Specialty shopping

On the corner of Kallisperi and Parthenonos streets (30), you’ll find Athena Design Workshop one of the neighbourhood’s most artsy and down to earth décor and accessories stores. Australian-raised Krina Vronti is a charismatic set designer and illustrator who works in technical, set and graphic design as well as making handmade, hand-painted or printed Greek or Athens-themed items like scarves, bags, T-shirts, notebooks, 3D shadow-box frames made with a collage and a story within them.

You can often find Krina Vronti busy woodblock printing her appealing graphic designs on T-shirts, cushion covers and paper at this combined studio and shop. The images are often inspired by ancient and classical themes but are given a contemporary twist.
