Tell us a little about your background in design (education, experience, etc)
I opened my own first Interior Design Studio in July 1990 as a leading-edge Company, with its branches in Moscow and Dubai. Since 1994, the company has been working with projects all over the World. In 2006, we opened the main headquarter in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. The biggest projects were done in United Arab Emirates, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Russia and Europe.
Nowadays Dubai Design Group has strong reputation in Middle East Market as Leading Designers & Architects of Royal Palaces, Private Villas, Penthouses, Government and Commercial Projects. As part of my 30 years experience, I’m a proud holder of six International Diplomas in Design field and Equivalence of my Talent: Master of Fine Arts (MFA) by International Interior Design Association in USA.
How would you describe your personal design style?
As a professional designer I don’t stick on particular style, because I’m always realising the dream of my clients. Personally, I love styles without border: from eco-minimalism to overwhelming luxury. My 3 decades experience of daily practice allows me to balance and deliver any style my clients wish.
Where does your design inspiration come from?
Creation of design is like a birth of music. You don’t know where it comes from, just a Muse touching you and shows everything that inspires you! Then an idea comes!
In what direction do you feel that design is moving towards in a general sense?
Design has now transformed to a stylish contemporary look, where functionality dominates on aesthetic.
