Works

The basic magic of natural objects and materials is one of the most ancient intuitive senses that people experience since the pre-historic age. Gifts of nature were fully used to elevate the look and feel of the day-to-day reality. Accessories, decorations, and unique treasures were supposed to protect, encourage luck, bring love, comfort, and joy. We combined the sacral images of African josses and the most modern lighting technologies.

Supersymmetry is a smart, sophisticated lighting fixture that allows the user to toggle between work and rest with a simple move and magnetic click. It is designed to transform from a vertical source of soft diffused light to a horizontal source of concentrated functional light for work, creation, and close communication. The viability of a home-centered life approach, as supersymmetry in and of itself, needs to be tested experimentally in a post-pandemic world. The mission is to develop lighting solutions that can guide people through it, as well as finely detailed appliances that can help with zoning and adaptability of living spaces to accommodate various scenarios.

Collection of transformer lamps that allow the purpose and zoning of any space to be altered with a few simple configurations. Its metal arc profile is inspired by the idea that the circle is the primary symbol of light, as well as the classical technique of alternating arcs in applied architectural and decorative art.  Magnetic holders at the ends of the metal arcs allow the lamps to be combined in different configurations to form a circle of scattered light or vertically-filled glow as needed. As a result, the lamps can achieve a general distributed lighting effect or a focused directional light source through various permutations. The magnetic holders also provide users with a tactile interactive experience. 

This modular, multifunctional couch is inspired by Art Deco forms and the seabed. The sofa is wrapped by a 'sink', of which design and functionality can be changed. The color scheme and couch form are developed into two versions. The first version is set in a white and grey retro style with an emphasis on brass elements. The second version is set in dark grey and black, modern style with bright red accessories. This object allows the user to change its design and functionality and hence, change the mood of the room along with it.

The idea of a lamp was developed from the principle of a national Russian toy - Matryoshka, in which the general shape is repeated on a different scale of the object. In the silhouette of the lamp, the image of a traditional table lamp was taken as the basis, but it was stylized as more rounded Matryoshka shapes.
Due to this idea, firstly, we got a product which everyone can change according to his or her desire and interact with it in a game form. And secondly, in the folded form, the lamp becomes more compact and requires less packaging and therefore, less logistic costs.

This is an integrated lamp in the wall, all parts of which are located inside the wall, thanks to which the illusion of a voluminous gliding table lamp is created. The object resembles an apparition, we see it, but it is in a different plane.
The inspiration for creating this lamp was a desire to design an object that will erect emotions and associations in people with ancient cultures. The inspiration for choosing technology was the ancient city of Petra, which was carved into a rock, while the inspiration for the appearance of the lamp was Orthodox Byzantine churches, which are concise and restrained from the outside, and inside are decorated with gold mosaics and decor.

The lamp was developed under the influence of the research that was about the concept of proprioception. This muscular sense, thanks to which a person feels his own body in space, is informally called the “sixth sense”. Thanks to this approach to design, we have developed a floor lamp that a person can use with their eyes closed, without being distracted from their work or leisure. With the help of a base, the lamp can be placed as close as possible to the workplace or even between any furniture. 

The lamp was created under the influence of the work of the legendary woman architect Zaha Hadid.
Smooth and dynamic lines inspired the image of a fantastic space object, which reminds us of films about other galactic worlds. The symmetrical shape and the light circle in the center focuses the viewer attention to it. It helps to imagine what the world of the future could look like and what technological progress will lead us to.

Synthesis is the process of connecting previously disparate entities into a whole. This principle was used to develop a lamp. It combines the motifs of modern art, a man-centric approach and light reflection technologies. The inspiration of modern art was the work of the sculptor Santiago Villanueva. The man-centric design was expressed through the ability to transform the lamp to the needs of each person. And light technologies made it possible to calculate the strength of the luminous flux and the effect of reflections on galvanized glass. This will create a gradient resembling a candle flame.
Synthesis (meaning ancient Greek "connection) — a process of connection or association of things or concepts earlier being segmental in whole. Synthesis is a way to collect whole of functional parts. This philosophical concept became a basis for design of the lamp.

Collection of Rebel is called in honor of modern British-Indian sculptor - Anish Kapoor. I developed the unique form of the lamp reminding vortex quantum model of our Universe. Such form from cosmology is closest to spirit of a modern sculpture. This is a lamp interesting in terms of an engineering thought. It allows to arrange a light source in the form of the LEAD plates closed by the matt lens.

The very name ells us not only about the properties of the luminaire. But it also takes us back to the Renaissance. The fact is that the word is an artistic term used in optics and in the fine arts. It means the optical effect of reflected light. Renaissance artists, abandoning the traditions of the Middle Ages, which paid little attention to perspective and three dimensions of images, began to study the properties of light. Going back to the traditions of antiquity. 
All of this was the basis for the inspiration behind creating the luminaires. Metal plafonds with two light sources, covered by frosted glass diffusers, seem to hide from the viewer in decorative circles cut in half. With this design, we can see how one light illuminates a circle from different sides. These elements consist of a fabric that is both translucent, reflective and has an interesting texture. This creates an interesting effect, like the sun rising over the surface of a serene water surface.

The collection is about the ancient cultures of Mesoamerica. They were famous for their jewelry art, often made of gold. This metal was not precious or currency for them, unlike the Europeans of the time. In some Mesoamerican cultures jewelry had ritual and religious meaning. 

The very name of the collection tells us a lot about the mysteries this luminaire hides. The luminaire's concise design is not only dictated by contemporary trends, but above all by its design features. The shape of the luminaire hides almost endless adjustment possibilities, so that the lighting can be set individually for the user. 

What makes the luminaire stand out is the technical paradox.
The luminaire base, which for centuries was intended to have a light source on top of it, has itself become a light source.
