Australian skincare specialist Aesop recently unveiled its newest New York City retail location in Grand Central Station. A company known for its unique store interiors and designs, Aesop chose to work with Jeremy Barbour of Tacklebox, who used 1,800 back issues of the New York Times to construct the kiosk. The papers were stacked and pressed into rough blocks, and were then affixed to large powder-coated steel blocks for protective purposes.
Aesop emphasizes the use of plant-based ingredients and antioxidants in its skincare lines, and when looking to expand, the company pinpoints locations that enable them to add to the existing environmental characteristics of the area. In partnering with talented designers and architects to construct their stores, Aesop also demonstrates its appreciation for using materials with interesting texture, color, and history.
