Nihombashi Mitsukoshi
by Lighting Planners Associates

Lighting Planners Associates

Lighting Planners Associates has created a lighting solution inspired by trees for a department store in Tokyo.

Nihombashi was once the starting point to connect five important land routes during the Edo period. Since then, it has been a bustling neighbourhood with historic architecture, traditions and culture.

The architectural design concept for this renovation centred around "trees" to gather people and "paths" to move people.

Historical parts of the building have been preserved and incorporated with new spaces. On the first floor of the main building, the lighting design is based on the architectural theme of a shining, white forest.


This project has been longlisted in the architectural lighting design category of Dezeen Awards 2020.
