How and why did you get into the design Industry? Where did you study?
In 1985 I obtained the degree of Bachelor of Arts in three Dimensional Design/Interior Design at Brighton University in England. After that , from 1986 until1990 I was fortunate to be employed by Jon Bannenberg where I gained experience in the design of Mega Yachts.
How would you describe your design style? How varied are your designs?
I like to experiment with Classical, Post modern and Modern design styles. It is a challenge to be versatile and try to create a unique design for each project.
What do you love about being a designer?
Creativity, Artistic expression and application of intricate geometrical forms are the characteristics that inspire me as a designer.
Where do you draw your inspiration from?
I chose to live and work very near Acropolis. I always was inspired by the Greek ancient Architecture which I believe had reached an aesthetic and geometrical perfection.
What are some of your most popular designs/projects? Tell us a bit about some of your designs/projects and what you love about them. What’s your favourite and why?
I suppose that DELMA/MOONLIGHT and RM ELEGANT are regarded to be some of my favourites projects, although I think that all my projects and concept designs intrigue me.
Is there anything exciting that you are working on at the moment that you can tell us about?
Recently I am involved in the design of tow Motor Yachts. There are small projects as far as the length is concerned , but it is a challenge to try and fit all the client’s requirements into small spaces where each millimeter counts. Their Exterior styling is more intricate than the design of larger yachts.
What colours, textures and furniture pieces do you love the most?
All styles of custom made furniture are appealing to me. I love silks, cotton and natural fibres. My favorite colors are the pastel earthy colors.
What is your philosophy on design and life?
I personally believe that design is the necessity of expressing the need for creation in every daily life.
What are your design dreams/goals?
My design dreams and goals are to be able to express myself as long as I can.
Describe yourself in three words.
If I was to describe myself in three words I would say that I am creative ,artistic and workaholic.
After the interview, Lally Poulias sent me pictures about the new yacht he is designing. I will share it with you.
