• A project for Aluminco Design Competition, Greece . Aithrio was among the three finalists and won the thrird prize .
  • The BRIEF : Design a Pergola system for a modern residence. The purpose of the product is the smooth transition between the residence and the exterior space .
  • Our Inspiration Guidelines .
  • Aithrio Pergola is made of aluminum with a glass layer on top of the patterned surface to privent rain coming through in the early Autumn days . Also , it is painted with electrostatic paint so that it resembles the texture of wood.
  • The patterned surface is inspired by the Greek hand made knitted cloth "Σεμέν"  [ shuh-m-e-n] which brings a Greek character to the product.
  • Also a "Green" element of Aithrio is it's O-LED lights on the sides . O-LED is a new LED technology for more economic and smooth lighting light sources. Also the solar panels help Aithrio to be energy autonomus.
  • The top surface helps  the sunlight to come through and simultaneously creates a smooth shadow effect.
