TOPOS workshop was born from a 20 years’ experience, fabricating for architects and designers special design projects, realizing from a single object to a complete interior design. We have collaborated in significant amount of projects like restaurants, hotels, shops and offices.
As an outcome of this continuous collaboration with designers, we generated a collection of furniture, lights and accessories. The primary materials we are fascinated to work with are wood, iron and cement.Also, many of our materials are recyclable.
Our main goal is to design and produce furniture that can withstand time, not only physically but also as a design.
Our challenge is always to find ways to minimize the production cost so that the final price for the end user is kept low. We always welcome young designers that have the same love and passion with us about design, to collaborate. If you have an idea…we can build it!

F+M FOS is a team of designers and draughtsmen from all over the world. Their main goal is to design lighting and furniture.
Founders and lead designers of F+M FOS are Fragiskos Bitros and Mania Soumoulidou. Materials used include leaf of silver, 14-carat gold leaf, metallic netting, thorns, precious or semi precious stones and an assortment of woods.
Through lighting and furniture, the F+M FOS concept aims at creating a theatrical sensation with a dynamic individual touch. To achieve this we went back in time.. and transformed industrial era into manual craft.

…The light in a house is as if our idea is born. it is the challenge of the senses and a game of passion. It seems like a new experience between the touchable and the untouchable .It is the most important thing to make a house vivid.
My designing effort emphasizes the aesthetic harmony of modern house spaces. The light is life and our home is the space that is filling us up with life. Throughout our work, we aspire to interconnect the lights with the places that host life.
Every creator has his own sources of inspirations .What matters in my designing point of view is that the creations should reflect a form of communications with the users .If I may say every creation is special, developing a unique relationship with his owner and contributing to his personal aesthetic harmony. It is my ultimate goal and simultaneously my pleasure to succeed a bonding of the owner with the particular object that he chooses, not simply to decorate his house, but also to live and dream with it. The pleasure that somebody experiences when he finds in us whatever he always desired, represents our everyday source of designs.
The light and its interaction with the shades and the colors are the dominant elements of the house. It is the colorings of the imagination that feel you up with emotions. It is the revelations of sensations for the objects that are alive , with people who enjoy living with them…
