Aliki Rovithi and Foant Asour, both industrial designers, founded the Athens-based, award winning,

creative studio DEDE DextrousDesign in 2007.

They have participated in numerous design exhibitions in Greece as well as SaloneSatellite 2010 in Milan,

Tendence 2012 of Messe Frankfurt and Biennale Interieur 2014 in Kortrijk, Belgium. Their work has been

featured in prestigious design publications worldwide and has also been presented at the Design Show

of the Canton Fair 2011 in Guangzhou, China, A’ design award exhibition 2012 in Como, Italy and Chennai,

India, Torino Design Week 2013 and INDEX 2014 in Dubai, UAE.

 

After graduating from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki with a degree in mathematics, Aliki received

a BA (Hons) in industrial and product design from the Middlesex University (AKTO - Athens branch).

Foant attended the Arabic high school in Athens and received a higher diploma in industrial and product

design from the Middlesex University (AKTO - Athens branch).

 

Conceptual approach, innovation and humour are the designing tools that help DEDE understand the

world around them and communicate their thoughts and beliefs. Using creative thinking and intuitively

understood humour as starting points for the designing of their projects, DEDE aim at building strong

emotional bonds between the user and the project’s context of use. In other words... “We create

design projects that aside from their conceptual background, provide a context for interaction and

feature functional qualities as well, to facilitate our daily lives in ingenious ways.”
