The Awesomeness of Aesop will hardly be news for any of you guys. Since their humble beginnings in 1987 in Melbourne, the brand has gone from strength to strength. Year in and year out, product after product, store after store – Aesop continues to smash it out of the ballpark with their commitment to superlative design. But not just the sort of design that spends a certain amount of money on expensive finishes and insists on ostentatious detailing and high-brow design. No sir.
Allow me to introduce you to our very dear friends, and Australia’s newest player in the A&D specifier market – Own World. With a motto of being personal, responsive and flexible, Own World believes the difference in it’s approach will often be felt, rather than seen. But don’t be fooled – their strong visual direction should not be underestimated. Aiming to invigorate the industry with new furniture and design solutions, Own World’s first showroom launched earlier this year on Stanley Street in Sydney’s Darlinghurst.
