singapore: aesop shop-in-shop opening

© aesop - the store interior references traditional medical laboratories

meanwhile across the pacific in singapore, aesop already managed two stores but has now added a strategically located shop-in-shop on orchard road, the city's most prominent shopping boulevard. situated on the ground floor of tangs department store, the new outlet has been designed by russell & george, an architecture + design practice based in both melbourne and rome. as always, aesop's shop interiors incorporate compelling design references, and this time it's traditional medical laboratories of the early to mid-20th century. the design uses a palette of ivory and soft sea green while a black-tiled countertop reiterates the retail space’s utilitarian aesthetic and recasts the modest tile in a scientific manner. european oak has been used for the shelves and flooring, and offer a warm contrast. aesop's new shop-in-shop carries the brand's full range of skin, body and hair care products. location: 310 orchard road, level 1 [orchard west].
