About Aesop

Established in Melbourne in 1987, Aesop, named after the Greek philosopher, has grown to be known for its very fine skin, hair and body care products. Aesop nurtures an interest in intelligent and sustainable design, which is tangible in the sophisticated scents of its soaps and the ambience of its individually tailored environments. 

Aesop and 1zu33 have contentedly cooperated since 2013. Every step of the design process is coordinated with minute attention to detail, from developing the aesthetic ideas to the final stages of planning. Always rooted in deep historical research, the collaborative store designs are infused with architectural references or the work of local artists.
