Japanese designers Case-Real, headed by Koichi Futatsumata, have completed a boutique interior in Fukuoka, Japan, with a curved wall dividing the space.

Created for retailers Alohanine, the interior has a curvilinear wall that begins at the entrance on the south side and ends on the north side of the shop.

The ceiling is also curved along the length of the shop.

"One big curve expands obliquely into the inside considering the view from a street in front and the movement line and another gentle curve of the ceiling link in three dimensions," says Kayo Yamaguchi of Case-Real.

    I really enjoy eh subtlelty of the light against the walls and the way the glass meet the walls. Very nice and clean.

    nice and pure..good play of volumes…Ok,as I see,being inside the shop actually should be different yhan those photos,and the feeling we get should be different-but still I think,even being there actually would be very fine and comfortable!

    Reminds me of Frank Lloyd Wright’s V.C. Morris Gift Shop in San Francisco, both in the understated entrance, and how introducing a few simple curves can really lighten up the typical boxy storefront. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=obLIFhQuFP8
