Aesop Duke of York Square
by Snøhetta

The Aesop Duke of York Square in London represents an intriguing fusion of futuristic and classic design.

It is the latest addition to Aesop’s series of uniquely designed boutiques around the world. The contrasts created by the rough surfaces of the walls against the soft, polished expression of the clear stainless-steel shapes, the play with color gradients, as well as the changes in light throughout the space, all underline a sense of depth to the design. Combined with the traditional arches and futuristic elements such as the sink, the design aims to trigger customer’s sense of curiosity.
