To conclude, these works extend beyond their assigned function, in that they challenge us to wonder about “usefulness” or what is meant by a useful object through their redefining of the term. They also demonstrate in a visceral way, how the creative mind and hand come together free from characterizations and labeling, to make works of art that transcend the expected. There is no evidence of timidity or fear in the way these works have been conceived, drawn and assembled by Nicos Kouroussis. There is no succumbing to arbitrary ornamentation and the integrity of the materials so boldly engaged, never disguised or diluted.  They have therefore in my view; similarities to dynamic works of architecture which like them and through their constructed presence, these works enrich our personal every day environment and experience.
