Ciguë was founded by a group of architects, working together in partnership since 2003. Ciguë’s common purpose is to create and produce architecture, interiors, artworks and objects that combine intellectualism with craftsmanship and intuition; head, hand and heart combined.
They consider themselves makers as much as designers and their hands-on approach is literal. This way of working influences the Ciguë spirit strongly: a conscientious and a long-standing respect for the environments they work in.
Ciguë has consistently collaborated with global cosmetic brand Aesop including store fit-outs in Soho, Montmartre and Islington amongst others. Each store features a different interpretation of what a cosmetic store can look like. Their Covent Garden store has a charming, rustic style with green cement tiles and fiberglass shelving. The effect is that of a local apothecary. The store features plants to further enhance the sensation of nature within the store reflecting the brand’s ethos.
