ÅLAND Osaka, ÅLAND, ADASTRIA, 2022.10.16.

    Osaka is situated in the Kansai region, a destination where Koreans seek a more direct experience of Japanese tradition and urban life. Recognizing this, 'ÅLAND' received a request to design the Osaka store from the perspective of Koreans observing Japan. For instance, they utilized the red color from the Japanese national flag as the base for the floor carpet, and incorporated graphics reminiscent of 'Heno Heno Moheji', drawn with a brush, which bear similarities to the fish graphics associated with 'ÅLAND', expressed on the ceiling. The intentional use of Lauan plywood as a furniture material is also a notable design aspect.
