From Alexander Xanthakis:

Economical situation push young designers like me to think humbly in order to succeed. There is no money to spend in expensive furniture today, at least in Greece where I live. In order to sell my design, the object should be clear, strong and affordable: Minimal because it has to be.

The contradiction nowadays is the association of minimal design to luxury. A minimal object cannot be expensive; it is a need for the furniture market.

99.99 Euros per chair is the price that I cannot exceed. This concrete limit constrained my process and pushed me to give an optimized product with a realistic project.

My methodology is to think in a minimalistic way from the raw material, during the production labor, until the way of selling the final product. Each constituting details should satisfy both structural, aesthetic and economic function.

SEAT :

– Steel sheet brazed to the frame – Removable magnetic vinyl – Optional lined cretan leather “vachetta”

This chair is suitable for outdoor use & does not stack.

Taíde House by @ruivieiraoliveira – “The proposal should dialog with its surroundings in a friendly way and even if we would assume something new, the concept was not to disrupt completely with past… We felt that we could create something dynamic without hurting the surrounding environment. From this moment forward, the look for stimuli was inevitable. Looking around, to a sometimes marked terrain, we understand that the surroundings work as an amphitheater, in which the gaze of the neighbors, inhabitants of those unique shaped, inclined roof houses, is very proximate. Over there, streets are narrow, backyards are almost public and every word is listened. The scale of the house was a concern.” #architecture #house #minimal #villa #geometric
