Aesop’s latest Hong Kong signature store, designed in collaboration with US-based architectural firm NADAAA, opened recently in ifc. The brand has been a pioneer in all the design front – especially the architectural aspect. Each store front is specially designed for the best use of space and local materials. Guess what they have used locally this time? I will show you a few pictures of the store and event first and let you know at the very end.
The use of humble, everyday materials is key to Aesop‘s design – sisal flooring, blonde wood for fittings and ceiling, and fine-grained neutral fabric that covers the walls.
The ceiling decor is one of my 3 favorites of the shop design. It gives a very clever and warm lighting effect to the shop.
: The Event :
On 25 July 2013, LUSHGAZINE is invited by Aesop and educational charity organization Room to Read to co-host an in-store event at the beautiful new IFC Mall Aesop shop. 10% of the night’s proceedings was donated to RtR for their various educational programs on reading and writing, girls’ education, book publishing and more.

So what’s done locally? The sink – you can hardly find any local craftsman who can do such a cool fine piece anymore!
