A photographic exhibition on Middle Eastern Culture "An afternoon in Salalah”.

Attempting to bring a taste of Middle Eastern Asia in our market, we chose to enrich our Athens Shop in Sina Street with atmospheric elements borrowed from the Sultanate of Oman.
The furnishings are positioned in front of enormous photographic reproductions of oases, terrains of Omani regions, images of sand dunes and skies composing an outstanding Middle Eastern setting. The Athens Shop continues to mix the traditional of ‘pure modern’ with the verve of contemporary, a mix perfectly epitomized in Varangis.
