Aesop's third Singapore outlet is more feathery light sculpture than traditional skincare boutique, what with its entire frontage and ceiling being made from 30km of local coconut husk twine, hung from a geometric grid. Surrounded by the neon lights and bright colours of Singapore's Millenia Walk shopping centre, the long twine curtain is an eye-catching natural distraction. The innovative design is the brainchild of Aesop's Australian founder Dennis Paphitis and architect Rodney Eggleston of Melbournebased March Studio. The twine theme extends to the string used as a finishing touch on purchases, while the choice of other materials coir matting on the floor and marine ply for the cabinetry is equally ecofriendly. The washbasin (as seen in all Aesop stores, allowing customers to try the products) is a reliably familiar feature.
