Aesop Mitte bright green store interior

A quietly clinical aesthetic in Mitte

Our inaugural German signature store resides on Alte Schönhauser Strasse in the capital’s central borough of Mitte. Created in partnership with local architects from Weiss-heiten, it marries elements of historical Berlin with Bauhaus and contemporary influences.

The interior’s sea-green palette evinces a quietly clinical aesthetic inspired by Gerhard Richter’s monochromatic canvases, and by the city’s industrial history. Handmade raw concrete tiles cover the ceiling, walls and floor, redolent of Berlin Alexanderplatz station.

Aged sinks salvaged from a 1950s farm tether the heritage-listed building to its previous life as an early twentieth-century dairy store. Beyond the retail area, a concept room provides the opportunity to host events; an additional space services our German online store.
