The Guild of Artisans a certain radiance tribute at Aesop Mitte – Ceramic, Drawing inspiration, historical craft guilds around the world, Aesop’s Gift Kits
Aesop’s first German signature store resides on Alte Schönhauser Strasse in the capital’s central borough of Mitte. Crafted in collaboration with local architects from Weiss-heiten, it marries elements of historical Berlin with Bauhaus and contemporary influences. The interior assumes a palette of sea-green and a quietly clinical aesthetic, inspired by Gerhard Richter’s abstract, monochromatic canvases, and by the city’s industrial history and everyday charm. Handmade raw concrete tiles cover the ceiling, walls and floor creating a sense of having wandered into Berlin Alexanderplatz station, or a hidden forest glade.
