Aesop has expanded its retail network in Hong Kong with a signature store at IFC Mall, and is a striking new collab with Boston-based architecture practice NADAAA. The interior design boasts a curvilinear balance that totally complies with Chinese design sensibilities. The left wall features ceiling-high shelves that sit on a band storage cabinets that extends to the far end of the premises, all in blonde wood.
A complementary structure that houses the sale counter, demonstration sinks and an embedded bench seat is situated opposite. Meticulously crafted contoured wooden fins are fitted to the ceiling, creating an undulating surface that filters light to mediate the geometries of the interior. The intricate modern design is anchored by sisal flooring. The new Aesop store carries the brand’s full range of skin, hair and body products.
