“The AKollection is utilizing processes and materials that are centuries old, traditional and craft based. I looked across the UK to find artisanal glass factories that were up for being challenged. I wanted to bring some digital know-how into the process and push the boundaries of what can be done.” says studio founder Afroditi Krassa.

“The Piano tiles are hand made in Tangiers/Morocco by local craftsmen that would normally make the very intricate, complex patterns found across century old Moroccan residences. The beautiful inconsistency of the lines softens this geometric and strict pattern”

Known for its work for bar and restaurant brands, AfroditiKrassa has designed Super Brands London’s first dedicated bar using the studio’s debut collection; “35 Pentagon lighting pendants which hang rhythmically from the ceiling, 30 square metres of Piano tiles line the oversized table/catwalk feature and 5 square metres of Pleat mirror wall panels adorn the back wall of the bar.”
