We believe in beauty, conscious awareness and in connecting people.
With more than 30 years of experience between them as an architect, actor and designer, Helene, Simone and Kathy teach courses and collaborate with individuals, groups, museums and businesses. We create vibrant activities in the visual arts, theatre, music, dance, writing, gardening and cooking, helping others to express themselves creatively in all fields.
This has resulted in founding Two by Two Creators, a collaboration of international artists and designers. We work together to facilitate and cultivate creativity, as a social enterprise for artistic and creative growth
Helene and Simone Bendix
Born in Denmark and raised in Italy, Helene and Simone Bendix are twins whose lives have become increasingly interwoven into a collaboration of creative wonder. Helene trained and worked as an architect in Bordeaux. A move to Italy in 2004 led to both design and architectural projects for private clients around the world. She has illustrated books, worked on styling and idea creation for Marie Claire Idées, Elle Danmark, Elle Decor Italia and Elle Decoration Deutschland and La Repubblica, collaborated on weekly Creative Ateliers for children and creative workshops for the local community. Simone’s acting career began at 17, leading to television and theatre work in the UK, Denmark and France where she now lives. Alongside her acting career, Simone has worked on interior design projects, creating brands using her skills as both designer and innovator.
Helene and Simone’s creative worlds formally coalesced with the creation of Edition Poshette, a luxury illustrated small leather goods brand with its own world of imagination and style. Working together, they have designed interiors for award-winning hotels, private housing and educational environments, as well as creating exhibitions and museum workshops; working with both adults and children. Their book ‘Paper Poetry’ has been published in six languages around the world.
