About Aliki Rovithi : In 2007, Aliki Rovithi and Foant Asour founded their creative studio DEDE DextrousDesign which still to this day hosts their never ending love for debate and experimentation. Although they carry an artistic background as well, as industrial designers they have to operate within the strictly commercial and profit- driven requirements of mass production. Their personal goal for the future and their biggest anxiety so far, is not to stop loving what they do, because of this constrained environment. They would like to keep on giving an open and enthusiastic welcome to new things and remain able to create design projects that deliver messages in effective and memorable ways.
STATEMENT OF ART:
We love to explore different materials, either traditional or technologically advanced, implement new and unique manufacturing techniques and express our thoughts in alternative ways across a wide range of creative media. Should we had to point out the common denominator of our inspiration, that would be the underlying humor within each one of our design concepts and our attempt to design engaging experiences that trigger the user’s positive emotional response.
We also strongly believe that there shouldn’t be a segregation between “design” and “environmentally conscious design”. Each design practice and manufacturing process should respond to the social, environmental, and economic challenges that our planet is facing.
Consuming as little natural resources and raw materials as possible, according to the "dematerialization" approach that our times require, has been an ongoing concern of ours since the beginning of our involvement in design.
