Piotr Wiśniewski
Piotr is an architect and designer who collects 20th century furniture and is particularly fond of vintage postmodern Italian design, which he combines with custom made pieces of his own creation. Wiśniewski’s projects combine contemporary art, architectural elements, bespoke and vintage furniture. This combination creates a refined yet unpretentious setting suitable for contemporary lifestyle.

Wiśniewski co-founded his own design company weStudio, together with Barbara Elwardt in Berlin, Germany in 2021. weStudio specialises in the hospitality industry and designs in hotels (including the cōmodo collection), restaurants and luxury residential. The most crucial part for him is the context of every project – this ensures that each one is individual and unique.

Dimitris Karampataki is co-founder and director of Greek architecture and design firm K-Studio. He began his career whilst completing his studies at the Bartlett School of Architecture. These early works brought him back to Athens and over the following years, in partnership with his brother Konstantinos, the studio took shape and began to build a reputation for a totally context-based approach to design.
K-Studio is now an award-winning practice with projects across the globe, an international staff of architects, designers and administrators and a halo of collaborators and consultants. As Creative Director Dimitris believes that growth, especially in the current European climate, relies on flexibility, open mindedness and above all, team spirit.
