The Benaki Museum opened its doors in 1931 in Athens.

ARTiSTORY will be creating designs inspired by the museum’s extensive collections, which include over 120,000 works of art, 200,000 books, one million photographs and thousands of rare documents covering Greek and Roman Archaeology, Byzantine and Post-Byzantine Art, Early Modern Greek Material Culture, Modern and Contemporary Greek Photography, architecture and design, music and performing arts but also Islamic, Chinese, Pre-Columbian American, African and Korean Art, as well as an extensive collection of toys and games from around the world. 

“I am excited about the Benaki Museum joining ARTiSTORY’s growing
