Aesop launched a third signature store in New York City, and this time it’s in the West Village. The design by Melbourne-based architecture practice March Studio, a previous collaborator of the Australian cosmetics brand, pays tribute pays tribute to the bohemian feel of the area, and features a striking wooden rib-cage interior that creates the optical illusion of additional depth.
The storage shelves and counter are also crafted from bleached wood, and are matched by leather-wrapped flooring. A wall-suspended brass basin and a Louis Poulsen light fixture in a similar material heighten the artisanal vibe of the retail space. Aesop’s newest outlet stocks the brand’s full range of hair, body and skincare products.
