In the simplicity of Interior Design Laboratorium’s projects, one can always sense a quiet luxury emanating from the flawless functional design and the excellent quality of materials. The Athens-based studio was founded by Stamos Hondrodimos in 2009 and has since been giving a voice to modern Greek interiors rooted in sun-soaked isles.
