Kyoto walk | Machiya, bath, old warehouse, the fascinating philosophy of life in the old building

By
Geisha, Tea Ceremony, Kinkakuji Temple and Ginkakuji Temple, or the infinitely overlooked Thousand Birds House, whenever you talk about the old city of Kyoto, these symbols of the symbolism of Japan are always emerging in your mind. From the walk of Shangjing to the vicinity of the Gion, try to find the veins of the former Nishijin textile industry in the Lanes, stop in front of the gorgeous murals of the Erzhimao Temple in Nijo Castle, or find the gorgeous figure of the geisha in the Gion. Considering the impression of the old city, it can't be cut with old buildings; the traditional Machiya, the public baths, and the old warehouses that weaved in the West, the old buildings still look like today. This time, the old building is used as a symbol to explore the life aesthetics of the new students. Editorial Haus MAGASINN (マガザン)| Staying at the hotel? No, staying at the first stop of a one-page/night magazine trip, I always want to rush to the hotel where I stayed, put down my luggage, and rush into the city to explore. However, Kyoto is such a city that is suitable for a slow pace. If there is an impatience, there will always be a subtle guilt. In the traditional street near Nijo Castle, this hostel called "Editorial Haus MAGASINN" stands, so that you won't be willing to leave just leaving your luggage, but willing to spend an afternoon or an evening. The naming is extended by the magazine "magazine" in English. Here, "magazine" is no longer an inspiration for stacking on paper sheets, but a space that can be felt and touched in three dimensions.

Under the remodeling of the owner Iwasaki, or "editor", it is filled with new students. vitality. From the concept of operation to the vision of the store, Dafa also extends the method of “editing magazines” and curating. It only accepts 1 group of passengers per day (up to 6 people). Through the control of the number of residents, it provides more profound and exclusive travellers. Experience. Photography/ Nobutada Omote. Photography/ Nobutada Omote. Photography/ Nobutada Omote. I used to like reading magazines. The beauty of the magazine is that it can visualize the great or unknown things around you.

A mash-up guide to modern life with a space experience as a language: Roman & Williams GUILD

By

Tired of the concept store that is like copying and pasting, the more and more similar space and style; when you walk in the mall or the street, full of minimalist or industrial style, selling similar styles and choices, gradually can not tell For each brand, "What is the taste of a store?" - Asking, thinking about the existence and necessity of physical stores in the Internet age. This kind of questioning is not only in the minds of consumers and me, but also Robin Standefer and Stephen Alesch, two heads of New York architecture/interior design team Roman and Williams, who have repeatedly asked themselves in recent years. At the end of last year (2017), the couple's "Roman & Williams GUILD" opened in Soho, New York, may be seen as a response and reflection on this question. With more than 7,000 square feet of GUIDE, it's not hard to imagine the difficulty of managing a large space; Robin and Stephen combine multi-dimensional logic to house furniture boutiques, restaurants, flower shops and the Phaidon Art Library. The details of the objects, from exquisite glassware, modern furniture, antique treasures to food utensils, even without a specific style of mix and match, it is not difficult to see the two people's vision of a better life. "I like the words and thoughts of dialogue between objects; that is the language that enhances our day-to-day life and shapes a story for these pieces... When I put it into it, I don't even know "design" What is it, but the connection between them. It is the symphony of everything in a space, like a symphony." - Robin Standefer starts with architecture and space, Robin and Stephen lead Roman and Williams, It has long been a well-known design team in New York; from the hotel Ace New York, South Africa Island GREYDON HOUSE, New York famous restaurants Lafayette and Le Coucou, the two ingeniously blend the history and modern beauty of the building itself, in restaurants, restaurants and product design In terms of consistency, we have consistently found a balance between rigor and rebellion, the past and the future, won many awards and received international attention, laying a solid foundation. And GUILD is the result of years of experience, and effortlessly Robin and Stephen...

French floral fascination: Counting the poetic little things in life, Les Fleurs, Paris store

By

At about 22 degrees Celsius in the early winter, I recalled the first meeting with Paris, and I couldn't wait to take a deep breath and let the unique French atmosphere of Paris implement the chest and lungs. At that time, the weather was not cold enough to spit out white smoke. Standing at the door of the train, the sound of the subway rumble was fascinating. When I was worried, I couldn’t help but calculate the time of the door switch. The sound of the track in the ear seemed to predict the train. Will take you to all corners of Huadu. The subway arrived at the Ledru-Rollin station, which was favored by the Bohemians. It walked out of the station and entered the densely populated Paris 11th district. All the way to pass the pedestrians, and I was anxious to go to the friend's mouth, "Les Fleurs," a shop that "except the flowers of the girl's heart." "Fleurs" is the meaning of "flowers" in French. It is like a flowery, looking like a flower, along the streets of Trousseau; a simple store with black walls and large windows, looks up. The name of the lowercase shop of Les Fleurs. Looking out from the outside of the door, the old-fashioned square tiles extend deep into the space. In addition to the jewelry that screams girls, the store is also filled with various or charming, or antique daily necessities; from tableware, leather goods, lamps, Antique furniture and other objects, with a round of eyesight, as long as it can make life poetic objects, can be found here. The first thing that comes to the store is the green corner. Various potted plants and cacti are interspersed with glassware. From white porcelain, insect portraits to retro round mirrors, we welcome guests in a charming gesture on the display stand and wall. The owner, Lucie Denist, has his own tastes and preferences, and has an unobstructed view of the objects: Zangra's exquisite lamps, the British kitchen brand Kilner glass jars, Moroccan-style furnishings and carpets. Lucie, a former biologist, opened her first small store in a secret Parisian street in 2004. At the beginning of the business, there are many difficulties, and the company is constantly coordinating and communicating with customers. In 2006, she began to run blogs, opened her popularity, and met her husband who loves antiques. In 2008, the store was relocated to Josset Street, and after 6 years, the name of "Les Fleurs" was re-established. This branch on Trousseau Street was set up, and it is expected that the flowers will be beautiful and can be passed on to visitors. The Les Fleurs store is arguably the best place to live for paranoia. When you leave the store door, you will still remember those things that shine with unique light. Recalling that the clerk put the beautiful pin into the paper bag, delivered the moment for a moment, and the heartbeat caused by the small object, it seems to also predict his "collection" journey, but the satisfaction is not yet to be continued. Les Fleurs Trousseau 5 rue Trousseau (et 6...

For lovers who are obsessed with design, establish a private taste of habitat: hidden in the city's alleys, "hermit", Hong Kong ANHHORET

By
I remember that when I traveled to several countries in Europe for the past two years, I had a very deep feeling: no matter which city you go to, there is always a commercial street full of fine products from various countries or a variety of choice shops; although different urban buildings have their own The style is unique, but the streets that are completely swallowed up by the commercialization of big companies are really suffocating. The heavy pressure of pressure drove me to always go to the alley, eager to see something that the real locals wanted to present. In October this year, I visited Hong Kong, which has not traveled for a long time. When I was a child who lived here for a year, I naturally felt a bit of emotion for this city. I still remember the city’s crowded high-rises and the disappearance of the sky. Take a trip to Central to see the commercial streets that every international city should have. Then, "Where should I go?" Looking at the building in front of me, I thought about it. Guided by local experts, away from the so-called extreme prosperity, heading towards Queensway West, I finally found ANCORET in a hillside street filled with snack vendors and traditional markets. "Anchoret", the hermit, the name and location are really complementary, and it is clear that it is to stay away from the dust, and to be located in a more earthy place - for people passing by, or as famous as my passengers It is a surprise. ANCHORET is a three-storey compound store. On the first floor is a coffee bar with exquisite desserts and coffee; on the second floor is a small corridor, several chairs allow people to sit down and read the book; the wall is made into a window to display the goods, and the black frame is used to outline the appearance. Art gallery-like atmosphere. In the end, the small seating area can drink coffee, read books, and overlook the first floor and huge decorative chandeliers. On the third floor is the main exhibition area of ​​ANCORET. Firstly, the old antique ornaments are printed in the eyes. Then the minimalist counter display jewelry and simple fragrance and home decoration. The wooden large wardrobe seems to add a little warmth to the whole store. Zen; the moving line design seems to slowly guide the guests into a private large dressing room, allowing people to walk freely and appreciate the different brands of clothing. Designer furniture is also sold here, cleverly integrated with the entire interior style, retaining the characteristics of each brand, but fully coordinated with the simplicity and softness of the space. I was fortunate to see the owner Nicky, who had a very confident and generous temperament and shared the story of ANCHORET. . First of all, please talk about your experience and background. What is the opportunity for you to set up ANCHORET? I was originally doing graphic design work, and another partner, Onkit, was doing work on fashion. Because Onkit has always wanted to open a store of its own, let more people know some small but high-quality clothing. A trip to Beijing, a coincidence, saw that there was no small-handed shop or niche designer brand in China, which prompted us to start our first store in Beijing. . The name of the store is named after "hermit". What is the reason? What is the belief in this store or the concept that you want to convey? We have always liked the clothing store hidden in the streets of Japan - you will find surprises when you explore the alley. We also hope that ANCHORET also has the meaning of being quietly hidden in the city. So when the first store was specially selected to be located in the courtyard of Beijing Hutong, there were only local old residents and some small restaurants nearby. ANCHORET's idea is also to stay away from the busy business district and hope to create a more private alternative to the visitors. . What is the standard for ANCHORET? What are the characteristics and relevance of each brand? The standards and characteristics of the choices are often based on personal preferences and aesthetics, far more than other reasons - of course, there will be commercial considerations. But most of the goods are designs that we feel very appreciated or like, because we believe that if we don't like or don't understand them, we can't express their value to the guests. Therefore, each store directly reflects the owner's preferences and tastes. ANCHORET AW17 Moodbook. ANCHORET AW17 Moodbook. ANCHORET AW17 Moodbook. ANCHORET AW17 Moodbook. Hong Kong's choice of stores is not much longer. What is the difference between ACHANORET and many stores? We believe that the taste of each store owner is unique, the same brand, or even the same product, in a different space, there will be another collision. Rather than saying that ACHANORET has something unique, it should be said that each store is unique. . From the opening of the store in Beijing to the current branch in Hong Kong, what is the difference between the two stores? Beijing's store is a pure clothing store, it is more focused on clothes; Hong Kong store is a space that mixes the elements of life - this is the biggest difference between the two stores. The Beijing store and the Hong Kong store have different ideas, but they all have one thing in common. They are specially chosen to deviate from the bustling commercial areas and insist on the idea of ​​“hidden in the city”. . In your opinion, what is the difference in fashion or art between Beijing and Hong Kong? Beijing has a deep history, culture and tradition, and the pace of life is slow, allowing people to focus on doing things or creating. Hong Kong is a relatively modern and prosperous city. The city is very mature and has a very convenient life. People are in a hurry. I think the difference between the two places is that in Hong Kong you can easily buy a wide range of fashion goods or artworks, but there is no good creative atmosphere. In Beijing, the relative literary atmosphere is relatively heavy, and it is a place where artists and designers are born. . What are the next plans or expectations? ...

Buying Notes | With Lilac and Creek, Dedicated to the Leisure of Life: Clove & Creek

By

At the end of the series, Halloween, Christmas and other celebrations have been staged, but in the big city's carnival, I occasionally want to spend my free time. After a weekend walk to Clove & Creek on 73rd Street in Kingston, Kingston, the exterior walls seem to have some peeling off, and a whole piece of floor-to-ceiling windows reveals the spaciousness of the store, with light bulbs hanging one after another. At the door, there are tomato pots and various herbs; a dog is lying in front of the sun in front of the door, and it may be so lazy in the afternoon of autumn and winter. Kingston is the first state capital of New York State. The history is quite long. In the past two years, it has been a new stronghold for New York guests to spend the weekend. Therefore, the art and leisure atmosphere of the place, "the air seems to carry Magic, in recent years, has attracted creators and artists to stay here.” Two of Clove & Creek's owners, Scott Neild and Michael Cook, are fascinated by this. On a weekend night trapped by heavy snow, the two men joked about the idea of ​​opening a store while drinking bourbon. It was soon discovered that those who loved to build beautiful things in their lives really wanted a small shop that could be assembled by local manufacturers and creators. "People are always looking for links and experiences, so they wake up the temperature of the street and make the relationship between the neighbors closer. We hope to bring the feelings of the local community and visitors." Will it fill a need in people's "Lilac and creek", from the name of the store, can be used to explore the rural handcrafts and natural beauty of Clove & Creek, but Scott and Michael do not limit the restraint of aesthetics; The two people are now fascinated by British and Mexican culture, which is also reflected in the store's selection. Warm, natural and excellent design is the store's selection criteria, but in addition to these concepts, the practicality of the items must also be combined. At first, the two first tried the water temperature in the flash market, and last year decided to settle in Kingston. The guests who were in the flash shop were still dead fans. In front of the brown-brown wall in the store, several paintings are hanged, and oil lamps, tableware, tea, soap, massage oil and other items are placed in the store. The rustic atmosphere is more than the atmosphere of wild and natural exploration. There are also stationery, groceries, picture books, pots and pans, and the corners of the wooden cabinets in the store have been transformed into coffee bars. The coffee sold is from Parlor Coffee, a well-known coffee roaster in Brooklyn, New York, which is expected to provide freshly brewed coffee. Let everyone know the neighborhood and chat with a cup of coffee here. Choosing your own taste style from the needs of life can be regarded as a taste of life. Choose the hand with temperature for the people, Clove...

Secret base in the small window on the second floor: Kyoto ancient props groceries, yamne

By
I was fascinated by the map of Kyoto, and I strolled through the high and low undulating Sakae Street. I was able to smash a few thousand bird houses for a while, and dumped the gorgeous figures of geisha and maiko. In the autumn season, the city wrote a red poem with the red maple in the land; the memory of the capital of the past millennium was sorted into traditional songs, and it was not burned after the bustling. Take a scoop of the river flowing through the water, cook a bowl of thousands of miles to pass on and respect the silence; in the blink of an eye, the tea is overflowing, the shamisen of the three flavors linger, leaving the eyes of the wind, is the profound cultural heritage of the ancient city. After seeing the splendour of the Kinkakuji Temple, Kiyomizu-dera Temple and Nijo Castle, you will visit the lively business district of Shijo-Kawaramachi and the two-year-old and three-year-old specialty shops. The journey has not stopped. The old city has never been disappointed. There are still many new fascinating stories and philosophy of life in the grid-like lanes. And word of mouth is probably the same thing. Holding the mood in the middle of the Beijing area, looking for a small shop in the mouth of local friends; just when I thought that I was lost when I was about to give up, I looked up inadvertently, and the goal of finding it fell into the eyes. Compared with the new buildings around the world, the "yamne" operated by Miss Wandai is a dilapidated and unobtrusive. There are no conspicuous signboards, and the small storefront on the second floor only has the name of the store on the window; however, as soon as you step into yamne, it is hard to find, and everything is so reasonable. Ms. Takako, who was originally working in the apparel industry, was transferred to a grocery store that handled the craftsman's life because of her ambitions. Since then, she has become passionate about various handicrafts. Occasionally, I met this building and the small room on the second floor; the old in the eyes of others, in her opinion, is full of charm, at first sight. "Whether it is good to do anything, open a shop!" Holding the idea of ​​trying it out and being discouraged, Miss Takako rented it here, and invested in the most familiar life and crafts, the kind of grocery store. The appearance gradually became clear from the mind to the space. However, the "choice of choice" is like "life" (both of which are verbs). It is not a slap in the middle of throwing beautiful, beautiful and hot objects into it. It is always sloppy to Miss Kiko. No big deal. The artifacts in yamne are works by creators from all over Japan, or antiques and old pieces that have flown from abroad. Before introducing yamne, Miss Takako must first meet with the creators and know the behind the works. The story, the craftsmanship, and the personality of the creator, truly appreciate, identify, then will be put into the store - indeed, extremely subjective, personal selection logic, but life is not the case? The small persistence and the enthusiasm of personal feelings make this "private taste" have a taste in the eyes of visitors. In fact, I just want to introduce the works and stories that I know and appreciate. However, it is not enough to introduce and share the works; the craftsman's own personality, creative ideas and ways of thinking, etc., also want to be conveyed to the guests. I hope that they will bring the piece home because they really understand, like, appreciate. I like the small corner of the window that was originally a sink, and now I have several bottles of flowers. I also like the old desk on the other side of the window, which is simple and full of flavor. Ms. Guizi will take care of her daily poetry into an ancient poetry. There are flowers and sunshine in the poems, as well as gentle hands with dedication. In the cups and pans, there are stacks of gratitude for the utensils and life. She laughed and said that many visitors rushed to the stairs and opened the door of yamne. The original uneasiness turned into a relaxed smile - always witnessing her instant look, this picture is the happiest time. I hope that yamne can be a place where everyone feels warm - a secret base belonging to adults, as intimate as "home." Ms. Takako invited artists/creators to create or hold small exhibitions in the store. The picture shows the work of the artist Shan Xixi. She uses the window of ymane as the canvas, and uses oil to dye the space with a blue-green halo. It is because of the heart and affection in yamne that this small space is not just an ordinary store. Ms. Takako invited the creators to open a variety of themed workshops in the store. In addition to allowing the creators to personally appreciate them, I hope that I can pass on the simpler and easier-to-use craftsmanship. "Even if you are not happy every day, it is a matter of course that you hate or work hard in life. However, this is the time when you need this space; and I hope that yamne can be a place to warm everyone." Live music performances are also held regularly in the store, providing drinks and refreshments, so that old and new friends can meet and communicate in a relaxed atmosphere. On weekend afternoons or evenings, yamne will hold music performances from time to time. A variety of workshops for themes, allowing creators and guests to communicate with each other.

The objects full of feel, the warmth of people and space, the happiness of life condensed in the small space on the second floor of the old building; Miss Yuzi reminded the visitors with yamne that the daily life is so gentle and the life is still abundant.

Flowers, coffee and small things in life, this is perhaps the most lovely mini market in New York this year: MARCHÉ MAMAN

By
The Soho neighborhood in Manhattan is probably the impression of everyone's representative of the bustling New York fashion. Surrounded by boutique homes, there is another urban style hidden in it; elegant, ancient buildings, inlaid into the art of many galleries, very charming. The MARCHÉ MAMAN concept store is located in this prestigious and beautiful neighbourhood, stretching out of New York's famous café/restaurant MAMAN. MAMAN was founded by three founders from different fields and backgrounds; Armand Arnal, head chef of the Michelin restaurant in La Chassagnette in the south of France; Benjamin Sormonte, entrepreneur in the restaurant industry; and Elisa Marshall is a baked brand with a brand With the designer. The trio took their home cooking from South France and North America to bring the memories of their childhood memories to New Yorkers; since opening their first store in Soho in 2014, they have opened branches in Tribeca, Meatpacking and Brooklyn. It can be seen that it is popular with locals. Image Source: Maman . The MARCHÉ MAMAN, a selection concept store that opened just this summer, brings together the love and preferences of the three founders. From design and style to food and beverage, with the aim of "enjoying and pursuing the beauty of life", we explore aesthetics and taste; the lovely and comfortable space atmosphere shows the philosophy of life of three people. From the Spring St. subway station, standing outside the store is immediately attracted to the French pastoral facade. Pushing away the old and chic old wooden doors, the wood floors and beams and columns exude a quaint European atmosphere; the clean white walls reveal the texture of the bricks, and the traces of the old buildings leave the beautiful pen lines. At the corner of the shop, the lush and sloppy planting workbench makes people feel like they are in a small flower shop or grocery store in South France. After a careful look, in addition to potted plants, there are also small objects in life. From stationery, canvas bags, coffee and tea, scented candles, to beauty care products, children's clothing, hang felts, pillows, antique cutlery and furniture, and even a small kitchen with brunch, floating next door to MAMAN comes from The coffee scent of the Toby Estate in Australia is like a walk into a mini market. In addition to selling a variety of life options, the store also offers ice cream from MilkMade in the summer, while the blue-gray door is decorated with West Elm furniture and seats. The courtyard is a unique space for relaxation. The concept of creating a space for three people comes from working with many small business brands. Although they are only in a small space, they can each play different professions and tastes, so that MAMAN can create a richer picture of life with creativity. The visiting guests feel like home. As the founder mentioned, working with Flower Girl, who is in charge of flowers, seems to be in the garden, and...

By

In the spring of April, the warm sun basks in the street, warming up the people in the city; following the red and yellow two-color brick road on the Tainan Zhongyi Road, I came to PARIPARIパリパリ. This old-fashioned space, which combines the Birdfly Antiquities Store, St.1CAFE & MEAL and the Residence, is operated by Jiahong, Azo, Charlie and Xinyi. Formerly a pawn shop with a history of 45 years, because of the beauty and materials of the old house, it is determined to use this as a storefront. It has the architectural background and retains the outline of the original building. , showing the nostalgic style of the Showa era. Exploring the first floor, the sound of Suzuki Changji’s "Thinking" sounded in the ear, the old songs and the slow tunes accompanied by the old objects in order, are very moving. Originally used only in the warehouse-style exhibition, the Birdfly Antiquities Store was later fascinated by the mission of collecting old things and inheriting old things. The idea of ​​opening a store was raised. "I hope that through the "actual display", the public will feel the objects placed. The look of the up." Jia Hong said truthfully, and according to the size of the space to select items, so compared to the warehouse, the store is mainly exquisite, easy to carry items. In the early days, he collected objects from the market and the Internet, and later specialized in wood furniture, gradually established his own source. Regarding personal selection tips, he smiled. "Choose what you like must not be wrong!" and revealed that he mainly observes the skin, items and possibilities. "The skin is the appearance of the object, and each mottle Every scar is its original appearance, and each wound has its own story. The item can be inferred whether it takes a lot of time to sort out the repair. Finally, it is possible to think about the item according to modern needs. Sex." Most people who love old things are pleasing people. The value of the goods is not the price, but the workmanship and skills behind it, and the intriguing story. Going up the second floor and pushing open the arched door made of wood, there is an embarrassing coffee fragrance. St.1 CAFE & MEAL is responsible for the five-year coffee experience of Azo and Charlie. In addition to coffee and dessert, it plans to introduce light food in the future. It will also develop special drinks in line with the Showa period, such as color-based natural drinks. And will hold a coffee-themed sharing session to deliver complete coffee information.
