STATEMENT OF ART:
Nikolaos Karintzaidis believes that good design springs from knowledge and exploration. He also supports the philosophy that leads to a final design product appealing on a number of levels, ranging from strict functionality to the intellectual adventure of connecting form to purpose in both the designer’s mind and that of the user or client.
