About Xenofon Hector Grigorelis : Grigorelis Xenofon-Hector was born in Thessaloniki where he continues to work and live, up until now. He completed his studies on interior design and he started experimenting on wood constructions. His first projects were based on design and production of pieces for commercial use as well as unique, one- of- pieces. His main goal was to combine aesthetics and workability in an interesting conjunction. After many years of experience designing, interior decorating and creating both houses and commercial shops, he decides to follow his restless needs and culture his artistic views and ideas in order to produce his own projects. He also taught at the Greek public technical school for a year, graphic design, were he challenged himself in getting close with the upcoming designers. In 2014 he decides to participate in International Design Competitions, were he is awarded with the Bronze Award in A Design Competition and with the Silver Award in 2015-2016 in Italy. The designer’s perspective is that modern personalities should adopt aesthetics, architecture and internal decoration in their everyday life. All new means of high technology such as computers and mobile phones are piece for the pictures we face every moment throughout our day. Elegance should be recognised and not be considered as inaccessible luxury. Since 2012 , he redefined his priorities as a productive designer and set new goals in the area of presenting new forms in designing and producing elegant objects of everyday’s life. The main challenge now is to make our space exquisite and impressive. He seems to be immediately recognized both from the industry as well as from the people that follow him.
STATEMENT OF ART:
Designing is like the touch of the artist on a painting, the engraving of a sculpture on a rough piece of rock, the creation or the improvement of a space combining the correct colours and materials in order to reflect the owner’s feelings, needs and aesthetics.
This is exactly how I feel when I start a new project. A white piece of paper on which we will write our story together, a material without shape on which we will work together to reveal the appropriate image.
My primary target is to achieve the perfect matching of four basic feelings: piece, relaxation with a touch of surprise and enthusiasm for the marriage of the different objects and materials in each specific space.
I consider myself a minimalism fan, which is one of the most important styles of our times and I try to introduce my own personal and artistic point of view in to it. I invite you to follow me to a journey of different styles and rhythms taking the idea of interior designing one step forward.
