ANAKTAE is a design studio established by industrial designer Dianna Karvounis and architect Vivian Philippa.
Combining archaic harmony with Modernism, the studio embraces diverse scales of creativity: Furniture, Lighting, Objects as well as Architecture and Interior Design, showcasing authentic luxury and timeless elegance.
All their work has a distinct aesthetic that could be defined as neo-archaic. Inspired by ancient symbols and geometries, they create archetypal forms whose dynamism derives from their innate harmony.
Rooted in a deep appreciation of craftsmanship, every piece is hand-made to order from natural materials such as bronze, marble and wood. Striking a balance between austerity and sensuality, these objects convey their own enigmatic but unmistakable atmosphere.
Based in Athens, Greece, their work is in private collections, cultural foundations, museums, and galleries worldwide.
