Our long-time brand partners at Izola presented Aesthetic Movement with an opportunity to create a retail concept store in a former bike repair shop in Brooklyn’s Boerum Hill. We conceptualized an amalgamation of the coffee shop, newsstand, stationer, pharmacy, and housewares store — offering multiple reasons to walk through the door each day. The open, light-filled space was designed with subtle changes in material and texture to define the different product zones, resulting in an intimate neighborhood refuge that exudes modernity, warmth, and familiarity, while providing an alternative to the corporate anchors of Main Street. Curated offerings include locally roasted, private label coffee, select housewares, small-batch apothecary products with a focus on natural ingredients, and an international newspaper and magazine selection focused on food, politics, fashion, design, and culture. Throughout the store, a high priority has been placed on the discerning gift-giver, with an unabashed appreciation for excellence in design.
Aesthetic Movement is a think tank for smart, creative collaborations and a harbinger of style. We believe that considered design and frequent brushes with beauty can enhance the overall quality of life, and we aim to contribute to that end with every project and partnership we undertake. Through the creation of relationships, products, and environments, Aesthetic Movement endeavors to move hearts and minds by advocating the extraordinary â€“ not proliferating the ordinary. Aesthetic Movement (A/M) provides a range of services for discerning clients in the gift, home, jewelry, and personal accessories industries. The integration of our award-winning design with our sales and marketing expertise enables us to provide clients with the most comprehensive solutions. At A/M we can oversee projects from concept to market, or we can tailor our services to fit clientsâ€™ individual needs.
