YO2 Design is a pioneering design brand, creating timeless cast iron planters, wallpapers and rugs. YO2 provides innovative and contemporary design solutions for their international clientele.
YO2’s design philosophy is to enrich their clients’ lives through the spaces in which they live, by creating contemporary designs that both respect culture and bring with it a twist of classical influence. Each collection has been designed with the client at the forefront of their minds, and each product can be custom-made.
Evident throughout their designs is a clear crossover between technical, intellectual and creative skills that result in harmonious, eye-catching products that are both unique and an ode to the past.
Whilst a common theme of modern Baroque can be found within many of their designs, an overall marriage of classical influence and contemporary conceptualisation are present.
YO2’s remarkable range of digitally printed, luxury wallpapers are available in various styles, shapes and colour variations. Ranging from geometric and floral prints to avant-garde and Baroque styles, these wallpapers are available in both subtle shades or busy creations.
RUGS & BROADLOOMS
YO2 also offers an array of elegant, luxurious rugs and broadlooms. Their rug designs combine advanced colour technologies and high-quality materials to create durable, dazzling patterns. These products are available in light and dark colours, geometric and floral prints, and in a variety of neo-classical styles.
These statement designs are made using cast iron and corrosion resistant finishes in order to withstand the test of time. Transforming each and every space in which they inhabit, these planters range from innovative classical sculptures to geometric animals.
YO2 was created in 2011 by a team of highly-skilled design enthusiasts, including architects, interior designers and graphic designers, under the creative direction of Pericles Liatsos. This multidisciplinary team has designed various iconic collections with the goal to enrich their clients’ spaces with beautiful and innovative designs.
YO2 works closely with architects, real estate companies, constructors and designers, and their products are distributed through a network of high-end design shops across the globe.
Pericles Liatsos, the creative director, founded the company in 2011 after obtaining his BA in Industrial Design at the Academia Delle Belle Arte in Roma and his Master of Arts from Rome’s Quassar in Interior Architecture.
‘Interior Design is the harmonious fusion of elements that provide functionality, aesthetic appeal and comfort – elevating our quality of life. It is a dynamic profession that defines purity in form, function, balance, and color harmony. Ethics, respect for quality and ecological awareness are essential components of interior planning and design’. – Pericles Liatsos.
