Kinokuniya Ngee Ann City, Singapore

 

We designed bookstores for the Kinokuniya chain in places ranging from Southeast Asia, Taiwan, Japan, Australia, Dubai and the United States. Each bookstore maintains the distinct corporate identity of Kinokuniya through the use of shared design elements inspired by the Japanese culture yet also incorporates local cultural influences specific to each store. Special ceiling design features are incorporated into the design of each store to make each one unique.

 

為紀伊國屋書店在世界各地設計的許多家店,地點包括東南亞,台灣,日本,澳洲,迪拜和美國。貫通各地區的書店設計,以日本文化為靈感。這成為了紀伊国屋獨特的企業形象。每到一地,設計取材亦特別融入當地的文化,尤其是在天花頂棚的設計,讓每間書店都獨具一格。
