Table-stand Ero of the owner of MoscowCompany LLLooch Leonid Lozbenko changes the idea of the usual texture of objects. Worktop natural marble Greek Skyros so thin (4 mm), which resembles a shellac, a broken crowning intricately stainless steel leg. Beauty here not only saves the world, but also serves as a distraction for the USB port, built into the leg of the table to recharge any gadgets. A graduate of the London Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, Leonid was unable to realize his ideas in third-party companies, he had to open his own. The LLLooch Union of Like-minded People successfully "leads" its subjects from idea to consumer, combining in style, intellect and convenience. The creator of the company LLLooch Leonid Lozbenko: - To achieve a good result in mass production, you need to set absolutely clear goals and follow the plan. Business planning, working with people occupy 80 percent of my time. The remaining hours go to the creativity and the immediate creation of objects ... We do not at all try to do things specifically in the Russian folk style. On our courier machine, even painted an out-of-the-box matryoshka. I believe that Russia has something to show besides kokoshnikov. And the national style in objects manifests itself. Many of our things, for example, are made from Russian birch. LLLooch.ru
3. The luminaire
Suspension lamp Light Bean turned outMoscow designer Katya Kopytina thanks to the idea of making the lamp an equal part of the design. She wanted something simple, as much as possible cleaned of the details, but with a character. Indeed, the bean-lamp seems to roll out of the oak chuck, willingly demonstrating itself to the world and not giving out any presence inside the ventilation system, which does not allow the cartridge to heat up. Having received a Master RSP degree in Milan Istituto Europeo di Design (IED) and having completed an internship in well-known European companies, Katya professes the idea as the basis of design. According to her confession, she infinitely modifies everything in her head that surrounds her: trash on the streets, benches, stops, washing machines or cans - everything must be comprehensible and eventually become objects of design, form a culture. Light Bean quickly found recognition among design experts and the public. And despite his laconicism, well established in the metropolitan interiors. Katia Kopytina, designer: - I constantly think about how it would be possible to improve everything around: from garbage to whole areas. Here it is not so much about industrial design, how much in general about the logic of the device of life, life, and there too thoughts. The problem is that the overall level of design grows with the crowd. Therefore, everything is moving slowly. But now there is a rapidly growing number of people who understand the value of this topic. Design in the broadest sense of the word - it's not just pretty lamps and unusual furniture. Design is the design, comprehension. Katerinakopytina.com
Vladimir Ivanov from Kemerovo believes that the mainThe designer's task is to surprise, offer a person something different from what he sees in the stores. And he succeeds completely. Milan, Florence and Moscow continue to marvel and praise his work, such as, for example, Dream Two chair with an unexpected centering of the lamp, made for the cafe "Dreamer", and this chair as if calling to tear yourself away from the seat and climb up the stairs. At the exhibition "Subject" Vladimir brought a passepartout - an ordinary at first glance, a wooden panel that hides an invisible magnet. With the help of other magnets it is possible to scatter on the surface of the matt any selphi, holiday photo reports or valuable instructions to relatives. Elegant simplicity without fuss, but with a twist, brings it together with IKEA, and Vladimir thinks that it would be cool to become the first Russian to sign a contract with her.
5. Rocking chair
Crowned, despite youth, internationalRecognition and award-winning designer of St. Petersburg Yaroslav Misonzhnikov, the generator of the project Izba, enriched it with two subjects. One of them is a fun wooden wooden rocking chair, "grown up" from a musical rattle.
6. The candlestick
The second subject from Yaroslav in the project -Candlestick, where the position of the candle can be adjusted by means of a scale and a holder. A glorious mix of Slavophilism and Eastern graphic art came out. Only recently Yaroslav took part in the London exhibition "Born in the USSR", adding to the solid "printed" list a collective publication in the magazine Wallpaper. However, his main dream remains the idea of making a collection of porcelain for the St. Petersburg Imperial Factory. On the first education Jaroslav ceramist.

7. Mermaid & Rusal
Another character of the project Izba, so belovedMilanese audience - print for fabric "Rusalka & Rusal" of Moscow designer for fabrics of Sveta Gerasimova. He refers us to Pushkin's Lukomoryu, Mitki, a mixture of the Russian epic and naive simple-hearted art.
Wooden stand for a laptop of one ofThe founders of the St. Petersburg studio Plan-S23 (furniture design, interior decoration) Alexei Galkin caresses the look of smoothness and completeness of forms, and it is composed of a fairly large number of parts, carved with a computer program. Coupled together, they are a patented product and give an excellent effect, providing a comfortable height and distance from the eyes to the window on the Internet.
Furniture company Field & Rage creates inMoscow furniture and interior items are exclusively handmade. Such are the mirrors "Delta" in a triangular frame made of oak. A slightly tinted mirror surface gives a nostalgic smoky-scattered picture, and a bonus is a light tan at any time of the year. Triangles are easily compiled into any collages, extending the possibilities of a mirror decor to infinity.
Ceramic ware "Cheburashka" from the graduateIstituto Europeo di Design in Madrid Lera Moiseeva, her co-author Luke Niketto and the manufacturer (Suzdal workshop Dymov ceramics) has already visited April Milan Design Week 2014. So now they know about the old Russian way of making black-glazed ceramics - she It is molded on a potter's wheel, polished to a shine by a stone and twice burned in an oven. The cookware not only lets in air and perfectly preserves the product, but it is also very friendly - the objects interact in a combinatorial manner, easily integrating one into the other. By the way, the very name - Cheburashka - in Russia meant "fishing float". The very principle of placing innovative items onBackground of the interior of the noble nest justifies the main idea of the exhibition. Design - the relationship between a person and an object. When they are personal, sincere and meaningful, such subjects are organic both in feast and in the world. Ekaterina Tulupova, curator and author of the idea of the exhibition "Subject", co-owner of the design studio "Arch. Subject ": - The key style in the interior design of the last quarter of the century is eclecticism and fusion, a mixture of old and new. The concept of the exhibition - a modern design in historical interiors - was born out of the understanding that the real house is developing gradually, bearing in itself the connection of generations and times. Modern objects in the memorial house museum, on the one hand, look unexpectedly, and on the other hand - harmoniously combined with antique furniture. Arch-predmet.com Olesya Sitnikova, co-author of the idea, curator of the exhibition "Subject", co-owner of the design studio "Arch. Subject ": - The time of crisis is very productive for design. Milan became the world design legislator after the Second World War. At such moments it is important to create a new one, as it is called, from scratch, starting from the conditions of a scant start, re-use the old ones or use new economical materials, in short, optimize production as much as possible. The present design is born from a lack, instead of from surplus. This exhibition, which we hope will become traditional, was born partly as a reaction to stress from studying in Milan. We looked around and decided - it's time to unite and say: Russian designers are. Yes! They exist! Arch-predmet.com
