This interview takes place in the house of world renowned interior designer John Stefanidis, in the village of Chora on the island of Patmos. The house has a beautiful garden, and is just below the monastery. John Stefanidis was born into a Greek family in Alexandria, Egypt, and was baptised by the Bishop of Babylon. He was raised in Cairo and moved to Oxford at the age of 17.
I ask John: Are you working in Patmos?
Yes, I did a house for Nicholas Negroponte, and another house for an American family that live in Santa Barbara.
