Athena Gronti (Athens, 1993) is a textile designer fascinated by womanhood and the concept of domesticity. The feminine experience throughout history and how it's interwoven with that of textiles plays a key role in her practice, which is often strongly influenced by her Greek / Balkan background. Her pieces gently nod to traditional and classic, while maintaining their contemporary and conceptual nature. Hosting dinners for women has become an extension of her artistic practice, where she is reclaiming the acts of caregiving, cooking and hosting as empowering.


She is an alumna of Willem de Kooning Academy (2018), and her work has been showcased in exhibitions such as Dutch Design Week and featured in internationally renowned publications, such as Dazed, Cover, Vogue, Numéro, etc. 


She is based in Rotterdam, de Wasserij.
