Project space “Vacant" opened in Harajuku Tokyo in 2009 by Yusuke Nagai, in attempt to transforming a space to a-place. After a decade, a new base "Vacant/Centre” was founded in 2021. Through Centre / Multiple / Works, the pursuit of 'Place Design' will continue to cultivate.
Centre is Vacant’s operational base located near Tokyo’s Yoyogi Hachimangu Shrine. Our 5-floor main building with a separate 2-floor building features multiple use spaces including Vacant’s studio, fostering various ‘places’. It’ll be accessible during opening days and events. Notes about Centre→
Multiple is Vacant’s original product label. From furniture, clothing, to small objects, they’re designed with the thoughts of the ‘place’ that emerge when used/worn/decorated. They’ll be mainly available through the irregular order reception, as well as a limited amount online. Notes about Multiple→
Works is Vacant’s client work and other activities. In a cross-sectoral manner from space, product, graphic design, to curation tailored to each project, the aim is to compose a unique 'place'. Notes about Works→
