Angelos Angelopoulos was born in Greece. He studied stage and costume design and he has been working as an interior designer since 1989. In 1990 he designed his first hotel ANDROMEDA ATHENS, which was among the few boutique hotels in Europe at that time. Since 1999 he has designed the interiors of more than 40 hotels, most of which were boutique hotels. Among his projects one can find residences, apartments, restaurants, clubs, show rooms etc. He lives and works in Athens and he has done various projects all over Greece, as well as in Cyprus, in Istanbul, in New York and lately in Florida. Presentations and references to his work can also be found at the Japanese magazine CASA BRUTUS, at the French MARIE CLAIRE, at ELLE DECO, at TRAVELLER CONDE NAST, at Portuguese CASA CLAUDIA magazine, the Italian edition of AD, the Hong Kong HOME JOURNAL, the Russian 100% DESIGN, as well as in luxury hotel guides. The July of 2005 Hospitality Awards, following the rules established by the Chairman of the Advisory board and its members, have distinguished Mykonos Theoxenia hotel as finalist in the category Best Innovative concept in hotel lodging. The above award was given in recognition of the most original concept/incorporating technical innovation, quality of service, design and decoration.

He is included every year, for the last ten years, in Andrew Martin’s «Interior Design Review». He has created his own pattern in design. He creates trends, never follows them. His work is based on the experimentation, the inversion and the balance of opposing views. The main feature, in this brief presentation and the extensive one to follow, is the contrast, negative – positive. This comes as a result of his personal approach in the way he creates and works. The centre of his work is the personalized design focusing in human being space. Creates space around people, not putting people in a space. This is why you will see projects with so many differences between them, and also absence of mannerism. His work is divided in neomaximalism and neominimalism. These two styles do not happen in different periods of time, they happen simultaneously and the one “feeds” the other. The base is always the person, organization or group of people whom he deals with, and each one really becomes an endless source of inspiration. This inspiration came by using also the most interesting parts of the <client’s> personality, and specifications. His work is a kind of therapy. Curing through aesthetic strictly personalized kind of therapy. Experimentation – inversion – proximity – diversity The bigger part of his work is psychology. I strongly believe in the power his work is the image “One image – a thousand words”.
