The australian brand Aesop opened their first shop in Scandinavia during 2014. The architects, In praise of shadows, names three sources for inspiration; the philosophy of Jun’ichiro Tanizaki and movies made by Lars von Trier and Ingmar Bergman.
The shop is divided in two parts, one more open and public and one more intimate. The materials are mostly plaster and wood, and the counter is an impressive piece of solid wood sculptured by tree-sculptor Lies-Marie Hoffman.
