On.entropy
United Kingdom
On— entropy is a marble atelier established in 2009 in Athens and London. Marble, an archetypal Greek material, takes on an unconventional role in on— entropy's designs; they encapsulate the contradiction of being heavy and compact and at the same time vulnerable, fragile and translucent. Its diverse character and resilience is the core of the atelier’s founding mission: to experiment with marble and its entropy; meaning its transformation potential and inherent limitations. Created by sisters Niki and Zoe Moskofoglou, on— entropy is the fruit of a lifelong family affair with marble in Greece. Niki is an architect with an academic training in design. Her work demonstrates an architectural detailing and instinct of how space can surpass mere function while Zoe is an environmental engineer focusing on the marriage of Cultural and Natural Heritage. Niki and Zoe have been brought up in an environment where marble was correlated with the family’s work background. It dominates their childhood memories, with quarry visits considered a favourite pastime. They both developed gradually a strong conscious bond with the material, respecting its nature and challenging its potential. Niki and Zoe founded their design studio to reflect both art and craft. Pushing the boundaries of marble, they aim at settling it peacefully into itself. The atelier reflects deeply the idea of entropy, with roots in the Greek ‘entropia’, which refers to ‘turning toward’ and transformation. So while at first marble appears as a rigid and inelastic material, on— entropy explores how it can be transformed from one state to the other and how its form, finish and light can transform its materiality from a raw, natural marble block into a useful and elegant piece.
'Craft safeguards and progresses heritage, and it tells stories of real people and their places'.
