Skeno works with clients from Germany, Austria, Italy, Denmark, and the United States.
The name Skeno is derived from an abbreviation of the German word for scenography - Skenographie. As transmitted by Vitruvius in his 7th book of De architectura, the ancient Greek art of creating painted illusions for backdrops of theater scenes - now called scenography - was invented by Agatharchus, a painter from Samos, Greece, that lived during the 5th century BC. It is assumed that Agatharchus already incorporated first forms of perspective in his paintings in order to deliver a perfect illusion. Agatharchus did so a long time before a geometrically correct construction of perspective was elaborated by Filippo Brunelleschi, a painter from Florence, Italy, during the 14th century.
Skeno too aims to create perfect illusions - only using the tools of today.
