K1 is part of the ongoing project kafeneon, an attempt to re-interpret iconic
designs of the greek culture. Based on the inherited sense of familiarity,
nostalgia& irony of the objects, the aim is to question the significance of those traditional design typologies and the emotional connections they create
with the user.
