Designers & Producers
Shibui is the Japanese word that refers to an aesthetic of simple, unobtrusive beauty. It is also the name of the Swiss-based company specializing in simple household goods and accessories, founded by the award-winning Greek designers Constantinos Hoursoglou and Athanasios Babalis.
The two designers understand Shibui as a design in harmony with nature, where every form has a function and every detail has a meaning. The creations of Shibui are produced by specialized craftsmen and workshops in Europe. Shibui is inspired by the desire to make elegant, useful objects accessible to all.
For all Shibui products, only minimal resources and natural materials are used - longevity and timelessness are characterizing the products.
Integrity, sustainability and beautiful simplicity: these are the values of Shibui.
