There is no need to introduce the coffee company giant Starbucks. What is worth mentioning and what sets them apart from other massive international chains of stores is their attention to the contemporary design trends and their approach to interior solutions. Where other tend to prefer uniformity, Starbucks is willing to step out of it. Recently, after building one of their stores out of shipping containers, they contacted architects of the Kengo Kuma and Associates in order to create something unique for their new Starbucks Coffee Shop in Tokyo, Japan.
The resulting design does not fail to captivate. A three dimensional structure, partially slipping out of the closed space was created utilizing wood as the main material. The wooden planks are stacked onto each other neatly and evenly. One question that will probably remain unanswered – who will be in charge of dusting this intricate sculpture?
