Beauty Library is an organic beauty store-cum-cafe located in Tokyo’s hip Aoyama neighbourhood. Playfully reflecting its namesake it features library-like shelving units that house a selection of rejuvenatory beauty products in bright colours. Guests can also use in-store tablet devices to quickly and autonomously access additional information on the products.

Adjacent to the beauty area is an in-store cafe where customers can order health conscious food and drinks. The joining of food and cosmetics is intended to speak to the idea that the interior and exterior both have a bearing on beauty, and therefore equally important.
