suria klcc arguably has long been kuala lumpur's most prestigious shopping mall, and it's right here where aesop has expanded its presence with a fourth store in the city. for this retail space the australian sought the expertise of melbourne-based practive russell & george which created an all-white interior with subtle geometric detailing. adding depth to the design are sleek, floor-to-ceiling metal tubes which optically add a sense of volume to the compact space. the sales desk at the back mimics the linearity with vertical stripes of stone. at the center of the store a demonstration sink is situated, crafted from contrasting copper. rows of sunken ceiling spotlights, combined with backlit shelving, add a theatrical glow to the space. the new aesop store carries the brand's full range of skin, body and hair care products. location: suria klcc, 241 jalan p. ramlee, shop c32 [central kuala lumpur].
