The main ground floor is flanked by a dry landscape with arrangements of rocks, gravel, moss and shrubs to achieve the interior of the Zen garden. Beige wooden elements also feature prominently inside the store to emphasize a sense of Japanese tradition.
Také Umiyama, Managing Director/COO of OWNDAYS INC., said, “The Takashimaya SC store reflects OWNDAYS’ core value of constantly evolving and innovating in order to provide consumers with quality eyewear at the best price. With a store located right in the heart of Orchard Road, this allows us to make well-designed, good-quality eyewear more accessible to our customers. Additionally, the new store is a space where we hope local consumers can enjoy a full Japanese experience without having to physically travel to Japan. We invite customers to visit the store even when they are not looking to buy glasses and just feel transported to Japan.”
