LOS ANGELES/LONDON, 01 March, 2018 – Design begins with an open mind. This is the principle upon which Susan Grossinger and Yorgo Lykouria founded Rainlight Studio, a new international product design studio. Collaborating with leading manufacturers across the globe, the studio will unveil a slate of new products throughout 2018 at Salone del Mobile in Milan, Clerkenwell Design Week in London, NeoCon in Chicago and Orgatec in Cologne.
Part laboratory, part workshop, part studio, Rainlight Studio embraces aspirational thinking to create products that enhance how people live, work and play.
“The things we create embody thought,” said London-based Creative Director Yorgo Lykouria, who has more than two decades of experience in industrial design and architecture. “It’s about ideas that break the mould, yet appear timeless. Our work today is a message for the future.”
“Great products have compelling stories,” added Partner Susan Grossinger, who is based in Los Angeles and has 34 years of experience in the design profession. “We founded Rainlight Studio to develop and tell these tales. We partner with ambitious manufacturers that also want to create these stories and that seek to lead, not follow, the market.”
Anchoring design innovation with business acumen, Lykouria and Grossinger each contribute distinct yet complementary strengths to the new firm. Rainlight Studio represents their aspiration to bring a fresh perspective into the world, driven by knowledge and experience, courage and passion, as well as belief.
