ARTS & SCIENCE Aoyama, the flagship store, has a line of ladies clothing, jewellery, fragrance and additional items .
对“ARTS & SCIENCE”这个品牌名字的解读是把于艺术和科学有关的美好事物联系起来。受这一简单哲学的启发，ATTA用几何来进行空间表达，弧线代表艺术之美，直线代表科技之美。商店通过设计表达了生活中的某些哲理——从一楼到二楼，从城市到生活，从直到弯，从灰色到棕色，从石头到木头，从钢铁到黄铜，从冷到暖。
The origin of the name ARTS & SCIENCE is based on the idea that one aesthetic connects all beautiful things from arts to science. Inspired by this simple philosophy, ATTA used the principles of geometry representing the freedom of art, Arc, and the discipline of science, Straight, for the design concept. The store design expresses the connectivity, expansion and continuity of the fundamental elements of life – From the first floor to the second floor, from the city to life, from straight to curved, from grey to brown, from stone to wood, from steel to brass, from cool to warm.
For the exterior, we created a closed private facade while allowing the penetration of sunlight. we demolished a portion of the existing floors and ceilings and created a large oval void penetration that gives the impression of navigation as “1st floor to 2nd floor” instead of “1st floor / 2nd floor”. We believe that the meaning of an interior design can be discovered in the continuity of urban space and life experiences.
