Aesop Shepherd's Bush store interior

Textural juxtapositions and an enveloping sense of calm

A collaboration with Parisian firm Tolila+Gilliland Atelier d’Architecture, the design of our signature store in Shepherd’s Bush, Westfield London, effects an aesthetic at once warm and restrained.

Coated in felt, the store’s walls signal a varied tactile experience throughout; floors of poured concrete, a banquette of worn leather by Isaac Reina, and a pared-back concrete sink coalesce to create respite from the centre’s fast-paced energy. Against a predominantly cool palette of pale grey, custom LED pendant lights by PSLab provide simple accents.

‘A mind lively and at ease can do with seeing nothing, and can see nothing that does not answer.’

Jane Austen
