Seeking to honour the traditional role of craftsmanship in construction, our in-house Design Department chose to make artful and extensive use of copper throughout Aesop Fashion Walk. One hundred and thirty-six pieces of the soft-sheened metal wrap the façade; each has been worked by hand, lending it unique form and character.
Born of unorthodox inspiration (building regulations stipulated that a portion of the storefront remain open for ventilation), the façade bears a wave-like sculptural form that opens to air and light gradually as it climbs. Inside the compact space, blackened steel shelves are complemented by the interplay of subtle lighting on the copper-wrapped counter and demonstration sink.
‘The return makes one love the farewell.’
