Pierpaolo Martiradonna Connects All the Elements: Zazen Bear

This Italian architect created the most unique retail space, Zazen Bear, in existence. He uses all natural materials for the interior including white oak and Pietra di Vals for the flooring. The walls and all the millwork are hand painted. The bottom floor is a yoga and meditation studio and the overall theme of the store is tranquillity and peace. Martiradonna captured the idea by creating three interlocking circular rooms. The open staircase leading to the second floor is accentuated by a vertical garden that incorporates three plants that don’t need a lot of sunlight. This amazing structure acts as a filter and purifies the air in the store.

The store features home furnishings and jewelry that is designed to express peace and tranquillity. It is a way to get people to stop and just breathe. There is no other place like it and definitely something that you have to see for yourself. Come down and check it out at 497 Broome Street. Go to www.zazenbear.com for directions or more information.
