AESOP SINGAPORE

> SINGAPORE 2008

In our Singapore store, thirty kilometres of coconut husk string, a regional product, was used to construct a dynamic whole-ceiling light fixture. When combined en mass, the seemingly insignificant threads mesmerise and remind one of airline magazine flight maps.

We referenced the humble ball of twine with which Aesop wrap and detail their gift boxes. The entire store is framed with meticulously detailed grids that suspend twine from the ceiling.

The idea is to work with a sombre material palette in an unexpected way. We’ve used coir matting as carpet and marine plywood to detail the storage units, which also conceal a palette of Corbusier-inspired coloured wall panels.
