Chic in Japan
ROLF BENZ goes Tokio
Pushing, shoving, grumbling? Not in the Land of the Rising Sun. It’s good that the Japanese are so exceptionally polite and disciplined, especially since the streets of Tokyo are pretty overcrowded. With a population density that is twice as high as that of Berlin, the Japanese capital is one of the most densely populated areas in the world. As many people live in the metropolitan area of Tokyo as in the whole of Canada: over 38 million. It’s not just people who are crowded into Tokyo’s fashionable luxury district, Aoyama. The density of select fashion and interior labels is also remarkably high.
The Who’s Who of international luxury brands
Discerning shopping fans will find everything their luxury-loving heart could possibly desire in Aoyama and the neighbouring district of Omotesando. The top-class shopping experience is surrounded by urban planning highlights from renowned architecture greats such as Tadao Ando, Kengo Kuma and Fumihiko Maki. Added to this are cultural hotspots such as the well-known Nezu Museum or the Blue Note Tokyo jazz bar. The elegant shopping district was enriched with another attraction on 24th January 2020: a ROLF BENZ flagship store, the first on Japanese soil.
Stylish living environments “Made in Germany”
ROLF BENZ presents stylish living environments that are “Made in Germany” over 300m2. The store concept is based on a design by Studio Labs Hamburg, a long-standing partner of ROLF BENZ. The imposing flagship store isn’t only intended for well-heeled individuals, its target group also includes architects and designers who are from or work in Japan. The utmost importance is attached to individual advice. Store employees who were specially trained in Nagold assist customers with all matters relating to their project plans. They are always extremely polite and courteous, naturally. As Japan-like as in all ROLF BENZ brand stores throughout the world.
