Aesop stores by Torafu Architects, Tokyo, Yokohama » Retail Design Blog

Quote:
At Aesop Shin-Marunouchi, the OSB has been stained with a brown colour to distinguish the store with its neighbours within the bright surrounding environment. The central band of display seen stretched across the back wall binds the store space to a single point of focus, naturally drawing customers towards the products.

Chunky chipboard surfaces have been sanded and stained to look like marble at this Aesop skincare shop in Tokyo by Japanese studio Torafu Architects (+ slideshow).


The Japanese must have better looking OSB than us.

Imported from somewhere, and only the best.

The military paid movers to come pack and ship your household goods. Going from the US to Japan, it was expected that not everything would make it. Going from Japan to the US, nothing turned up missing or broken, ever. It seemed like every task they did, they performed the task as if someone's life depended on it.
