For those who follow the online award-winning blog “Colossal,” you make have seen the post “A New Japanese Painting Supply Store Lines its Walls With 4,200 Different Pigments“. A spectacular store design by architect Kengo Kuma uses bamboo to create beautiful open, airy spaces that display a stunning array of art supplies and tools like museum pieces.

One wall contains thousands of vials of every imaginable color (more than 4200 pigments), lending the name, Pigment, to the art supply store and laboratory, just opened in Tokyo. Pigment provides the latest colors, along with hard-to-find, rare pigments and tools used in art preservation, as well as brushes, special glues and binders, papers, canvas, wood frames and more.

Supplies are available online.
