Shop 348, Chadstone Shopping Centre. 1341 Dandenong Road, Chadstone 3148
Created in partnership with Mlkk Studio, Aesop Chadstone is deeply tethered to natural forms and geology, effecting an otherworldly calm.
The store introduces rough-hewn minerality to the surrounding retail environment. The entrance to the corner site is flanked by monolithic discarded fragments of locally sourced Basalt.
An angular concrete sink provides a place for product demonstrations, effecting both a continuation of the tonal palette, and a textural contrast with the rough-edged rock.
‘What were the good of stars if none looked on them / But mariners, astronomers and such!’
