Jun Aoki's patterned façade for Louis Vuitton's Tokyo store
A game of lights
Located at the former entrance to the city, the unique design was inspired by the history of the region and its close relationship with the Art Deco movement.
Based on Louis Vuitton's iconic Damier pattern, the 3-D design is derived from abstracted patterns and the decorative motifs of traditional Tokyo. The building changes its appearance like a chameleon, throughout the day the building illustrates its ever-changing display of light and shadow, while at night LED lights, set off the geometric motifs, illuminating the impressive façade.
