A Los Angeles architecture firm took a unique approach when they were asked to decorate the shop's interior

Australian skin care company Aesop hired local architecture firm, Brooks + Scarpa, to renovate its flagship Los Angeles store that was built in 1929. The architecture firm went with an environmental solution: cardboard tubes acquired from a fashion district just two miles away.

The cardboard tubes were aligned vertically all around the establishment, spanning the walls, lights and furniture. Additional items such as counter tops, cabinets and display shelves were made out of recycled paper. Providing customers with a mirror and sink to test the store’s products, three vintage sinks were revived and placed in the middle of the store.
