Greece Is For Lovers

Greece Is For Lovers

One of the exhibitors in the upcoming 100% Design show in London is Athens-based design trio Greece Is For Lovers. Its irreverent products are inspired by its home country's cultural clichés and monuments, from opa-shouting Greek dancing to broken plates to the beach to Zeus' lightning bolt and Hermes and Aphrodite. This cedar-scented break-up candle offers "instant redemption," they instruct. "Fill in with the appropriate x-lover's name and burn the blues away." (You have 45 hours to get over your ex while it burns.) More sassy objects for the home after the jump...

This Zeus-inspired lightning bolt letter opener does the trick for the right- or left-handed...

These ceramic dishes are based on "the aftermath of a wild night out" and "the exuberating Greek practice of smashing plates during the climax of a bouzouki party"...

Sunglasses-wearing Hermes and Aphrodite candles ("Hermaphrodite") can be burned like ancient myths...

The Opa shower curtain shows you how to Greek dance...

Athens Sucks, says Greece Is For Lovers, in an inverted display of New York-inspired civic pride, "and you know it."
