PRACTICE

We compose, construct and curate interior worlds

Two Is Company bridges the disciplines of architecture, interior decoration and product design. From furniture to lighting, objects to interiors, all our work has a distinct aesthetic that emerges from this integrated approach. Our creative alchemy creates a whole greater than the sum of its parts, where form and function are aligned.

We are inspired by context and craftsmanship

Based in Greece, we collaborate with international property developers and home owners, retailers and hoteliers, architects and decorators, as well as cultural foundations, museums, and galleries. Although our work is global in scope, we are passionately detail-driven, overseeing every stage of design, production and installation. We specialise in bespoke solutions and every piece is hand-made to order.

We build relationships, not just spaces and objects

Each project is a new relationship. We engage in a creative dialogue with every client to develop a shared vision for their space. We work with hand-picked suppliers whom we trust to deliver the highest quality materials. We have forged partnerships with the finest craftsmen in Greece, ensuring that everything we make has the same flawless finish. We are inspired by the people who live with our products and inhabit our spaces.

Our Athens showroom doubles as a creative laboratory where new ideas, prototypes, and collaborations take shape. We welcome studio visits by appointment.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

We create modern classics

Our design philosophy draws a line between the classical and contemporary. Mining our Greek heritage, we refine archaic symbols and structures to develop striking new geometries. Pairing shapes and patterns to their essence, we create archetypal forms whose dynamism derives from their innate harmony. The ancient Greeks called it “the golden ratio” – the perfect balance between proportions and volumes. Grounded in history yet with a timeless quality, we make the past feel present.

We believe in the power of understatement

Our studio ethos is profoundly simple. Our designs are characterised by abstraction, using natural materials such as bronze, marble and wood with minimal adornment. Poised between austerity and sensuality, our statement pieces complement all types of interiors. From ancient Greece to art deco, mid-century modernism to contemporary minimalism, our aesthetic influences are deep and diverse.

We distil ideas into meaningful designs

This clarity of purpose extends to all aspects of our design process. It takes rigorous research, specialist artisans and many subtle iterations to reach solutions that appear deceptively straightforward. Striking a balance between the intuitive and conceptual, our objects and spaces convey their own enigmatic but unmistakable atmosphere.

FOUNDERS

Two Is Company was established by Dianna Karvounis and Vivian Philippa in 2009.

Dianna Karvounis is an industrial designer with a Bachelor of Arts from Sarah
Lawrence College and a Master of Industrial Design from Pratt Institute in New York. She previously ran her own design studio producing furniture and lighting for high profile clients such as Nike, Grecotel Hotels and Astir Palace.

From a chance encounter through a mutual friend, our creative partnership grew organically, kindling a new philosophy of space that is always evolving.
