Voukenas Petrides is a design studio based in New York and Athens. Furniture designer Andreas Voukenas and architect Steven Petrides combine their talents to produce poetic furniture designs for the home and office. Greek Andreas Voukenas holds a bachelors degree in interior architecture and product design from the Athens University of Applied Science. American Steven Petrides holds a master of architecture from Columbia University. Their diverse portfolio includes stools, side tables, chairs, and installations. Each furniture piece is hand fabricated and finished by Andreas in their Athens workshop. Their timeless designs reflect Stevens interest in structure, materiality, light, and space, making each design a work of architecture. Their design objects are functional and inspirational in their ability to test the laws of gravity, balance, cantilever, and even the infinite. Andreas and Steven live and work in New York and Athens where they operate their design workshop.
