From ancient Greece to art deco, mid-century modernism to contemporary minimalism, ANAKTAE influences are deep and diverse. Every limited-edition item is hand-made by master craftsmen in Greece, creating statement pieces that are both exclusive and unique.
Everything ANAKTAE do is defined by a neo-archaic aesthetic, a process of abstraction where form and function are perfectly aligned. From composing and curating interior spaces; or creating furniture, lighting, and objects, their thoughtful approach to design is deeply rooted in strong concepts.
Timeless elegance. ANAKTAE create modern classics. Mining our Greek heritage, archaic symbols and archetypal forms are refined to create striking new geometries. Drawing a line between the classical and contemporary, the studio ‘s modern classics are instantly recognisable.
Craftsmanship. ANAKTAE work closely with the finest master craftsmen all over Greece. Every piece is hand-made to order by specialist artisans, ensuring the same flawless finish. The studio embraces connoisseurs dedicated to the pursuit of perfect proportions and sublime craftsmanship.
Scale. As experienced architects and designers, the founders’ work is rich in scope and scale. ANAKTAE bring the same rigour and conceptual approach to grand projects or precious objects.
Materials. ANAKTAE use natural materials such as bronze, marble and wood with minimal adornment. Sourcing, exploring, and experimenting with these materials is integral to their design process. It takes rigorous research, specialist artisans and many subtle iterations to produce complex designs that appear deceptively simple.
ANAKTAE is a design studio founded in 2009 by industrial designer Dianna Karvounis and architect Vivian Philippa. Based in Athens, Greece, our studio works across the disciplines of architecture, interior and product design.
