A collaborative design effort between Samuel Wheeler and Dino
Siampos, AUX ARMES use their aesthetic sensibilities and
experiences as designers, musicians and artists to produce
simple, beautifully refined stage equipment and lifestyle objects
for the discerning musician.
Wheeler and Siampos first met while designing window displays
for Barneys New York, and after bonding over a shared love of
music, formed and toured as part of the band SOFT from 2003.
When they returned to design in 2007, they began Aux Armes
Etc. and created conceptual retail experiences for luxury brands
including Hermès, Valentino, Diane von Furstenberg, and Martin
Margiela, and ARMES RACE is an extension of this practice.
