New cosmetic brands are shaking up codes and moving away from past stereotypes. By betting on clean and tailor-made formulas, they are betting on ingredients and nutri-cosmetics or vegan or non-generic products. Beauty becomes identity and the relationship one has with brands is becoming more intimate. In this context, these new players are also reinventing the retail experience. Often digital natives, these labels capitalise on places (no longer places of sale but places of life) where the experience, thought out by design studios, is as important as the product itself. Here the reference to the laboratory is no longer just a guarantee of efficiency (too often exploited in the past), but physically inspires these new salons with their singular identity.

After having imposed its identity and virtual experience in the United States and France, the native digital brand « Glossier » was able to transcribe its unique codes in its first boutique in New York. Behind mysterious translucent glass: a science-fiction lab-like setting designed by architects Gachot Studios and Peterson Rich Office.

In the heart of an 18th century Parisian building, you will find the Japanese beauty salon named « EN », designed by the Archiee studio. EN refers to « beauty » in Japanese and to « circle » and « connection » in this subtle language. Three interpretations that inspired the architects to make the space and its history speak for itself.

Officine Universelle Buly in Tokyo

The Officine Universelle Buly in Tokyo is a unique blend of 19th century French style and an ultra-connected futuristic apothecary shop. In a very similar spirit, the Meldy Pharmacy created by the Sergio Mannino studio innovates in the retail landscape.
