Explanation

The second half of this sentence describes how aesthetics are a major part of the work of the company, so you need a word for the blank that means something like “permeates.” Saturates is close, but it has no partner (irradiate means either “to expose to radiation” or “to illuminate”). Underpins and undergirds fit the meaning of the sentence perfectly.

Underpins, undergirds are best fit!
