A Clean, Well-Lit Apothecary

Lisa Michaels January 27, 2012

On our next trip to Paris we're planning a visit to the futuristic Marais outpost of Australian company Aesop.

Designed by Ciguë, Aesop's new boutique in the Marais is a minimalist space featuring white concrete walls embedded with rows of metal saucers (repurposed plumbing pipe caps) that hold products in orderly rows. As in all Aesop stores, the space is part laboratory, part art installation.

Above: Polished pipe caps hold the products, like dishes proffered by ghost butlers.

Above: A polished sculptural concrete counter, inset with a sink made from a large industrial plumbing cap.

Above: The simple, industrial aesthetic underscores the organic focus of the Aesop product line.
