Aesop Covent Garden

Melbourne skincare firm Aesop channels Covent Garden's leafy Italian piazza...

Melbourne cosmetics firm Aesop has opened its sixth London store in Covent Garden; in homage to the area’s Italianate piazza, Parisian architects Ciguë chose a floor of engraved green cement and an indoor window box of creeping vegetation that ties in with the neighbouring gardens of St Paul’s Church. Ciguë chose four key design references for their interior – a Virginia Woolf quote, a Francis Bacon painting, a Henry Moore sculpture and an excerpt from Beauty and the Beast – and used a clean, light-filled whitewash backdrop with some exposed copper accents.
