Directors Wilhelm Finger and Melita Skamnaki lead every project with a core team of experienced designers and curators, together with a wide and developing network of experts, artists and designers, and fabricators specially sourced for each assignment.
The experience of Double Decker’s founders is unique. With a background in communications, fashion, design and art history, together with our international multidisciplinary team, we are able to predict the ebbs and flows of popular culture, and the changing needs of the modern traveller.
We curate. We design. We produce.
