About the designer


Greece is for Lovers

Greece is for Lovers is the brainchild of Thanos Karampatsos and Christina Kotsilelou, as lovingly conceived at the foot of the Acropolis hill in late 2005. Sharing similar aesthetic influences, the creative minds behind it introduced a brand new sense of  ‘Greekness’ to contemporary product design, by mixing up a concoction of their country’s spiciest ingredients: humour, irony, nonchalance and extravagance. Inspired by the stereotypical notion of what is widely held to be Greek, their designs comment on habitual activities and behavioural patterns  of both the past and the present; they narrate an alternative home country, consisting of part memory, part fantasy and part wish. 

Unwilling to compromise, the GIFL trademark aesthetic sits comfortably in the controversial area between luxe and kitsch - by exploring areas widely considered as an anathema, or plain shameful, they casually retrieve value and inspiration. Greece is for Lovers’ products, whether one-offs or limited editions, are handmade with care by local craftsmen and are considered a synonym for contemporary Greek design.

Curated by

Presenting “PROXIMITY”, a collection created in collaboration with Southern Sweden Design Days showcasing a selection of new work from ten designers and studios. As a whole, the collection contemplates the notion of proximity, interconnection, and belonging. Whether through contemporary references to traditional crafts techniques; the use of locally sourced materials such as wool, lichen, steel, and wood; or playful visualisations of the notion itself, the selected pieces illustrate the importance of closeness, interconnection, and kinship in uncertain times. Featuring pieces by Andrea Santivanez, Andréason & Leibel, Ebba Lindgren, Förstberg Ling, Jóna Berglind Stefánsdóttir, Lab La Bla, Lisa Darland, Louise Hederström, Moa Lönn, and Studio M. Organised by Form/Design Center in Malmö, Sweden, Southern Sweden Design Days is an annual event currently in its second edition, which highlights sustainability, collaboration, development, and innovation in design. This year’s theme, as described by the event organisers, “[reflects] on the notion of being close – the connection between people, cities, countries, species, professions, etc”. The physical exhibition of “PROXIMITY” will take place at Lokstallarna, Södra Bulltoftavägen 51, 212 22 Malmö from 19 - 22 May 2022.
