Aesop Kyoto at 97 Aburaya-Cho Sanjo was created in collaboration with the Simplicity team under the leadership of Shinichiro Ogata. The design draws inspiration from Jun’ichirō Tanizaki’s In Praise of Shadows, the aesthetics of 14th-century actor and playwright Zeami Motokiyo, Kyoto’s machiya townhouses, and the vertical alignment of Japanese text.
