The Ceramika ceramic tableware flagship store is located in the centre of Matsumoto city in a riverside former City Hall building.
The space was completely stripped and the new interior is deliberately simple but with meticulously refined details.
The layout is on a strict repetitive grid.

The colours and materials of the interior were chosen to harmonise with the porcelain, which is mostly blue and white.
The aim was to create a strict, yet humble, space.
As an enhancing frame for the ceramic objects at display (and a section of illustrated children’s books from around the world!).
