Pure cosmetics meet pure ceramics
Over the years Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics has grown as a global brand, not only through its exceptional products but also its attitude and processes towards environmentally conscious design. It's no surprise that Lush chose to use Mosa ceramic tiles in over 40 of its stores worldwide - we share the same goal in getting closer to nature and feeling responsible for the products we make.
We spoke with store design buyer Nick Gumery of Lush Fresh Handmade Cosmetics to learn more about the design and product philosophy and why working with companies like Mosa is so important to them.
Gumery: 'My work is primarily to make sure we're open to new innovations in design and materiality, whilst keeping a close eye on environmental impact. Many of the elements in our store designs are made from reclaimed wood - this could be the shelving, wall panels or other furniture. We find and store reclaimed wood in our design warehouse - this way we can easily send it or have it collected by carpenters who build some of the furniture for our stores. We have our own research and development workshop so that we can test out new materials and designs, building prototypes to see if they're good for future store re-fits and can be rolled out at large - that's a pretty special feature of Lush stores. We use Mosa ceramic floor tiles - you're walking on 100% natural material. Mosa believes in a cradle to cradle philosophy like Lush, where all products and processes are part of a cycle that really aims for less impact on the environment.'
