Aesop Mid Valley was designed with Malaysia’s tropical forests in mind, according to Aesop’s Head of Store Design Marianne Lardilleux.
Going into an Aesop store is always a treat — no two stores are designed the same, and the experience with each one is always different. The latest store to open is in Mid Valley, and it looks completely different from its sister store in 1 Utama Shopping Centre. Inspired by the form and hues of Malaysia’s tropical forests, we see solid Kempas timber planks used in the freestanding basins and counters, while off-white hues are contrasted against the dark wood, bringing to mind the inner florets of banana blossoms.
