A New Location for Paola Lenti Tokyo

Paola Lenti Tokyo flagship store relocated from Hiroo residential district to Azabudai Hills, the most sustainable and avant-garde area in downtown Tokyo. The store, opened in collaboration with Atlantic Cars Ltd, the exclusive distributor of the brand in Japan, unfolds on a single level and directly overlooks Azabudai Hills. This new urban village, designed by Heatherwick Studio, represents the pinnacle of a 30-year regeneration plan aimed at creating one of the largest green areas in the city.

Azabudai Hills district hosts the largest international school in Tokyo, along with temples, art galleries, offices, and restaurants: an extraordinary “three-dimensional landscape” where futuristic structural forms become a network that bridles residential glazed buildings and commercial spaces, echoing that typical architectural crowding of Tokyo where old and new architectures, large and small, are leaning against each other. The whole surrounded by almost 3 hectares of green spaces, rich in trees, flowers and fountains.

Seamlessly integrated into the Japanese style – resonating with us in the appreciation for aesthetics and dedication to traditional craftsmanship – the new flagship store offers a comprehensive overview of the company’s furnishings for both indoor and outdoor and was conceived to closely collaborates with architects and interior designers, providing custom services.

The neutral shades of white and beige chosen for the walls and flooring enhance the bold colours for which Paola Lenti is globally renowned. The turquoise-green surfaces of the lava and glass Sciara tables, the solar yellow of the Welcome sofa, and the vibrant pink of the Adagio suspended seat create a pleasing contrast with the intentionally essential architecture of the space. Inaugurated on Friday, February 9th, with an event dedicated to the world of design and architecture, the showroom is officially open to the public from Saturday, February 10th, 2024, every day from 11 am to 6 pm, excluding Wednesdays.
