Eleni Petaloti and Leonidas Trampoukis are a duo operating the studio Objects of Common Interest, working within the realm of art and design and architecture, blending projects in scale from objects and installations to interactive immersive environments and interior spaces. They are also founding partners of the sibling studio LOT office for architecture and are based between New York and Athens. Their work has been exhibited at art and design institutions, galleries, and fairs – including solo shows at the Noguchi Museum, Etage Projects, Carwan Gallery, Architecture Biennale, and the Salone del Mobile in Milan. Their work allows various kinds of collaboration such as the partnership with Kvadrat to produce the object/installation Doric Column – Kinetic Object, the design of the new store of Nili Lotan in Palm Beach, and public installations such as the project Lights On, which was commissioned by Cultural Capital of Italy 2023. Leonidas and Eleni share a common vision in flowing seamlessly through interdisciplinary practices focusing on strong concepts that blur the boundaries between the artistic and the pragmatic, between form and abstraction, the tangible and intangible merging their strong backgrounds in architecture and art. Objects of common interest were formed with the focus on creating still-life installations and experiential environments and objects, demonstrating a fixation with materiality, concept, and tangible spatial experiences. The work roots in an amalgamation of thinking and making between two diverse poles, Greece, and New York. Their projects balance between the long-lasting and the ephemeral in time and the creative approach is enriched with a layer of conceptual readings. Objects of Common Interest were among the judges for Wallpaper* Design Awards for 2023. In the year 2022, they were named ‘Designers of the year’ and won the Wallpaper* Design award 2022. For the last two consecutive years, they are honorees for the AD100 list 2022 of the top designers and architects and they also won the design prize 2021 for experimentation by Designboom Awards. Their work has been widely featured in the press including The Wall Street Journal, T Magazine, Wallpaper*, Elle Decor, Surface Magazine, Architectural Digest, FRAME and PHAIDON publishers.
