A little bit about me....

Functional design and aesthetics : as an industrial designer, the challenge lies in front of me in order to create a balance between the two.

My childhood in Crete was filled with artistic and constructive ideas. I moved to Belgium at a young age. Later on I pursued a rather artistic career. I started studying architecture in Highschool. By the time I was 21 I graduated as a designer at Howest and started specializing in furniture design.

Now I can systematically explore the possibilities within the field of industrial design. Functionality, beauty , durability, all important aspects in my designs.

This bistro table solves this problem with it's four elegant folds forming a hook at each end. You can easily hang your bag/purse or newspaper to one of the four corners of the table, without losing visual contact with your stuff. The folds are designed so that they form a structural and aesthetic unity with the table.
