Aesop Headquarter

Interior Architecture

Retail Store Design
Headquarter Design

We have designed the facade and interior of the Aesop’s German Headquarter in Cologne. The original building designed by Karl Band is a landmark representation of the prevailing post-war architecture and part of the Historical Archive. 

Referencing the city’s art history, the concept of the ground and first floor retail area is a representation of the back of an artist’s canvas.

Honouring its uncelebrated beauty and hidden poetry, raw linen covers the walls and furniture, creating a warm and calming atmosphere. The second and third provide office space, meeting areas, and a bathroom and kitchen. The fourth and final floor is a dedicated area for thinking, reflection and meditation.

This project has been featured in the Innsides and Taxonomy of Design.
