Eleni received her academic education at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki in Greece and École Supérieure d’Architecture de La Villette in Paris. She holds a Master’s degree in Architecture from Columbia University in New York where she received the Fullbright scholarship. Eleni’s vision is that of seamlessly flowing through interdisciplinary practices by focusing on strong concepts that blur
the boundaries between the artistic and the pragmatic, between form and abstraction, merging her strong background in architecture and art. She has been awarded the Stavros Niarchos Foundation Artist Fellowship by ARTWORKS (2021).
Eleni is the co-founder and Creative Director of Objects of Common Interest, a studio operating within the realm of art and design, as well as architecture, blending projects in scale from objects and installations to interactive immersive environments and interior spaces. Eleni along with her partner Leonidas Trampoukis are also founding partners of the sibling studio LOT Office for Architecture. Objects of Common Interest was formed with a focus on creating still life installations and experiential environments and objects, demonstrating a fixation with materiality, concept and tangible spatial experiences. OoCI aims to create projects that balance between the long-lasting and the ephemeral, projects in time and objects whose creative approach stems from an abstract realm enriched with layers of conceptual readings: moments of unfamiliar simplicity, sculptural and material self-expression, structural articulation. The work roots from an amalgamation of thinking and making between two diverse poles, Greece and New York, switching between the formal and the intuitive, embracing the handmade and the tactile, the experimental and the poetic.
