This gorgeous minimalist shop called 'Beauty Library' was created by Japanese designer Neno. The small cosmetic shop located in Tokyo fuses together the feeling of a cafe as well as the idea of shopping in a boutique store. The result is a minimalist shop that features massive wooden shelving units. Each shelf is stocked with vibrantly colored and precisely placed products to give a cohesive and clean appearance.

The Beauty Library also incorporates self-study beauty areas that are essentially single tables placed in random parts of the shelving units. These tables are used for personal beauty sessions or one-on-one interaction.

The shop exudes a relaxed approach to retail. The atmosphere is a calming space with neutral tones that are elegantly broken up by the beautiful assortment of colorful products. In addition to the beauty aspects, the shop offers cafe-styled food and beverages. Photo Credits: designboom, nendo.jp
