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.

Countertop of oiled German oak and near-invisible steel shelves provide subtle contrasting accents. Aged sinks salvaged from a 1950s farm tether the heritage-listed building to its previous life as an early twentieth-century dairy store. Beyond the retail area, which occupies approximately half the store’s 80 square metres, a concept room provides the opportunity to host events; an additional space services Aesop’s German online store.
