So the skincare brand commissioned local studio Partners Hill to create a pop-up space to showcase its products.
The studio, led by Australian architect Timothy Hill, used locally sourced timber to create a boxy structure among shrubbery near the entrance to the Museum of Old and New Art.
Called Chamber of Light and Shadow, the installation was designed to offer visitors a quiet spot to retreat from the main festival.
Pumps installed behind metal panels dispensed sunscreen and cooling aloe vera aftersun lotion to sun-kissed festival goers. They were also offered scent-infused bracelets.
The product pumps were set in wooden boxes, which peeped through the foliage to frame views of the gallery's grounds and the dramatic coastal scenery.
Large brown medicinal jars, like those used by the company as containers for its skincare products, were used to support shelves beside these openings.
Aesop commissions a different designer for each of its stores, to ensure that no two are the same.
