Furnidec Design 2008: The photos

I'm finally able to post photos (click on them to see them larger) of the area we made for the Design Event and the Pan-Hellenic competition for furniture design in Pavilion 14 of T.I.F. during Furnidec Business. My brilliant colleague Ioanna Papadopoulou designed the whole construction and I designed the furniture silhouettes decorating the walls (with the help of our talented Maria Papathemeli on Illustrator!). I also supervised the set-up.

The items displayed by the Greek designers were mostly decorative pieces, but there were the big exceptions like chairs, tables and a seemingly intricate seating system, below, by Xristina Karakalpaki (it was her thesis as we found out ,and will be shown in Milan this April). The sundials are by Andreas Galanakis:

There were some interesting lamps by EON (Dimitris Birbilis and Alexis Oikonomidis), the unusual table at the front is again by Xristina Karakalpaki, the beautiful hangers at the back are by Kalliroi Spyridonos and the graphically inspired clocks are by Dionysis Pharaoh and Christina Papaleonida:

The bright green floor contrasted nicely with the red carpet and the dark grey walls. At the back, you can see the Pan-Hellenic competition for furniture design area, with the drawings and models of the contestants displayed in white "cuts" on the dark grey wall.

The desk at the front is by EON (Dimitris Birbilis and Alexis Oikonomidis):

And another panoramic view of the design area.
