Aesop installation by Cheungvogl, Hong Kong

December 13th, 2011 by retail design blog

Hong Kong-based Cheungvogl Architects created an installation for beauty brand Aesop which was on display within Hong Kong’s I.T Hysan One flagship store. The commission was a continuation of the company’s reputation for presenting their product in architecturally remarkable retail spaces.

When developing the temporary display, Cheungvogl was influenced by a black and white image of hundreds of floating lanterns, for which they created an exhibition space with a delicate luminosity. Eight hundred resin boxes were arranged atop steel rods of varying lengths, creating the sense that each unit was ascending at its own pace, as if being drawn upward by an invisible thread.

The overall work is enclosed by a translucent fabric with only one side being open to the street. lighting is dim, creating an intimate atmosphere, interrupting the street life and landscape of the surrounding retail environment. Now past its temporary installation, the work is being reformed as a permanent counter on the first floor of the I.T hysan one.
