Description

“HEMPIRIC” is a contemporary answer to the need for efficient interior lighting. The familiar industrial aesthetic hides an innovative solution: the use of hempcrete, a biocomposite which was itself born in the context of an increasingly pressing need for change in the way we approach resources. Made of the inner woody core of hemp – a plant with exceptional technical qualities – mixed with a lime-based binder, the hempcrete is a robust and versatile material. A sustainable solution with a negative carbon footprint, adapted to the present times. “HEMPIRIC” is an eco-friendly visual manifesto expressed in two versions, a suspended lamp with metallic details and textile hemp fibers, and a desk lamp inspired by the old oil lamp, with metal and glass elements.

The intelligent use of natural resources has become the main concern in industrial design over the past years, and for a good reason. The project offers an innovative, aesthetic, and practical interior lighting solution, while also respecting the environment in the context of rising concern towards the exploit of our limited planet’s resources. Hempcrete is an environmentally sustainable material increasingly used in constructions and interior design for its robust quality and extremely low impact on the environment.

Curated by

The body of work in this collection consists of pieces by Greek designers of the mainland and the diaspora, or international professionals who live and work in Greece. As a common theme we tackle the elusive notion of “Greekness” and how this transpires through the work of seemingly diverse and distinct individuals. In our attempt to define “Greekness”, we aim to raise questions about how this plays out in the work presented. How do Greek designers view their identity? Is it through their effort to decipher their heavy heritage? Is form important in order to achieve a predisposed classic elegance, or is a philosophical disposition towards shape more poignant? Could it be simply a resourcefulness and DIY ethic to make up for the absence of design infrastructure? How do Greek designers based abroad deal with their background? Could it be that they simply ignore it in order to finally free themselves? Is there a certain amount of innovation necessary in order to channel it into the new environment? Finally, how do foreign designers see their work influenced by their Greek surroundings? Is it the reference through the use of noble materials such as marble or the abundance of natural light that makes their work unquestionably Greek? Or could it be something else they were seeking when they decided to move here, something abstract like humour or drama? Could their arrival finally mean a departure from Greek heritage’s self-reference? The pieces that we present might seem ill-matched, but they share an important core element. They are confident in their narrative of a personal story of identity, that is either at peace or against the Greek archetype. Through this communication, they all describe a culturally mature and vibrant scene that is finally extroverted and coming of age.
