Tube Line

Athens, Greece, 2015

Through the use of a single material, we are freed formally: the common metal tube can be manipulated endlessly in shape and finish and can be enriched by actions such as folding, twisting and stretching. Each object is formed by the repetition, rotation and joining of its tubular elements.

Our furniture and objects are small-scale architectural structures with the ability to become instant classics. Each piece is handcrafted using traditional artisanal techniques on handpicked natural materials, and is thus unique or available in limited editions. Captivated by the countless variations of shapes and combinations of materials, we are in a constant mode of creation and experimentation. Intrigued by the ability of antique furniture to become vessels of history by interpreting specific, often outdated uses, we seek to create objects that mirror a modern lifestyle, but are simultaneously timeless due to their sculptural, enigmatic geometry.
