Helen Kontouris Design, available through Schiavello
November 28th, 2007
Helen Kontouris is barely past her third decade of life, but this young Melbourne designer has achieved a mountain in her short career.
Having established her company Helen Kontouris Design in 2002, she has since collaborated with a number of national and international clients, manufacturers, architects and retailers, including: WMF (Germany), Coffex (Australia), Schiavello (Australia), Kundalini (Italy), Manufacturas Celda (Spain) and Sunweave (HongKong) to name a few.
A finalist in Corporate Culture’s Design Journey Competition in 2005, and a finalist in the Launch Pad Design Competition in both 2004 and 2006, this industrial designer is fast becoming a name to remember.
Considering her broad product range – from lighting, to chairs, sofas, candelabras, and outdoor furniture – Kontouris is a designer for all quarters. Each of her pieces are unique as extensive research underpins the development of each individual design.
Select pieces from Helen Kontouris Design are available exclusively through Schiavello in Australia, including the popular ‘LaLa Stool’.
