At first, we called ourselves Two Is Company, a reflection of our close collaboration
and complementary skills.
In 2018, the moment had come to rebrand our growing company. Our increasingly international portfolio and expansion strategy called for a new name that better expressed our brand values and global outlook. A name that distilled our Greek heritage but spoke to the rich scope and scale of our work.
ANAKTAE derives from the ancient Greek ‘anaktor’ meaning palace. In antiquity, the anaktor was more than a royal residence: it was the heart of civic and cultural life, where the most skillful artists and artisans lived and worked alongside the ruling elite. Like these creative powerhouses, our studio embraces artisans and connoisseurs dedicated to quality craftsmanship, sublime aesthetics and timeless style. ANAKTAE is a feminine variation of a Grecian classic, which reflects our brand’s exclusivity,
individuality, and strong female leadership.
