Aesop store in Singapore by March Studio

Melbourne architects March Studio have designed a new shop interior for Aesop. They hung 30 km of coconut-husk string from the ceiling of the new shop in Singapore the Australian skincare brand Aesop.

Here’s some more information from Aesop:

In our Singapore store, thirty kilometres of coconut husk string, a regional product, was used to construct a dynamic whole-ceiling light fixture. When combined en mass, the seemingly insignificant threads mesmerise and remind one of airline magazine flight maps.

Aesop Director Dennis Paphitis says, “Geography, climate and light all inform which path we take with our design decisions. For Singapore, we referenced the humble ball of twine with which we wrap and detail our gift boxes. The entire store is framed with meticulously detailed grids that suspend twine from the ceiling. The idea is to work with a sombre material palette in an unexpected way. We’ve used coir matting as carpet and marine plywood to detail our storage units which conceal a palette of Corbusier-inspired coloured wall panels.”

Aesop Store in Notting Hill, London


After the first Aesop store in London, which opened in 2008, the Aesop’s group decided to open a new outlet for their clientele in Westbourne Grove, Notting Hill. 

The shop is located in an old jewel-sized store, where they decided to change a little, respecting its classically understated elegance, inherent warmth and hearteningly abundant light. Their intention is to offer their range of skin, hair and body products in a space reminiscent of a welcoming drawing room. This store continues the Aesop tradition of including distinct design details that acknowledge the neighbourhood’s streetscape.

Aesop Armadale Shop by Ryan Russell, Australia

Aesop_new_store_Armadale_Australia_via yatzer_4

Aesop’s newest store in Armadale, Australia, had been designed by Paphitis in cooperation with Melbourne architect  Ryan Russell.

The store is located in a very small space but it offered enormous potential according to the architects. We made use of light, colour and texture instead of focusing on size. The design allows Aesop products to be displayed both inside and outside the store,connecting us to the street.’

Just like the Aesop shop that is located in Sydney, the largest walls of the shop are used to display the Aesop’s products.
