For those curious what a Jay McInerney x David Lynch collab might look like, well...here it is.

David Lynch's Hotel Room. Never available on DVD, out of print on VHS, but here, now, on SF. (And YouTube).

This aired on HBO originally, in '93, I think. Three stories, six decades, one hotel room. Written by Barry Gifford (Wild at Heart, the novel) and Jay McInerney (Bright Lights, Big City, the novel) and directed by David Lynch and James Signorelli.

You'll probably want to fire up those YouTube downloaders, as well.

Nagasaka, of Schemata Architecture Office, explains that he associates garments with uncomfortable warmth, so wanted to design a cool interior that counteracts this feeling. "I wanted to make the background as calm as possible," he explains.

Rather than adding new elements to the space, most of the renovation involved peeling away unnecessary layers and sanding down rough surfaces.

"Our construction process was mostly subtraction," he says. "We intend to leave this space somewhat incomplete and when clothes are set in place it will be complete."

The architects removed the carpet of the old office and sanded down the exposed floor to create a smooth surface. They also pulled down a suspended ceiling to reveal lighting fixtures, electric cables and ventilation pipes.

Bookshelves and large boxes made from lauan plywood are scattered around the room as display areas for folded garments and accessories. Other hang from welded stainless-steel racks or from cables strung across the ceiling.

A wall of concrete blocks separates the shop floor from storage areas at the back, while a glass partition creates a small meeting room to one side.

Jo Nagasaka launched Schemata Architecture Office in 1998 and has since worked on a number of shop interiors, as well as residential projects, office interiors and furniture design. Past projects include Paco, a house contained in a three metre cube, and the Tokyo flagship for fashion brand Takeo Kikuchi.

Here's a project description from Jo Nagasaka:


EEL Nakameguro

Creating a sense of 'incompleteness' was the key to our design. In my mind clothes are associated with warmth of human body, sometimes that feeling gets too intense and uncomfortably hot. This is why I wanted to make the background as calm as possible.

EEL Nakameguro by Schemata Architecture Office

We intend to leave this space somewhat incomplete and when clothes are set in place it will be complete. So our construction process was mostly 'subtraction', that is, dismantling, peeling, and scraping unnecessary layers, except for a few 'additional' elements.

EEL Nakameguro by Schemata Architecture Office

The site was formerly used as office space. For the floor, we peeled off the existing carpet and sanded exposed mortar undercoat thoroughly to make it perfectly horizontal and 'super-flat'.

EEL Nakameguro by Schemata Architecture Office

As a result we created unique random mosaic pattern. In some places aggregates are revealed, and in other places finer particles cover up the surface.

EEL Nakameguro by Schemata Architecture Office

We also removed all the finishing materials - paint, baseboard, insulation etc. - from walls and ceiling, and hidden surface of concrete that is unfinished and not ready for public viewing is now exposed. By reversing the construction process, a state of 'incompleteness' reappears.

EEL Nakameguro by Schemata Architecture Office

Display fixtures are also constructed halfway and left at a state of 'incompleteness'. Stainless steel mirror and frame are welded for assembly and we left the weld joint unpolished, so it creates interesting patterns on the surface.

EEL Nakameguro by Schemata Architecture Office

Hanging racks are made of anti-corrosive coated steel pipes. Surface coating is removed at joints then they are welded together. And we erase burnt traces of welding but leave steel surface unpainted.

EEL Nakameguro by Schemata Architecture Office

Wooden boxes, used as display base, are made of lauan wood. It is a kind wood usually used for underlay, but we leave it unpainted. These unfinished elements reinforce our design concept of 'incompleteness'.

EEL Nakameguro by Schemata Architecture Office

Other elements are added to this space: glass partition wall, fitting room, concrete block masonry wall separating shop and back room, and a thick steel tension cable that is used to hang clothes, lighting fixtures and electrical wiring for lighting. When the final design element clothes are displayed, the space is complete.

Great space and great clothes - anyone know where they're stocked?

post #1302 of 1305

i've been able to find stuff on rakuten and y!jp, but no actual stockists

post #1303 of 1305

J-Suplex, acoustics and NDC all carry EEL, I'm sure there are more out there though

Some time when the river is ice ask me
mistakes I have made. Ask me whether
what I have done is my life. Others
have come in their slow way into
my thought, and some have tried to help
or to hurt: ask me what difference
their strongest love or hate has made.

I will listen to what you say.
You and I can turn and look
at the silent river and wait. We know
the current is there, hidden; and there
are comings and goings from miles away
that hold the stillness exactly before us.
What the river says, that is what I say.
