Kiki Goti The New York design community is in awe of her amorphous, yet slightly geometric objects and playful neofuturistic style. The architect, designer, and digital fabricator is originally from Greece. Luxe What makes her tick?
How did you get into design? During my studies, I was intrigued by microstructures, tectonic systems that were a little out of the ordinary, fabrication techniques, robotics, and 3D printing biomaterials. My work today still involves experimenting with new materials and hybridizing fabrication methods, but I do it in a more intuitive manner.
Tell us about the Neo Vanity collection you launched at this year’s Milan Design Week. Exploring the act of getting ready with a mirror, vanity and sconces that are simultaneously hard and soft, I wanted to show a part of the Greek aesthetic that isn’t stereotypical. I designed a collection of hand-painted patterns reminiscent of Balkan textiles. The designs are colorful and bold but also sensuous.
