The interior plan of the Hankyu Umeda for Aesop, an Australian skincare brand. The existing store on the same floor was relocated to a larger area.

Inspired by the bi-color pattern found in the train body design of Hankyu Trains, we used the official color “Hankyu maroon” for the fixtures and walls and the ivory from the train roof for the product shelves. The central sink and the POS counter, which are reminiscent of the station concourse, gently curve to draw the flow of customers to the rear of the store. The curved cross-sectional shape of the product shelves can create a background of the products that reflects light softly; and at the same time, the shape is also linked to the design of the arch ceiling in the concourse from the former Hankyu Umeda Station. The top plate of the sink and the POS counter, which are required to be durable due to their long use, have vibration finish stainless steel. The illumination light reflecting against the sink-top gently illuminates products and customers' hands.

We aimed to create a space with appeal even in a busy environment by using colors with the motif of the Hankyu Trains, which is also the impressive scenery in local people's minds.
