Aesop Perth City store interior

A calming retreat from the bustling city beyond.

The design for our second signature store in Perth, as for our Claremont space, was created in partnership with Melbourne firm Kerstin Thompson Architects.

An understated palette of black Japanese timber, steel and concrete creates a calming retreat from the hurried energy prevailing outside. The carpet and lighting reinforce a sense of quietude, while a splash of yellow provides a contrasting yet complementary vibrancy.

Latticed shelving effects a screen completed by product display. Exploiting the irregular plan of the tenancy, this presents towards the shopfront to invite the view of passers-by, while also forming an intimate interior enclosure.

‘The essence of the beautiful is unity in variety.’

Felix Mendelssohn
