Cheungvogl have beautifully designed the I.T HYSAN ONE flagship store with the surprise element of sound, scent and touch attached to some of the eight hundred resin boxes. An installation with an industrial feel carefully lit to accentuate the feel that each of these boxes is being drawn upward by an invisible thread.

‘Aesop has created an installation in Hong Kong’s I.T HYSAN ONE flagship store that builds on the reputation for architecturally remarkable retail spaces.
Cheungvogl architects, inspired by a black and white image of hundreds of floating lanterns, have imbued the I.T HYSAN ONE exhibition space with a similar delicate luminosity. Eight hundred resin boxes are arranged atop steel rods of varying lengths, creating the sense that each box is ascending at its own pace, as if being drawn upward by an invisible thread. Some boxes hold Aesop formulations while others are designed to reward visitors’ curiosity through unexpected sound, scent and touch.’
