ANAKTAE derives from the ancient Greek word anaktor, meaning ‘palace’. The designers devised a variation that reflects the brand’s exclusivity, individuality and feminine quality: the ‘ae’ suffix is the female first person plural in Greek. In Minoan and Mycenaean Greece, the anaktor was much more than a royal residence: it was the heart of civic and cultural life, where the most skillful artists lived and worked alongside the ruling elite.

Potters and priests, soldiers and sculptors, playwrights and philosophers, kings and courtesans all had their place in these self-contained universes – creative powerhouses where the acme of ancient Greek civilization flourished. So too, ANAKTAE studio embraces artisans and connoisseurs dedicated to the pursuit of perfect proportions, quality craftsmanship, and contemporary classics. Distinctive and unique, Anaktae has an intangible mystery that transcends expectations and categorizations.

We compose, construct and curate interior worlds.
Anaktae bridges the disciplines of architecture, interior decoration and product design. From furniture to lighting, objects to interiors, all our work has a distinct aesthetic that emerges from this integrated approach.
We are inspired by context and craftsmanship.
Based in Greece, we collaborate with international property developers and home owners, retailers and hoteliers, architects and decorators, as well as cultural foundations, museums, and galleries. Although our work is global in scope, we are passionately detail-driven, overseeing every stage of design, production and installation. We specialize in bespoke solutions and every piece is hand-made to order.
We build relationships, not just spaces and objects
Each project is a new relationship. We engage in a creative dialogue with every client to develop a shared vision for their space. We work with hand-picked suppliers whom we trust to deliver the highest quality materials. We have forged partnerships with the finest craftsmen in Greece, ensuring that everything we make has the same flawless finish
We create modern classics
Our design philosophy draws a line between the classical and contemporary. Mining our Greek heritage, we refine archaic symbols and structures to develop striking new geometries. Pairing shapes and patterns to their essence, we create archetypal forms whose dynamism derives from their innate harmony.
We believe in the power of understatement.
Our studio ethos is profoundly simple. Our designs are characterised by abstraction, using natural materials such as bronze, marble and wood with minimal adornment. Poised between austerity and sensuality, our statement pieces complement all types of interiors.
We distil ideas into meaningful designs.
Striking a balance between the intuitive and conceptual, our objects and spaces convey their own enigmatic but unmistakable atmosphere.
