Issey Miyake US Flagship Store

Architect Frank Gehry conceived of a dramatic intervention in the space by creating a tornado simulated out of stainless steel, which links basement to street level. The general lighting plays with reflections off the steel, and the light illuminating the merchandise is hidden in ceiling joists.
