The story of Artpeckers has started at a small workshop in Thessaloniki by Kimon (civil engineer), Elli and Dimitris (architects) in 2015. From the very beginning, their intention was to design and create unique objects with a certain character; objects that could deliver and tell a story. In a short while their interest was focused on small scale objects and especially on accessories, inspired by Greek culture and mythology. Geometrical forms and patterns are applied on fabrics, wood and silver for bags and jewels. Trying to preserve their main intention, the team gives all its best from the birth of an idea till the final image of the creations, by setting up a concept through Iro’s photographic lens.
The philosophy of the team is to maintain and spread Greek culture and mythology stories all over the world through design. But, not only the identity of inspiration is Greek; all the production begins and ends in Artpeckers -or their collaborators- workshops in Thessaloniki while the team cooperates with suppliers-producers established in Greece.
Their creations may be found at Artpeckers physical store in the center of Thessaloniki, at 30 selected stores in Greece and Cyprus and at art shop points (Macedonian Museum of Contemporary Art, Benaki Museum).
Their eagerness motivates them to keep on creating and experimenting on new materials. Based on new ideas they continuously develop their collections so to spread stories from Greece all over the world!
