Aesop Ginza has a red brick interior, which references the brick-tiled facade that was previously painted over by the upstairs tenants.
Brick courses infill the spaces between wooden shelves where products are displayed, while brick units with wooden surfaces house sinks.
Photography is by Alessio Guarino.
Here's a few sentences from Jo Nagasaka:
We renovated the 35 year shoe shop "Milano Shoes" into new Aesop Shop in Ginza.
The owner of MIlano Shoes put the brick tiles on the facade of the shop to create a "high-quality mood.".
But when other tenats of upstair moved into the space they hate the bricks and painted them. Then we designed brick interior in honor of "Milano Shoes".
