POSTFOLK is back surprising us with their brand new project on aprons.
DISCOFOLK aprons is a folklore approach through the glossy world of disco. Combines two different worlds bringing a postmodern connotations in folk art…Well…you need to wear a piece of art to cook some!
DISCOFOLK is taking part in Fresh Hotel exhibition on Greek and international designers’ projects.
FRESH HOTEL-”RE-FRESH The New Mind of Design and Art” - Until 15th May.

Have you ever thought of how folklore pieces of art would look in our digital age? POSTFOLK have, and are now sharing unique pieces of art linking the past with the future.
POSTFOLK is the work of Maria-Olga Vlachou and Kostis Vassiliadis, two Greek graphic designers who have become intrigued by the design potential of the motifs in Greek folk art.
POSTFOLK are winking at your grandma, who I am sure, has never imagined her needlework being revived as a digital handicraft!
Last Saturday they opened their exhibition at el.marneri galerie. We were there and were really inspired by their prints. Very interesting concept overall. I would imagine its application in home deco but even more in hotel decoration. Imagine a design hotel in Greece, featuring POSTFOLK prints on their walls. Absolutely amazing for a traveler!
So visit el.marneri galerie and be inspired!
