Archidose has a great post that provides some insight into the design work Jun Aoki has developed for six Louis Vuitton stores.

Much like the Hariri sister’s design for Juan Valdez, this design veils the existing behind a thin layer of contemporary material. In the case of the coffee shop, stainless steel mesh is used. Here, a custom glass that is sometimes opaque and sometimes clear makes its greatest impression at the transition between the two. Two layers of frit are applied to insulated glass to create a layered effect that changes as one moves. It’s an interesting effect both close-up and far away.
