Aesop – iphiGenia »Evolution« winners interview

Aesop – the Australian company creates skin, hair and body care products. They are an exceptional example of a company bringing together gender, culture and social commitment in an outstanding overall design approach that is both respectful and sensitive.

What does the term »beautiful …
