Designed by Aesthetic Movement | Country: United States
“Inspired by the old world utilitarian ideal of making something that is “built to last,” Izola and Aesthetic Movement have curated a collection of whimsical objects with a masculine sense of antiquity. Made with great care and attention to detail, this series of functional every day staples are designed to be perfect men’s gifts. The products include flasks, soaps, candles, laundry bags, bamboo toothbrushes, handkerchiefs, brass desk objects, shower rings, ceramics and shower curtains.
While the collaboration with Aesthetic Movement began in 2009, Izola was originally founded in 2007 by Neil Rasmus and Richard Brandt as a company that produced innovative shower curtains for big box stores, such as Bed Bath and Beyond. In 2008 when Jesse James and Diane Shaw formed Aesthetic Movement, a design consultancy and showroom for upper echelon housewares and accessories brands, a partnership with Izola was formed. Since then, Izola has continued to evolve beyond the bathroom category into barware, desk, travel and other categories.”
