On the site of Matsuzakaya in Ginza 6 Chome, the complex facility,”GINZA SIX” opened as a largest scale facility  than other department stores in April 20, 2017! The “Life At It Best” is the concept of this shopping mall, and  it is a place where all the brands and foods from all over the world are gathered.

The Logo with a strong vision has an impact, the simple exterior that appearance incorporating “Wa.” Although, the interior is a western style design, but  it also incorporates “Wa” here.

It is the place where to discover, the start point, meeting point  and creating as a place where people and town connect to culture again.

First of all, let`s pay attention to the appearance and arts!

6 Global Luxury Brands Decorate the Front Entrance Of “GSIX”! What Is the Store Concept Each Store Has?

The luxury brands that decorate the front entrance are: DIOR, VALENTINO, CÉLINE, FENDI, SAINT LAURENT and VAN CLEEF & ARPELS! The brand slogan "Where Luxury Begins”; when they think about what is the “New Luxury” is, they named it as the reason for wanting to be a place to keep learning and searching for answers. Lets look how each brands has its own distinctive interior and exterior!

■DIOR

The exterior expresses a unique design veil that evokes the clattering noise. The simple interior emphasizing white color is like a gallery.

Let`s Pay Attention to Interior Of Western Design Mixture With Japanese "Wa"

“GSIX” exterior is designed by Yoshio Taniguchi, the Japanese architect. He imaged of “Hisashi (eaves)” and “Noren (which is the Japanese shop curtain that have split in the middle)” He incorporating Japanese traditional style, it can be said that it is an appearance that came from Japan` unique hospitality,"Omotenashi.” First, it may only think as simple building, but as I heard the words of “Hisashi” and “Noren”, I can understand and it is interesting to know how his image was built in this exterior. Am I the only one who think it is “Interesting?”

To complement the interior with a simple exterior is the interior made by French interior designer, Nicolas Gwenael. I can say that it is an art, and he was particular about all of his interior.

IMG_1420

Enter the entrance and go up to the second floor, there is a big atrium at the corner as an icon. It is a designed that the light comes out from the entire building, and the subtle space, colors and temperature differences drawn by him are well represented. It is difficult to express it good and convey, but it is a calm space with warmth. Moreover, by having interior intersecting the aisles where shops lined up, it can imagine the old Ginza alley. Exactly, it can feel the space like you are window shopping the shops that are just on the road. All of Mr. Nicolas interior have stories, from mattress, sofa, handrail of the stairs and ceiling. Thinking of it from the viewpoint of the visitors. Please go and enjoy how the story is designed!

In the center large open ceiling of the atrium, they exhibit one of the world avant-garde artist, Yayoi Kusama work (Limited exhibition: Apirl 20, 2017(Thurs)~Feb 25, 2018(Sun)) of cute pumpkin balloons with red dots with white background.

On the 3~5th floor, there is a stair of “Vertical Planar Art” that does not use soil. As if the atmosphere changed only there,  you can feel that you are in the forest.

The basement 1 is a beauty floor. The cosmetics from domestic and international brands are lined up and there is shops with salon. If salon is available, of course the reservation on the day is also possible, so it might be a good idea to stop by heal tiredness when you have time!

I have one more thing that I want you to pay attention to. That is the World first CHANEL Lounge Coco(lipstick) vending machine,”LIP GATE” that  only have two in the world! You can purchase 12 different of color Lounge Coco from here. It is convenient that you can buy it easily with button!

From 7th~12th floor are office and there is some restaurants on 13th floor. Maybe some of you think that “it is gathered of luxury brands and difficult to enter”, but I feel that you can use this place as all kinds of occasions. Just to see art works and window shopping is good, for business, and or stopped by for cafes, lunch or dinner with family, friends and couples,

I feel that "GSIX" will be the most attractive commercial facility this year. The large scale shopping mall that have 241 stores is so big, it may get lost and I assume it is  hard to look all in one day. If you do not have time, I suggest you to check out the floor map and decide where you want to go in the first place. Like me, if you are art lovers, it must be fun just looking at various art works!

Hi Everyone! Happy to see you all through this website! =) Are you enjoying our column and Tokyo information so far? I luv to travel abroad and going to new places and enlarge my horizon! I also luv to listen to music, and I am learning Chinese in this moment! What I like about Japan is the four seasons is very clear. Furthermore, the more you will know about Japan, I think you may discover more interesting things and how different each prefectures are. While Tokyo has new trend things, but in another hands, you can see old shopping street and town like Asakusa. I assume that everytime you come to Tokyo you can find and experience new things!!
