The Story


Arts from the past are proven to deserve a place in the bright future. Old-world, magnetizing designs are now finding themselves at the top of the world, carrying with them two valuable virtues: talent and vision.


Could we be moving forward, to a place where time stands still? A contemporary immersion to the world of Cycladic tradition and cultural heritage, revived by hand. Naxian marbles, storytelling yarns and airy fabrics take us back — to the future.


Wandering around a circle full of life, character and light – the Cyclades are a group of island gems that form a rough circle around the sacred island of Delos. Diverse cultures, mixed colors, contrasting landscapes – one identity.


It’s been years since a “boat” full of famous artists, writers and musicians sailed in and made Hydra the most inspiring destination for this international bohemian, artistic community. Today, key figures in both global art and design scenes are still on it.


Design that pays tribute to natural materials, simple forms, graceful lines, vintage styles and a distinctive identity. Taking the road back to a simpler, richer kind of life.


Going places to meet a craft aficionado that keeps the loom weaving tradition alive and forward-looking architects that revive history through modern design – a thriving thread from Crete to London and back.


Natural tones, earthy flavors, raw materials and calming scents – on a mission to explore nature’s gifts transformed into modern narratives to live, drink and experience.


Looking for the perfect place to peace out? Take a stroll into some of the most contemporary and charming places to stay, dine and catch some rays under the Greek sun.


Delving deep into the world of contemporary design with K-Studio. From a modern, Mykonian villa to the transformation of an old winery into a cutting-edge design hotel, we highlight two of the Greek architecture firm’s best works.


Boosting the country’s fashion reputation abroad, Greek luxury labels and the creative minds behind them, have now managed to attract a global audience of loyal fans and be stocked in hundreds of retailers around the world. What’s their story?


Using simple, natural forms to create abstract objects that go beyond their immediate function, Greek design duo Objects of Common Interest have been in the spotlight of global contemporary design scene since 2015.
