London sets scene for apothecary chain

Designer boutique and beauty store Space NK is launching Apothecary Space NK, a chain of beauty outlets in London to be followed by sites in other cities. Interiors are by Hodgkinson & Co. Lemonade Design handled identity and graphics.

The original boutique in Covent Garden was designed by Hodgkinson & Co. The group then created the interiors of the apothecary which was added to the store last year (DW 21 April 1995).

Two Apothecary Space NK sites have opened in the past fortnight, in Brook Street and Bishopsgate. “There was an obvious opportunity in the marketplace for a chain as there is so much demand for the product,” says Space NK managing director Nicola Kinnaird.

A further six sites are due to open in the next year and it is “highly likely” that Hodgkinson & Co will be involved again, confirms Kinnaird.
