Koukoutsi – graphique store belongs to the category of creative brands that design products with the aim of promoting Athens’ contemporary identity. The designer behind the brand, Nikos Mainaris, depicts architectural landmarks in a minimalist way, commenting humorously on current economic and political issues, while portraying Greek culture with a modern writing style.
For the first time, the rich design work produced throughout the past 15 years is explored within the framework of the exhibition at TAF gallery. It is based on the triptych architectural landmarks –memorabilia – current concerns. The exhibition features prints, posters as well as T-shirts, handbags, jewellery and ceramic mugs.
The exhibition is taking place in the context of TAF / the art foundation’s umbrella project titled ‘Athens is for Lovers’, which sparks a different dialogue between new creators and the city of Athens. The exhibitions and projects presented this year under this theme, feature the work of artists and designers who have been inspired by multifaceted aspects of the contemporary city, drawing on people’s everyday stories, historical transformations as well as the architectural landscape.
