THE UNIT STORE gathers well-made goods with an eye for contemporary aesthetic that inspire our daily life. We create a universe for brands we love and present their unique philosophy and stories through our online and physical stores. Through The Unit Journal, our online journal, we provide in-depth articles and interviews about the brands and designers we love.
THE UNIT STORE is a subsidiary of Working Unit Limited. Working Unit Limited's journey began in 2003 with founders Go Urano and Carlos Granon sharing a passion to find brands with strong identity and authentic story that could resonate in Asian markets. They first discovered Moleskine, the legendary notebooks, when it was still an unknown stationery brand. They brought it to Asia and developed it into a thriving brand with over 2,000 retailers carrying it in Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Singapore, and 18 dedicated shops.
They developed a talent to identify high potential brands at their very inception and turn them into iconic ones. Some noteworthy success stories are the launch and development of brands like Daniel Wellington, Rains, Olivia Burton and Bellroy.
