A NEW SCENE OF CONTEMPORARY GREEKS
There is a unique story behind every producer: Architects that get inspiration by transformable morphs, designers that combine classical aesthetics of the 5th century BC with the abstract thoughts of Yves Klein, entrepreneurs who manage to recycle what was considered to be waste into useful and sustainable modern objects are some of the ideas. The materials can be cork, ceramine, tencel, plexiglas, marble, sea-grass – generally everything that can be seen in a new light.
