who we are, what we think, how we do it

Our philosophy is that design is much more than the creation of products and environments. It is expressed through objects, but its real task is to address the evolving characteristics of human life. We live in a world that changes with an unprecedented rhythm, for that we believe designers should foresee change and remain avant-garde while designing products that can adjust to the end users changing needs. Our main aim is to complete projects with increased attention to aesthetics, technology, social and ecological issues. The ability to choose the best suited materials, technologies and manufacturing methods according to product requirements and client specifications is a characteristic of our design process. 

The studio was established in Athens in September 2002 by Constantinos Hoursoglou and has been active since in various fields of design. Since September 2007 the studio has moved to Geneva. The quality of our work is validated by a series of international design awards like a red-dot in 2011, local and international press, as well as the participation to the St. Etienne Design Biennale and Salone Satellite 03,04,06. Combining an education in industrial design at the Royal College of Art with professional experience in Athens, London, New York and Geneva with Karim Rashid for clients like Sony, Prada, Issey Miyake, Tommy Hilfiger and Guzzini among others, Constantinos is leading the Geneva studio that provide comprehensive services to clients on projects ranging from graphic and exhibition design to product design & development.
