Typeroom®. The space
Recently relocated in the center of Athens, Typeroom (an offspring of Parachute®) is set to become a creative hub, transferring the work of Parachute® and the online typography platform Typeroom, to brick and mortar. The driving force behind the choice of location derives from a genuine need to engage in a dialogue with other designers, creatives and cultural figures, but furthermore invite anyone in who is curious to see what it is we really do. We believe in being extrovert about our work and there is no better place to do this, than in an area were heritage and culture meets a contemporary and vivid way of life. Through a well thought out schedule covering a broad spectrum of the art and design field, with an array of events, lectures and multidisciplinary projects, our aim is to build a physical platform were one can gain knowledge, support, inspire, converse and become even more creative
