Yesterday everyone’s favorite minimal lifestyle store MUJI opened a new shop in Yurakucho, Tokyo. The new space, which is actually a renovation of an existing store, occupies 3 floors and 3,277 square meters, making it MUJI’s largest flagship store in the world. One of the main attractions is a partially-suspended bookshelf that holds 10,000 books and traverses 2 of the floors.
The bookshelf was designed specifically for the store by architects Atelier Bow Wow (previously). Beginning on the ground level, it bends and curves and then rises up onto the 2nd floor. You can see more photos of the new shop over on Fashionsnap.
