INSIDE World Festival of Interiors announces retail winner from RAI Amsterdam
“Sophisticated and informed” store design by Aesop
INSIDE World Festival of Interiors has announced the best interior designs of 2019 across the categories of Health and Education, Offices and Retail. The annual awards, which started at RAI Amsterdam, encompass the best interior designs from the past 12 months from around the globe.
The winner in the category retail is Aesop Bondi Junction Signature Store (Syndey, Australia) by mlkk Studio. Judges commented that the design offered a “sophisticated” and “informed” design solution. The store design intended to retain the construction framework as incomplete and exposed the raw pine structure surface in order to celebrate the beauty of incompleteness. The entire shop front is formed purely by the exposed pine stud framing and glazing and stimulates explorations of several other materials to enhance this concept. Atelier tao+c was also highly commended for their design of the JHW Store in Zhengzhou, China.
