackintosh store exudes the grandeur and pomp of a past golden age of London. Every surface is a representation of skill and detail, from the panelled walls, the wrought balustrade or the perfectly handsome clothes racks that line the store. Having captured the essence of English sartorial civility in this new Tokyo flagship, WONDERWALL have ensured Mackintosh has a very plum new home in the East.
