Designer - Alexis Georgacopoulos

Born in Athens, Greece in 1976. He graduated from the swiss art school ECAL in 1999 and was appointed Head of its industrial design Department in 2000. 

His studio is based in Lausanne, Switzerland from where he collaborates with international clients and institutions. In his own work he epitomizes design that is both functional and amusing, with humour as the counterweight to technology. 'An object must induce sympathy,' he asserts. His works have been exhibited in major cities, design fairs or museums such as the Milan Furniture Fair, the London Design Museum and the Shanghai MOCA and have been published in various exhibition catalogues and books.
'Pleasure, play and classicism' : this could be Alexis Georgacopoulos' s credo that combines conceptual lightness with simple functions and straight to the point effectiveness!
