It's all, oh so souvenir to me! CORNER SHOP
@ Concierge Athens Cafe
8 Agias Theklas str in Psirri / T. +30.213.0369266
Concierge Athens (rooms & apartments), lying in the heart of the old city of Athens has turned its lobby in an all-day meeting space. Serving coffees, fresh juices and spirits from all around Greece, blending into the concept of It’s all, oh so souvenir to me!
The result is the set up of a CORNER SHOP which displays and sells unique design items, allmade in Greece. Imaginative and unexpected ideas define the souvenir as a highly aesthetic object, overturning the folklore stereotypes and introducing a New Greek identity.
Opening Hours: Tue: 12.30 - 20.30 / Wed & Thu: 10.30 - 20.30 / Fri & Sat: 10.30 - 00.30 / Sun: 10.30 - 10.30 / Mon: CLOSED
The designers’ platform It’s all, oh so souvenir to me!, brings under the same umbrella the interpretations of over 60 Greek designers to the question: “What would Greece be, if it were a souvenir”.
The result portrays a line of objects with different utilitarian value, materials, ideas and concepts, all with a focus on Greece.
Different views, backgrounds, experiences and perspectives come together in an attempt to redefine the design and meaning of the traditional Greek souvenir!
The designers use their own design “language”, their own means of expression and Greek materials, in order to create the Greek souvenir. They are inspired by Greece and by the different social, political and cultural issues that they consider to define the new, modern Greek identity and image.
