Name: Who Is Watching You

Designer: ALLT

Location: Bratislava, Slovakia

ALLT is a design studio run by Peter Simoník and Elena Bolceková, based in Bratislava, Slovakia whose focus is on producing functional objects each with a story that have ultimately been valued by art galleries and consumers since their founding in 2011.
