Elena Cheburashkina: interview with a young Russian interior designer

Is it possible to raise three children, designfurniture, train future designers, and in between times receive prizes from the President? Today we are talking about the real life of designer Elena Cheburashkina From 12 to 15 October, within the framework of the international exhibition iSaloni WorldWide Moscow, a competition for young designers SaloneSatellite WorldWide Moscow - 2016 was held. future. Elena was born on June 26, 1986, graduated from the M. SG Stroganova, Department of Artistic Furniture Design, since 2008 has been teaching there. And the department is headed by her husband, Kirill Cheburashkin, and together they take on very different and interesting projects. One of these is the management of the reconstruction of typical Moscow kindergartens and the creation in them, taking into account all the requirements for kindergartens. We ourselves have three children, so the topic of kindergartens is close and understandable to us. And since our main direction is precisely furniture, we not only developed design projects, but also created individual pieces of children's furniture, which we have someone to test. Kindergartens, which are already being worked onThere are more than 300 Cheburashkins and their department in Moscow. And for Elena it is very important not only to complete the task, but also to show that even outdated premises with inconvenient layouts are easier and cheaper to reconstruct than to demolish - if you approach it wisely. In December, we are finishing work on the next group and will definitely invite officials to see the result. We want to convince them that our work is not only beneficial and beautiful - it is also economically beneficial. And in general, we are very pleased to be a part of such an important social project! The main plus for the city as the main customeralso in the fact that the Furniture Department is not a commercial enterprise, but an educational and research institution. Therefore, the designers were more focused not on profit, but on a good result and on gaining experience. In preparation for work, they spent days in kindergartens, delving into the process of working with children and identifying problems - those. It is not surprising that in 2015 Elena became a laureate of the President of the Russian Federation Prize for young cultural workers for her contribution to the development of domestic design and art education. Still, my main occupation is to teach students to design furniture. And all the main plans and dreams are connected with the development of our own department, although we are growing very quickly. The main problem now is that about 30% of students leave the university as dropouts, and we want 100% to be graduated as professionals. At the pulpit where Elena and her husband work,indeed, there is an amazing team of teachers and alumni to be proud of, and alumni have the opportunity to participate in exhibitions, including international ones. Out of 44 participants of SaloneSatellite WorldWide Moscow this year, 17 people are Elena's wards, and this is a new record for the Furniture Department. By the way, when we talked with Elena, we were not yet known, but she immediately determined the future winner. In the 21st century, a trend has developed in design that a thing should not only be comfortable and beautiful - it should evoke vivid emotions and inspire. Of all the contestants this year, I would single out Tanya Repina and her pine furniture - this is an example of what is expected from a modern designer.
