Can I bring up three children, designFurniture, train future designers, and between the business receive prizes from the President? Today we talk about the real life of designer Elena Cheburashkina. From 12 to 15 October, within the international exhibition iSaloni WorldWide Moscow, a contest for young designers SaloneSatellite WorldWide Moscow - 2016 was held. There Roomble met designer Elena Cheburashkin and discussed with her the contest, personal achievements and plans for the future. Elena was born on June 26, 1986, graduated from MGHPU them. S.G. Stroganova, the department "Artistic design of furniture", since 2008 she has been teaching there. And the head of the department is her husband, Kirill Cheburashkin, and together they undertake 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 children's pre-school institutions. We have three children, so the theme of kindergartens is close to us and understandable. And since our main direction is furniture, we not only developed design projects, but also created separate items of children's furniture, which we have someone to test. Kindergartens, work on which already leadCheburashkins and their department, in Moscow more than 300. And for Elena it is very important not just to accomplish the task, but also to show that even out-of-date premises with an uncomfortable layout are easier and cheaper to reconstruct than to demolish - if you approach it wisely. In December we finish work on the next group and we will definitely invite officials to look at the result. We want to convince them that our work not only benefits and beauty - it is also economically profitable. And in general, we are very pleased to be a part of such an important social project! The main advantage for the city as the main customerAlso in the fact that the "Chair of Furniture" is not a commercial enterprise, but an educational and research institution. Therefore, designers were more attuned not to profit, but to a good result and to gain experience. In preparation for the work, they spent days in kindergartens, delving into the process of working with children and identifying problems - those. Not surprisingly, in 2015 Elena became a laureate of the President of the Russian Federation prize for young cultural figures for their contribution to the development of national design and artistic education. Still, my main occupation is to teach students to design furniture. And all the main plans and dreams are related to the development of the native chair, although we are growing very fast. The main problem now is that about 30% of students leave the university with half-educated people, and we want 100% to be produced by professionals. At the department, where Elena and her husband work,There is indeed an amazing team of teachers, and graduates who can be proud of, and graduates have the opportunity to participate in exhibitions, including international ones. Of the 44 participants in the SaloneSatellite WorldWide Moscow this year, 17 people are Elena's wards, and this is for the "Furniture Department" a new record. By the way, when we were talking with Elena, they were not yet known, but she determined the future winner right away. In the 21st century, the design developed a trend that the thing should not just be comfortable and beautiful - it should evoke vivid emotions and inspire. Of all the contestants this year, I would sing Tanya Repin and her furniture from pine needles - this is an example of what is expected of a modern designer.
