shibui is a range of hand-crafted homeware and accessories created by Constantinos Hoursoglou and Athanasios Babalis, both award-winning Greek designers.
Shibui is a Japanese word which refers to a particular aesthetic of simple, subtle, and unobtrusive beauty.
All our products embody the principles of shibui: effortlessly effective craftsmanship using the greatest restraint and the minimum materials. Never complicated or contrived, every detail serves a purpose. Functional and flexible, our products are designed to complement any environment. Timeless pieces that outlast passing trends.
shibui is sustainable in every sense: Natural forms and environmental considerations determine the choice of materials.
Our products are designed in Switzerland and handmade by specialist artisans in Europe. Inspired by a desire to make quality design accessible and affordable for everyone, we design, manufacture and market all our products. This means honest pricing, consistent quality, minimum waste, and maximum flexibility when it comes to one-off commissions and special requests.
We can tailor any design to your requirements.
Integrity, quality, and simplicity. These are the values of shibui.
