Alexis Georgacopoulos & Praxis'
Postino Desk Accessories
The folds of a paper envelope are the basis for these anodized aluminum desk essentials by Alexis Georgacopoulos, giving them a conceptual lightness despite their weighty material. "Postino" is postman in Italian, and these smart additions to a desk or counter deliver. Design that is straight to the point, yet imbued with a bit of humor drives Athens-born Alexis. He finished his studies at the Swiss art school ECAL in 1999 and was appointed head of the industrial design department there the following year. He works with clients and institutions worldwide, too, from his Lausanne studio, always with the same credo: "pleasure, play and classicism." Each piece is beautifully boxed making them a great gift one item at a time or as a set.
