Artpeckers: a Creative Studio in Thessaloniki, Greece, Reinterprets Greek Mythology Through Elegant Design
Editor: Anthi Rozi

EN / GR
Text by Artpeckers 

 
TWELVE is the first complete collection of ARTPECKERS creative studio, which is inspired by the Greek mythology. The goal was to create a product series that would promote the nature of each Olympian God. These products may be “born” in Greece, but they travel all over the world; regardless of our origins, we may find a power, habit or trait in common not only with each other but also with these deities. 

A variety of geometrical shapes form Olympians’ symbols abstractly. The “Twelve” series consists of pendants, notebooks and canvas bags, featuring the individual symbols, and is made using only eco-friendly products.

Travel to a divine world by the TWELVE series! Listen to Apollo’s lyre or run next to Artemis’ sacred deer; and if you find yourself in a hurry to sit by Hestia’s fire and feel cozy and warm, just lace up Hermes’ winged sandal!

The Team
The team of ARTPECKERS is comprised of three young engineers, Kimon, Elli and Dimitris, who decided to not leave Greece and to search for opportunities guided by their interests and knowledge.
 
A few months ago, they set up their creative studio in Thessaloniki, where they design and create products, with great love and devotion, inspired mostly by Greek culture. Simple forms and minimalistic approach are featured in their work, while certified materials give shape to their designs.
 

Kimon Gkologkinas was born in Thessaloniki, where he still works as a civil engineer. He graduated from the School of Civil Engineering of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, while during his studies he also engaged in the art of cinema, and directed two short films with his group Pame Krema. He is particularly interested in re-inventing the neglected public space as well as in the techniques of natural building and bioclimatic architecture. His need to implement creativity in everyday life has led him to devise small scale objects.

Elli Gkologkina was born in Thessaloniki and graduated from the School of Architecture of the Technical University of Crete (TUC). Her innate concern of space issues related to children, led her to conduct research approaching play as a design tool for public space (URB.EN. methodology) and later on to participate in a research of the TUC TIE lab, concerning the design of educational environments. She has attended a postgraduate program on Professional Studies in Children's Play at the University of Gloucestershire, while her work has been presented in exhibitions and conferences. In 2015, she participated in the team project, Many Happy re-Turns, a seat for children that offers a variety of usage through play, which was the silver winner at the International Design Awards (IDA).

Dimitris Sergentakis was born in Chania in Crete and graduated from the Dpartment of Medical Laboratories of the Technological Educational Institute of Athens in 2006.  In 2011, he returned to academia in order to fulfill his dream and study Architecture at the School of Architecture of Technical University of Crete. Since then, his main interests are related to interior and furniture design projects. His research is based on the relation between scales that come to shape the interior space. In 2016, he participated, with his project Origami Chaise Longue, in the International Design Award (IDA15), where he was the golden winner in the Home Interior Products category, while also received a honorable mention in the Interior Furniture category. 
 
 

 
 
Αντικείμενο της ομάδας ARTPECKERS είναι ο σχεδιασμός και η κατασκευή προϊόντων με καταγωγή από Ελλάδα και προορισμό όλο τον κόσμο. Η σειρά TWELVE είναι μία από τις πρώτες συλλογές της ομάδας, εμπνευσμένη από την ελληνική μυθολογία και συγκεκριμένα τους θεούς του Ολύμπου. Στόχος ήταν η δημιουργία μιας σειράς προϊόντων που θα αναδεικνύει το σύμβολο καθώς και τα ιδιαίτερα χαρακτηριστικά του κάθε θεού, συνδέοντας το σύγχρονο σχεδιασμό με την ελληνική μυθολογία. Έτσι διάφορα γεωμετρικά σχήματα κατέληξαν να συνθέτουν με αφαιρετικό τρόπο τα σύμβολα αυτά.  Για την κατασκευή τους χρησιμοποιούνται υλικά «ζωντανά» και φιλικά προς το περιβάλλον, όπως το ξύλο. Η σειρά αποτελείται από κρεμαστό κόσμημα, σημειωματάριο και τσάντα.

Μέσα από τα προϊόντα της σειράς μπορεί κανείς να βρεθεί με λίγη φαντασία σε κόσμους θεϊκούς, ακούγοντας τις μελωδίες της λύρας του Απόλλωνα ή τρέχοντας μακριά με το ελάφι της Αρτέμιδος. Αν πάλι βιάζεται πολύ, αρκεί να φορέσει το σανδάλι του Ερμή και να βρεθεί στο χώρο που νιώθει ζεστά και οικεία, κοντά στη φλόγα της Εστίας. Αφήστε, λοιπόν, μια δύναμη, μια συνήθεια, ένα χαρακτηριστικό τους να σας θυμίσει πως όλοι μπορεί και να έχουμε κάτι από αυτούς.
