the painting supply store “pigment” features a huge selection of more than 4,200 different pigments, paintbrushes, ink sticks and traditional japanese paper. this store is run by the warehouse company terrada and is part of a programme to convert the companies` warehouses in the shinagawa area into design shops, museums, galleries and restaurants. the selection of suppy goods is as amazing as the store’s interior design by architect kengo kuma. kuma created an open space framed by waves of bamboo sticks which both have an exquisite and welcoming appearance.
