Greek natural beauty | The Manila Times

Once inside the Korres store at Makati City’s Power Plant Mall, the Full Circle story unfolds, inviting visitors to discover the essence of the Full Circle’s six distinctive labs.

The new Korres store officially opened at Power Plant Mall in Makati City. Dedicated to Greek natural beauty, visually expressing the art of science and the soul of Greece, this boutique is an open invitation to all to join the Full Circle universe of Korres – a beautiful journey from seed to skin and back.

Born and manufactured in Greece and founded in 1996 by Giorgos Korres, a pharmacist, and Lena Korres, a chemical engineer, Korres is inspired by their homeland, nature, pharmacy heritage, science and aesthetics. All these elements are visualized in the new Korres boutique through innovative forms of aesthetic expression, the brainchild of Greek architect Manos Babounis.

Details and materials of traditional architecture, creating a fascinating play of shadow and light, meet folk culture in a shop that becomes the gateway to noble, poetic Greek natural beauty. The predominant white color is associated with spaces that best reflect the brand’s roots – the pharmacy and laboratory, as well as attempting to bathe the boutique in the bright light of the Aegean in a luminous symphony with the deep blue of Greek typography fulfill.

Inside the store, the Korres Full Circle story unfolds, inviting visitors to discover the essence of the Full Circle’s six distinctive labs: soil lab, extraction lab, molecular lab, formulation lab, design lab, recycling lab. Products are displayed on white wood carved shelves, a homage to the iconic Aegean aesthetic combined with industrial metal shelving on a wall covered in modern tiles. All part of the Korres brand concept based on contrasts. An overall modern, fresh, minimalist interpretation of Korres’ heritage and ethos.
