Aesop store by Marion Mouny, Lausanne – Switzerland

September 29th, 2016 by retail design blog

There’s no mountain high enough for Aesop, not even the Swiss Alps. We’re talking the ongoing expansion of the Australian cosmetics brand, and its sixth signature store in Switzerland in particular. Tucked away in a cobblestoned street in the historic heart of Lausanne, it’s quite compact, boasting a mere 17 sqm. of retail space.

But what it may lack in space, it makes up with a beautiful aesthetic inspired by Giò Ponti’s modernist interior of Hotel Royal Continental in Naples, and created by Aesop’s Paris-based in-house architect Marion Mouny. It’s an oasis of lacquered timber, acerro timber to be precise, captured by Ample Shelving, a sales counter, a demonstration sink, and wall paneling.

A pair of eye-catching vintage chandeliers by Paolo Venini from the 1960s not only lends the space a chic yet frivolous touch, but also help to balance out the ruggedness of the ceiling and flooring. Further furnishings comprise of two art deco stools that provide customers the opportunity to sit back for a beauty consult or to merely take in the gorge surrounds. The new Aesop boutique stocks the brand’s full range of skin, body and hair care products.

Designer/architect: Marion Mouny
