Meet Down The Stairs, an extension of Japanese label, Art & Science. This foray into the food space allows the lifestyle brand’s aesthetic and vision to be executed in a new channel outside of fashion and furniture. Sonya Park’s original concept was to create a restaurant exclusively for her staff, but the idea has extended into a complete eatery for longtime supporters of the brand.
Housed in a sunny, open kitchen space, Down The Stairs features a minimalist café and grocery store that offers up simple Japanese meals, pasta, paninis, coffee, wine, kitchenware, T-shirts, and accessories. Located literally downstairs from Art & Science’s mens’ and womens’ clothing and houseware stores, this little corner of Aoyama is quickly growing into a mini empire.
