Sorayumebako By Yukio Kimura, Osaka

Japanese interior designer Yukio Kimura has recently created a hybrid space that includes a cafe bar, second-hand bookshop and art gallery all rolled into one.

Situated in Osaka and located in a suburban area, away from the commercial centers, the store was designed to blend into the surroundings, which came about by following the client’s wish to reflect the store’s name;
Sorayumebako (roughly translated to Dreambox), into the actual design.

Yukio explains: Sorayume is a Japanese word meaning a fabricated dream.

Having this concept in mind, I designed space where visitors can feel as if they stepped into another world, like a dream.
