Aesop Kyoto - Simplicity

Once more the clear policy of bespoke stores for each new location has enabled Aesop to express something of the spirit of Kyoto through this elegant, beautifully detailed interior. The Japanese designers Simplicity have drawn subtly on vernacular devices such as the hanging cloth screens and the boldly minimal groupings of contrasting elements and materials to say something about the relationship between the product and the city site. Using Aesop's distinctive bottles sculpturally to counterbalance the fragility of the black screens is masterful. Interesting to note that Simplicity evoke Tanizaki's In Praise Of Shadows as inspiration here.
