CTRLZAK portrait by Athanasios Alexo square copy


CTRLZAK is a hybrid studio that integrates diverse disciplines and forms of expressions.
Founded by artists and designers Katia Meneghini and Thanos Zakopoulos, the studio’s
creations are based on extensive research into humanity’s cultural history and the natural
world that surrounds us in order to create a meaningful future.
Due to its’ interdisciplinary approach CTRLZAK specialises in art direction while creating
artworks, objects and spaces but above all points of reflection where form follows meaning.
Through the use of semiotic tools within the creative process the studio conceives projects
and orchestrates situations that surpass common aesthetic values operating on a deeper
cognitive level, aspiring to make people consider their actions and the planet that we live in.
CTRLZAK has been extensively covered by the international printed and digital press while
their creations have been exhibited in galleries, museums and institutions all over the globe
like the Venice Art Biennale, the Triennale in Milan, the CID-Grand Hornu, the London Design
Biennial and the MAXXI to name a few.
