CTRLZAK is a hybrid studio that integrates different disciplines and cultures. The founders, Katia Meneghini and Thanos Zakopoulos, are both artists and designers in their own right. The Italian-Greek duo’s creations are inspired by their travels and experiences around the world and by their own rich cultural backgrounds.
The studio creates artworks, objects and spaces but– above all– situations where people can come together in order to make what really matters: human relations. CTRLZAK’s projects and extensive research into tradition and cultural context create a new hybrid future by learning from the past. Each project is a story waiting to be told, with a multitude of forms and endings. Each one experiments with diverse methods of narration where irony and symbolism go beyond aesthetics and functionality, in order to activate mechanisms of reflection.
Thanos Zakopoulos is a creator of varied forms and contexts. An artist, a designer and a photographer amongst other things, he likes to bring together different disciplines and situations creating projects which balance between contemporary art & design. He has presented and participated in many exhibitions around the world and has given lectures in various occasions in Europe and China. When not in Milan -where he is based- his research trips take him to strange places sometimes as far as to infinity and beyond.

Katia Meneghini has always been passionate about calligraphy and art history, while her contemporary projects develop through relational processes and mechanisms which place emphasis on human interaction. Her approach to art is based on social research with the use of performances, installations and documentation. At the same time she is keen in investigating the possibility of a multi-disciplinary design related to different aspects of social life using the methodologies gained through her social art experiences.
