From our library
On level A there is a library which offers books of various content - classic literature, poetry collections, design manuals, albums, books on Thessaly, the theatre and wine. Moreover, there is a daily update on a variety of local and national daily and weekly newspapers and magazines.
This month’s recommendation: Dimitris Pikionis, Acropolis (Art)Works, Indictos Publications.
The monumental architecture work “non building” by Dimitris Pikionis, who was internationally praised, is depicted in this album. It contains an introduction by Agnes Pikionis, a note by Yianni Kalantides, as well as texts, a rapportuer and a letter by the author/artist. It is enriched with lush photographic material as well as architectural drawings from his study on the layout around the Acropolis and Filopappou hill. You will be enchanted by the detail in the designs for the layout of the road towards the Acropolis, the terrace, the Saint Dimitrios the Loumbardiaris Church and its cemetery.
On Level A area there is an exhibition of small furniture and house objects of the Switcherland based company, ''shibui''. Its name comes from Japanese language and refers to the simplicity of aesthetics and the discrete beauty. The artists are awarded Greek designers and every item is handmade.
Please refer to the catalogue and the company’s website, www.shibui.ch
