Puma House by Nendo
The interior design for the new Puma House Tokyo, located in the city’s Aoyama
design district. Puma House Tokyo combines the brand’s press room and event space
into one space for the first time. Puma House Tokyo is a multipurpose space that
can be used for exhibitions, events, fittings, product launches and other media
events. it is also available for rentals.
For our design, we placed ‘staircases’ that climb around the existing features
around the space like vines. But these staircases are not for people to climb.
Rather, they function as display stands for PUMA’s sneakers and as a compositional
element that gives the space a special character.
The resulting effect is a strong reminder that we exercise our bodies daily going
up and down stairs, and has a visual connection with stadium stairs and podiums
too, to bring in PUMA’s important relationship with sports. The stairs bring a
sense of movement to the interior, enabling a three-dimensional product display
that fully uses its space and allows visitors to experience PUMA’s worldview.
