Aesop Moko interior

Structured simplicity and soothing restraint

Created in partnership with Melbourne-based practice Russell & George, the design for our space in Hong Kong’s Moko retail centre makes clever use of the diminutive space by means of a simple, restrained material palette.

Drawing inspiration from the traditional Hong Kong verandah—a locally familiar place for contemplation amid the city’s bustle—the interior features warm-hued European Oak and accents of blackened steel, punctuated by bursts of greenery from potted plants. Abundant natural light from floor-to-ceiling windows effects a bright and welcoming atmosphere.

‘Be content to seem what you really are.’

Marcus Aurelius
