The Aesop Store in Burnside Village SA features a distinctive perforated timber panelling made using ArmourPanel decorative plywood from Big River Group. Selected by Kerstin Thompson Architects for its ‘materiality and versatility’, Big River’s ArmourPanel in Blackbutt provides a signature look to the store’s interiors, creating a rich, robust and inviting ambience.

The warm hue of ArmourPanel Blackbutt ply perfectly complements Aesop’s premium skin, hair and body products that line the shelves. ArmourPanel combines its rich visual appeal with acoustic features, making it a highly versatile material for use in perforated screening, shelving, countertop, wall lining and flooring applications.

The Blackbutt plywood’s durability ensures high resistance to wear, making it especially useful in retail environments with heavy foot traffic.
