Today’s chat is a very special one, connecting with us all the way from London! We can’t wait for you to join today’s chat with Yorgo Lykouria! Yorgo Lykouria is the Creative Director at Rainlight. Yorgo leads Rainlight’s London design studio. In his early years as an architect working in Airports and high-rises, Yorgo became the youngest design director at Helmut Jahn’s office in Chicago. In 2002, he established the award-winning London studio, Lykouria, which he ran for 12 years as a multidisciplinary practice. Yorgo’s broad spectrum of practice includes architecture, design, and filmmaking. He is recognized for his work in automotive interiors for Ferrari, and various works for Vitra, Akaba, Alape, and Dornbracht. His recent design partnerships with Rainlight include collaborations with Allsteel, Arcadia, Tecno, Scavolini, Okamura, and Zumtobel. He poured into the chat his journey starting in engineering to architecture and now industrial design, and the challenges he faced as an emerging designer, and tangible tips for us navigating similar things! From sharing his thoughts on Pinterest and creativity, trusting your instincts, navigating uncertainty, sustainability, and design thinking, these are just a few things we covered!
