VADE is an Athens-based creative studio, designing projects that cross the boundaries between Art and Well-being. Drawing on the visual idioms of desire and mental response, VADE studio interprets consciousness and forges visions. Inspired by the transcendentalist notion of simple living as well as the functionalist principle Form Follows Function, the studio’s work is an ever-evolving articulation of an elemental aesthetic, where every project finds its own raison d’être.
