2017 Australian Interior Design Awards / Shortlist / Retail Interior
Drawing on the original design intent of the space the refurbished Aésop Doncaster space reminds the occupant of the joys and subtleties of bathing. Within the space a central sculptural element clad stainless steel has been added to house the product range and testing sinks. The form of this element is derived in response to artist Marcel Duchamp's sculptures and studies. It is an element that is in complete contrast with the existing interior, thus establishing a dialogue between old and new.
The aim of the design is to create a space that would allow the customer to explore the expanded Aésop product range, remind the viewer of the original design and allow new elements within the space to explore progressive ideas surrounding tactility and form.
