American Aesop Hub
New York, USA
Nestled amongst skyscrabers in Manhattan's Flatiron district, Australian skin care brand Aesop has taken root on American soil with a new office space. Tacklebox Architecture was selected to design the New York office and American headquarters for Aesop Skin Care. The design brief calls for architectural modesty with a domestic quality and at the core of the office, an almost 10-meter-long Vipp kitchen invites for communal gatherings.
Julia Collis, Retail Design Creative Manager at Aesop
'Our offices remain modest in design ambition, favouring quality over opulence. The clean, restrained aesthetic of a Vipp kitchen aligns seamlessly with the New York office.'
Matching the standard of their signature stores, each individually conceived in collaboration with local studios, Tacklebox has conceived an office that exudes the same attention to detail, interior design quality and smell of subtle aromas. Influx of natural light from skylights meets a restrained material palette of burnished concrete, industrial woolfelt, grey-stained plywood, and polished stainless steel trim. The long Vipp kitchen is a place for pauses, gathering and events that celebrate Aesop values of food, literature, the arts and community as integral to the environment.
