Machine-A’s Stavros Karelis Teams With Onassis Cultural Centre on Uniform Project

BUILDING BRIDGES: Stavros Karelis, the co-owner and buying director of hot London boutique Machine-A, has teamed with the Onassis Cultural Centre in Athens to create uniforms for its front of house staff members.
Launched in 2010, the center’s mission is to promote new Greek and international figures in science, innovation and the arts. Karelis was commissioned by the deputy general manager Afroditi Panagiotakou to help source an emerging designer for the project and the buying director spoke to various designers, who submitted proposals.
“Supporting young creatives chimes with our vision and our mission while bringing minds together is part of our job,” said Panagiotakou. “As citizens of the world we believe that collaborations happen between people. At the same time, we know that openness is more a state of mind than a geographical fact. Whether the world seems too small or too big depends on our willingness to understand and communicate.”
The Onassis Cultural Centre is part of the Onassis Foundation, an international institution that engages with culture, the arts and education worldwide. It has supported 7,000 young Onassis scholars and fellows over the last 40 years, acting as a springboard for young people to fulfill their dreams.
The designer chosen was Lada Komarova
