Aesop opens in Osaka Japan

| June 5, 2014 | 1 Comment

Aesop opens in Osaka Japan, a materiality steeped in local history. Aesop is pleased to announce the opening of our first signature store in Osaka, designed in collaboration with the Simplicity team under the leadership of Shinichiro Ogata. Located in the lively Shinsaibashi area, the space embodies a refined industrial aesthetic that pays homage to a time when Shinsaibashi housed an important timber yard and its streets were lined with storehouses.

High ceilings are dressed with latticed weathered-timber shelves, which are accented with elements of blackened steel. Chosen for its local historical significance, this material references the iron bridge that once tethered the north and south districts of Chūō-ku ward.

Customers can explore and select from a complete range of skin, hair and body care, distinguished by botanical and laboratory-generated ingredients of the highest quality. Trained consultants are able to offer advice about products best suited to individual clients’ needs.

Aesop was founded in Melbourne in 1987 and today offers its superlative formulations in signature stores and counters around the world, and online. As the company evolves – new stores open soon in London, Sydney and Stockholm – meticulously considered design remains paramount to the creation of each space. Aesop value all human endeavours undertaken with intellectual rigour, vision, and a nod to the whimsical.

Every Aesop product is made with the same attention to detail we believe should be applied to life at large, taking into consideration a diversity of needs as well as seasonal and environmental conditions. They advocate the use of our formulations as part of a balanced life that includes a healthy diet, sensible exercise, a moderate intake of red wine, and a regular dose of stimulating literature.
