This clothing shop in Manhattan was designer Issey Miyake's first freestanding boutique in the U.S. The shop reflects the same juxtaposition of fluid and rigid lines that Miyake's women's and men's collections do.

The line of vision follows a triangular cut in the floor, reflected by the duct above, and converges on the point of focus of geometry of the space where a person can stand to observe the shop. The central axis is present yet absent as a form. The space is suspended between stainless steel cables used to hang clothing and disappear into the ceiling, and the suggestion of a depth created by the blur triangular cut in the floor.
