About Us

oikos is a Greek owned company which retails and wholesales contemporary furniture, lighting and design items for homes, apartments, offices and public places such as restaurants, cafes, bars, clubs and hotels.

Since 1980 located in Kolonaki the heart of Athens, oikos, with its two showrooms, has remained as the most progressive and sophisticated furniture and object store.


Inspired by Jean Baudrillard’s seminal 1986 book The System of Objects, Greek architect and writer Andreas Angelidakis takes a look at the various collections Dakis Ioannou has put together over the years and aims to reload them and see them from a new perspective at the DESTE Foundation in Athens. Angelidakis attempts to reconfigure the Foundation as an exhibition devide informed by the spirit of the collections it holds. In the System of Objects, no artwork is put merely on display; they either have their own private spaces or are part of a vibrant dialogue that ivolves both space and visitor. Major contemporary artworks and Cypriot antiquities, objects of radical design from the late 60s and early 70s, models for brand new buildings and marginal paraphernalia are treated as finds of a manic Google search on the collector himself.
