Aesop Incheon shelving

A space of serenity amid everyday bustle

Our first temporary store at an airport is located at Terminal Two of the Seoul Incheon International Airport—at the ends of two travelators that connect the duty-free retail area and boarding gates. In this brisk-paced transportation hub, our in-house Design Department created a place of respite that evokes traditional Korean houses.

A patinated bronze façade, curving inwards to define the entry, subtly marks a departure from the busy environment beyond. Inside, walls covered with earthy-hued paint inspired by Korean hanok impart an atmosphere of serenity. The bronze sales counter and sink create connection between the interior and the façade; a bench made of the same material invites visitors to take a moment’s repose. Rows of shelving protruding from the interior walls form a modulated system that can be effortlessly repurposed when the store closes.

Select Aesop skin and body care staples are available, together with several exclusive offerings. We are also pleased to advice that limited editions of products are available exclusively at Aesop Incheon.

You are warmly invited to explore this elegant space, should your travels take you to Seoul Incheon International Airport.
