Design Notebook by Sias SA

έσω [eso] #02


Following last year’s successful organization, SIAS is proud to be supporting again έσω [eso] conference for Interior Design, taking place in Athens at the Onassis Cultural Centre on February the 15th.


Harpa – Reykjavic, Concert Hall and Conference Centre, Henning Larsen Architects, 2011. 

For the second year, έσω [eso] focuses on interior space articulation. Six architectural practices will discuss their working process, from inception to implementation, in designing interior configurations of a space. The architects will discuss how their practice has gone further from merely designing the exterior shell of a building, into creating spaces of rich experience and interaction, into taking up the design of everything involved with living into a building. Along them a creative practice will discuss the importance of incorporating graphic design into architecture, in terms of adding a layer of navigation within XL buildings as well as creating a dialogue between architectural and graphic elements.

Featuring keynote speaker Kostas Poulopoulos, Senior Design Architect at Henning Larsen Architects, Invited Architectural Practices are Divercity Architects, A&M, Kokkinou-Kourkoulas, TDC Architects, Deca Architects, Henning Larsen Architects along with G, Design Studio.
