Aesop: Taxonomy of Design

Aesop’s Taxonomy of Design microsite looks at their unique stores around the world, the designers behind them and the objects in them.

“Taxonomy of Design is a digital compendium of our signature stores which pays tribute to the creative processes, materials and features that distinguish Aesop spaces, and to the designers and architects with whom we collaborate. This archive is intended not only to document the creation of Aesop stores but also to celebrate a unique approach to retail architecture and design that is respectful of community, culture and history.”
