Aesop UTC

Aesop UTC tap

Aesop UTC’s design is governed by curvilinear forms reminiscent of the shoreline, evident from the moment of entry, with its rounded tempered glass storefront.

Our inaugural San Diego signature store pays homage to the area’s rugged natural beauty and its coastal environs. Spread across approximately 200 canyons and hills, the region’s undulating geography is cleaved in two by the San Diego river, which flows to the Pacific Ocean.

Situated within the Westfield UTC retail complex, the store was created in collaboration with Toronto firm superkül. Its design is governed by curvilinear forms reminiscent of the shoreline, evident from the moment of entry, with its rounded tempered glass storefront.

Deep blue powder-coated steel shelving frames the space, echoing San Diego’s stratification of the natural and the built. In the centre of the store, a monolithic Calacatta marble sink offers a place for product demonstrations.
