The Duke of York Square store was designed with Snøhetta and partly inspired by the opening scenes of classic Bond films

Skin care brand Aesop‘s new store in London’s Chelsea neighborhood was designed in partnership with architecture and interior design firm Snøhetta. The Duke of York Square store was in part inspired by the opening scenes of classic James Bond films.

The shop features earthy pale rose walls, a central column and twelve arches that curve up and across to the store’s perimeter. These create intimate zones positioned around a large circular demonstration sink that seems to hover in space, inviting visitors to come and experience product consultations.
