Helen Kontouris

Since its creation Helen Kontouris has collaborated with national and international clients, manufacturers, architects and retailers. Kontouris focuses on product and industrial design, working on interior and exterior related products such as lighting, furniture and home wares.  In 2004 Kontouris’ La La Lamp was discovered by the lighting manufacturer Kundalini and the first contract with an international manufacturer was formed. Following on from this, there have been contracts with Sun Weave (Hong Kong), WMF (Germany), Alessi (Italy), Schiavello (Australia), manufacturers Celda (Spain & Ritzenhoff (Germany) to name but a few. From initial concept to final product, each project consists of extensive research and development. Process drives the generation of form, more so than any predetermined notion established at the outset of the design.  At Helen Kontouris, design presents an opportunity to “discover, learn, evolve, simplify, interpret, innovate and create”. Each product is therefore the result of a vigorous creative process with a design ethos that combines practicality and function with a unique and innovative aesthetic.
