Today we will tell you about a young designer, whoseThe name will soon know the entire design world. Why? Because Farid Rasulov is megatalistic. He creates interiors, develops furniture and even swings at a collection of clothes. The editor-in-chief Oksana Kashenko made an interview with the designer - At what age did you understand that you want to become an artist? - In quite mature. There was no such thing that from my childhood I was eager and dreamed about the career of a famous artist or answered the question "Whom do you want to become?" Just like that. Only after I graduated from medical university did I understand and realize that the profession of a doctor is not for me, and I just wanted to take and change everything. By this time I went to a friend, Faik Ahmed, in his art studio, where talented young artists were gathered, where a completely different atmosphere was present, everything was completely different: fun, interesting, informative. It was this atmosphere of the art workshop, where I was surrounded by interesting people, absorbed in art and their own worldview, prompted a review of their future. That's how I wanted to change everything and become an artist. - What education do you have? - Medical. I am an ophthalmologist with a red diploma, which I sometimes forget! - What has had the greatest impact on you both onArtist? - First, a very strong desire to create and be in a creative environment. Creativity is always something new, and everything new, in turn, is movement and development. As a person who does not know how to stand in one place, I was striving for precisely this kind of activity. The profession of the doctor dictated its own. So I slipped away. Secondly, friends who were not afraid of experiments and did interesting work. I studied with them, consulted with them and so moved forward. Great influence also has exhibitions in which the artist participates, it is always a new communication, the experience of other people, a completely different vision of the world and, accordingly, another art. - How did you start industrial design? - By chance. A few years ago, when I was just starting the artist's career, I joined my fellow artists, who at that time were working on the design of apartments. Since then, I have acquired some skills related to furniture and accessories, I've learned to work in 3D and with the program of all Autocad designers. Over time, the artist's profession began to bring in some income, and I left design. A few years later, at the 55th Venice Biennale, where I represented Azerbaijan with a carpet room, I again had an interest in design. - Tell us about the exposition for the VenetianThe Biennale. - The work consisted of a room, all the elements and accessories of which were completely covered with carpet ornaments. The pavilion of Azerbaijan was in an accessible place, which contributed to a large flow of people and caused the same great interest. I wrote a lot of articles about my work, talked and talked a lot, learned about it after a while, when I told people. In general, everything was successful. - Tell us about your brand of furniture. - First of all, I would like to note that the creation of CHELEBI Furniture and Décor would not have been possible without the support of my friend, the brilliant artist Aida Makhmudova. Stylistics, direction, we coined together. It was the joint investment of energy and forces that led to the fact that we were able to create such a brand. Further work was conducted by a professional team consisting of general manager Simon Ahmed, creative director Orhan Huseynov and me. We all worked hard and solved the tasks that we set ourselves: we went and found factories, negotiated, signed contracts, and slept like babies from fatigue. It lasted two years. The preparation was at a good level. It was difficult, but it's fun and interesting, when it's difficult! - What is most important for you, where does the idea come from?Ornaments, how would you like to develop this direction? - The main thing in the creation of furniture and accessories CHELEBI Furniture and Décor is the preservation of the national color, the use of traditional ornaments and forms. But all this should be combined with the modern direction and trends of design. We have a difficult task, but we cope with it. Ornaments play a special role in the creation of furniture and accessories: they are interpretations of Sheki Shebek, Guba zeyshura and, of course, Karabakh chelebi, in honor of which the brand was named. It's not for nothing that I mentioned exactly the interpretation of ornaments, because they change - color, shape - but the foundation remains. - Tell us about your collection of clothes. - I have nothing to say yet, as I could not imagine a personal collection of clothes, there are only a few suits that I made for myself. No matter how standard it sounds, I have very little time to implement all the ideas that come to mind. The artist's profession requires a lot of energy. I can compare it with a small child who develops, but does not grow physically, while remaining always mobile and demanding attention. The slightest hackwork in the work leads to imbalance. Sometimes CHELEBI detaches me from everything else, but it is necessary to always keep the balance and move on. - What style of interior is closest to you? - Simple white color, wood, comfortable upholstered furniture, interesting accessories, large windows and all the best that can be. - What is in your own home in the interior? - I live with my parents, this is a semi-Soviet interior with an Azerbaijani accent. Everything is very standard and practical, without experiments. I can not wait to start making an interior in my own house in the near future. I think there will be a lot of things from CHELEBI.
