GENTLE MONSTER

 


Gentle Monster is a series of concept stores all over the world, each designed by a different architect in regard to an aesthetic or a philosophical idea.


Past and present coexist in Gentle Monster’s store ‘bathhouse’. Coexistence was chosen as a means of remembering the things that we don’t want to forget, but will be forgotten.

Gentle Monster brings a space of zen, inspired by the spirit, emotions and oriental traditions associated with harvesting, to the core of Los Angeles’ core historical theatre district. Showcasing rare and unique finishes ranging from marble and metal to mother-of-pearl, Gentle Monster’s Harvest brings a sense of nature in the heart of downtown. The space takes visitors on a journey through the stages of harvest from paddy fields through threshing with captivating kinetic installations and handmade visual objects to create a unique and never before experienced space.
