This is a gift shop for ‘LOUIS VUITTON &’, an exhibition to celebrate the maison’s 160 years of creative exchanges and artistic collaborations.
Pandemic of COVID-19 makes us to stay home. This is why the design target is to create outdoor feeling like walking around bamboo forest experience with Happy Colors, Forms and Louis Vuitton products.
Layering of colorful shiny columns makes open-close feeling like bamboo forest. Also layering of colorful volumes expands depth of space like mountains. The atmosphere is moving with reflecting Colors, light and outside landscape.
The diversity of experience is similar to a bamboo forest to share happiness and outside open feeling with Louis Vuitton products.
