Aēsop Seoul IFC

Russell & George


Drawing inspiration from traditional Korean construction and the planning principle, baesanimsu, Aésop Seoul IFC is an ethereal space of contrasts.  Bright copper panelling frames the entrance, while soft curvilinear forms of concrete render and aged copper are set against a soft, but saturated colour accent of scalloped curtaining within. The overall effect is one of modernity steeped in tradition.
