IDEABAR STUDIO - CREATIVE ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN

THE STUDIO

IDEABAR is a creative interdisciplinary studio based in Liopetri - Cyprus, and is the result of the combined experience of an Architect + Designer (Aria Anastasiou) with a Business + Talent Manager (George Papettas). The duo, aside from their professional interests, share also a fascination for contemporary aesthetics, young entrepreneurship and Belgian beer.

The studio provides Architecture and Spatial Concepts, Environments Creation (Interior, Still Life and Display styling), Visual Concepts Development, Artwork, Design and Brand Development + Communication. The studio has established valuable collaborations with other industry professionals - graphic designers, interior designers, lighting specialists, photographers, manufacturers, contractors, engineers and designers - to extend our own thinking and form the proper teamwork for each specific project.

 


 

OUR PHILOSOPHY

We are interested in the simple everyday that is contemporary and [multi]functional.
We are constantly seeking for details, aesthetics and sophistication.
We explore and admire the [beautiful] nature of simplicity.
We like to strip everything to its bare essentials.
We promote the joy of living - the aesthetic value in daily life.

The Minimal. The Raw + Rough but yet Subtle and Serene. The details and their elegant imperfections.
The edge in simplicity. The Aesthetic.
