The New Raw - Glyph

Design studio The New Raw, founded by architects Panos Sakkas and Foteini Setaki, has worked with local school pupils to design Glyph – a vibrant new collection of sustainable play furniture for Eleusis, the European Capital of Culture 2023.

The name of the collection, which stems from the Greek word γλυφή, meaning carving, refers to the ornamental engraving of messages or symbols on ancient temples. The project is the result of an eight-week “lab” in the Greek city, to which over 700 children from the region aged between 5 and 14 were invited to donate their plastic waste and produce drawings that were later scanned, digitally processed and engraved on the new furniture around the city.
