Objects of Common Interest

Brooklyn, New York

,

& Athens, Greece

Eleni Petaloti and Leonidas Trampoukis are Objects of Common Interest, a Studio operating within the realm of art and design and architecture, blending projects in scale from objects and installations to interactive immersive environments and interior spaces. The work roots from an amalgamation of thinking and making between two diverse poles, Greece and New York, switching between the formal and the intuitive, embracing the handmade and the tactile, the experimental and the poetic.


Eleni and Leonidas received their academic education at Aristotle University in Greece and Ecole Supérieure d’Architecture de La Villette in Paris. They each hold a masters degree in architecture from Columbia University in New York. They are also founding partners of the sibling studio LOT office for architecture. 

Objects of Common Interest was formed with the focus in creating still life installations and experiential environments and objects, demonstrating a fixation with materiality, concept and tangible spatial experiences. OoCI aims to create projects that balance between the long lasting and the ephemeral projects in time and objects whose creative approach stems from an abstract realm enriched with layers of conceptual readings: moments of unfamiliar simplicity, sculptural and material self-expression, structural articulation.

Eleni and Leonidas 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, merging their strong backgrounds in architecture and art.
