Max Mara opens its new flagship store in Tokyo

fashion moments

Designed by Andrea Tognon Architecture, it’s the second store in the luxury area of Omotesando and Aoyama.
With a surface of 400 square meters, the tower perfectly embodies the city's ever-evolving fight against gravity. The streamlined structure soars toward the sky like an imposing pagoda, upholding pergola-like floor slabs clad in brushed metal with a cloudy finish, blending into the sky.

The interior design features embrace a lightness and a contemporary allure. Flooring in red travertine recalling italianism and monumental architecture with cement and carpet carefully laid out in alternating geometric patterns, create surfaces rich in contrast, warm and welcoming. A dynamic space, designed to host product focuses, which evolves constantly, providing a
new engaging shopping experience.
