AETHERsf is Now Open

01/25/13 by: Michael van Vliet

AETHERsf is now officially open for business. Located at The Proxy in San Francisco, AETHERsf is our first stand-alone retail shop. It was constructed from three 8′ x 9.6′ x 40′ shipping containers and features a custom glass-encased cantilevered lounge, reclaimed oak floors, and a “dry-cleaner” style conveyor belt.

The store is a continuation of our design relationship with Thierry Gaugain, who was visual mastermind behind the AETHERstream, and a new partnership with architectural firm Envelop A+D. Chris French Metal provided all of the structural and architectural metal fabrication All construction work was sourced locally in San Francisco.

489 Hayes Street
San Francisco, CA 94102

Store hours:
Tues – Sat 11-7
Sun 11-6

  1. Great building my company was involved in with a company that converted 155 shipping containers into living qtrs and other units for cooking and showers for Panama,

  2. awsome, wow is all i have to say at the moment, what a genius design for a retail store congrats. to the crews, they are amazing looking fwd to visiting the next time i am in berkeley maybe my son can put one of these (one story only) in his backyard for me to live in love, love thanks for the well done video

  3. Fantastically thought out, well executed, and expertly designed retail space! A credit to all involved. A true reflection of your brand Aether. We have a similar concept here in the UK – for multiple stores, but none feature the integral conveyor belt in yours, its simply mind blowing! Hurry up and come to the UK!

  4. Brilliant idea and design. what would it cost? how can I get 1? I wonder if this concept can be used for residential units. I wonder how you could insulate the compartments.
