Areen Design studio was founded in 1985 and since grown to employ over 300 people nowadays. Since it is one of the most renowned interior design firms in London, the distinguished CovetED magazine wanted to know more about their incredible design inspirations so they realized an exclusive interview to the studio’s head of Design, Theo Nicolaou.
“New experiences stimulate new emotions as well as reigniting ones from the past. I come from a family of chefs where culinary creativity and entertainment have been at the heart of our way of life. It may sound bizarre, but the similarities between design and cooking are very close. My obsession with detail is on a par with my love for Japanese food which presents itself in the finest way.”
Theo Nicolaou from Areen Design studio combines his passion for interior design ambiances and traveling to create unique design projects. “To experience changing environments and different cultures is incredibly rewarding on a personal as well as professional level. Alongside the traveling, I also love the opportunity to work with so many talented visionaries, be they talented designers on the supplier side, or project managers on the client-side. What makes him passionate about his work, us the fact that every day has new and different challenges, “never the same and never boring”.
The experience of self-awareness to find in every day a new challenge is something real in the studios’ design world. As head designer of Areen Design Studio, Theo draws inspiration from not only from his traveling experiences, as we said before, but also from progressive advancements in technology.
“We can manipulate new materials to break boundaries and set new goals. All this said I do like the spaces I design to have a sense of place with the subtlest of cultural reference…. unless the project is in Las Vegas.”

Theo Nicolaou. from Areen Design considers himself as a particular, passionate and inquisitive person, which defines his signature style. “One aspect of design which I am obsessed with is an attention to detail. Perhaps a signature, if it exists, might be the most beautiful detailing and the most satisfied client.” Each and every client is different and Theo thinks that they have a responsibility to inspire and expand their thinking, to open their eyes to what is possible.
Following one of his role models in the interior design industry (Phillippe Starck), Theo believes that the secret to a successful and balanced design project is in the good use of natural daylight. “For me, it’s not always about what’s in a room but what’s outside it. The relationship between our interiors and what is happening on the outside is crucial”, said the head designer of Areen Design studio.
When questioned about their favorite materials to work with, the head interior designer of Areen Design studio revealed that he is a glass and metal aficionado. “From enclosing or fitting out space, glass and metal offer creative interpretation and styling, ranging from the industrial to the romantic. Anything is possible. We often design custom light fittings for private installations, which can include hand-blown glass elements”, explained Theo Nicolaou.
