Back to functionality


  • Kate Zhavoronkova: «SvetoCh is a project that reimagines the whole concept of a wall clock. Though wall clocks are no longer that common, they can experience a rebirth if they are given a new meaning that would make people more interested in buying them and hanging them on their walls. According to my design philosophy, a project needs to be aesthetically pleasing and offer solutions to problems. More generally, design needs to respond to the requirements of people that make use of it».
  • Furniture Design: «Nowadays, we're moving towards more minimal lifestyles and I think that needs to be reflected in design. We need simple, environmentally sustainable, practical products that are useful and can make day-to-day life simpler, more convenient and more enjoyable. My project, Kazimir, is inspired by the work of Kazimir Malevich, the Russian avant-garde artist of the 1920s who was known all over Russian and abroad too. It allows you to have a museum in your home, something that can be loved and appreciated by art aficionados but that is also a practical, decorative design product».
  • Ivan Krupin: «SaloneSatellite is a place where it's possible to share your ideas and creations. I'm presenting my Free line lamp. I believe that people who move around a lot need simple, multi-functional objects and this lamp ticks that box. It can easily be placed on a table or attached to a wall, while its flexible design means you can alter the light direction or attach the lamp to a variety of objects, even in difficult-to-reach places».
  • Karina Vitina: «My design is Bud, whose name derives from its lotus-flower shape. It is designed for people who don't really enjoy sleeping, which is of course a crucial part of every day. We hope the integrated technology and user-friendly design will help more and more people understand this. While technology is an integral part of the design, it's just as important - during the creative process - to consider the end user and dedicate time to research, in order to ensure the best design and function».
  • Anastassiya Leonova: «I'm presenting the Tableware for the City Nomads collection, which is all about small dimensions and versatile functions. The circular shaping and special incisions in the objects allow you to transform them from plate to soup dish to glass, simply by using wooden rings of different diameters. The crockery set is made using leather processed according to ancient Kazakh methods. The design, which is inspired by modern "nomads" who spend the majority of their time travelling, explores the past to find new methods to use in the future».
  • Natalia Kostomarova: «For me, design is about beauty, functionality and sharing. When you combine those three elements, you can create something truly worthwhile. By following this concept, I created SweatTok (Pergamena), an inside lamp comprising a central body decorated with stamped graphic patterns. When the lamp is turned on, the light reflects the patterns on the second lampshade. They represent the old letters of the Russian alphabet, showing that even ancient Russian decorative elements can be used for modern design».
  • Elena Perminova: «For me, every design project is a story to tell and an opportunity to capture emotions and convert them into solid form. This is the philosophy behind Plex, a lamp that represents an exciting design story about the role of decorative light in our homes. On top of that, it's inspired by my childhood dream of becoming an astronaut! Plex changes the space it is located in thanks to the shadows created by its interlinking cords, which define the structure. At the same time, its dynamic shape conjures up visions in our mind. Is it a jellyfish? Is it a tulip bud? Is it a rocket ready to take off, powered by a simple lamp?»
  • Elizaveta Andreyko: «Drawing inspiration from the furniture traditions of Shaker culture, I have created Masyanya, a stool made using a lathe. I have stuck with the same style and technology, but have brought this up to date using nuanced finishes. The stool evokes the shape of a face, with "eyes" and "ears", with every element serving a specific purpose. The "ears" allow you to hang up a bag, while the openings of the "eyes" make it easier to move the stool. Through this design, I'm trying to shine a light on the issue of seating in co-working spaces, for example, where everyone needs their own space and to have their belongings to hand».
  • Albina Dzusova: «My project is called Chair Zu. Chairs are one of the most important parts of any interior - they are used for working, eating, resting. Chair Zu is eye-catching and becomes the centre of the interior design project, breathing a new vibe into the room. The lines are influenced by my own philosophy, whereby design should focus on simple, geometric shaping inspired by nature. It's no coincidence that the concept of form is my starting point when creating a project».
  • Natalia Ovchinnikov: «At SaloneSatellite I'm exhibiting my multi-functional product called INONE. It is a wood-fried barbecue, a charcoal grill and a table all in one. It can be paired with a storage system, a case and a range of accessories. INONE is practical yet compact, making it ideal for virtually any outdoor area thanks to its minimal design. I decided to present this particular project because it's an object that often gets overlooked by young designers and is rarely seen here at this event, despite the fact that fire is an integral part of our lives, especially outdoors (we live in a very cold country!). We need it to cook, relax and warm up. And what better way to bring people together?».
  • Ilya Legchatov: «Brahma chair is a modern type of chair for meditation, designed to satisfy all the ergonomic demands necessary for people to maintain the lotus position for long periods of time. I drew on my years of experience doing yoga to help me with the design. Ergonomics, stylish shaping, texture, tactile sensations and emotions are the guiding principles of my creative process. I believe they are the foundations of modern design».
  • Sol Arts: «I believe that in the near future all industrial design objects will need to be ecological, functional, made using modern technology, creative, ergonomic and easy to produce. It's an approach I used for Solarice, a stool with the seat pad made from rice, a raw material synonymous with sustainability, the importance of looking after nature and of doing so with care. Rice is an eco-friendly material - a source of life and health. Its texture on the seat pad of the stool conveys a sense of warmth and pleasure, as well as being resistant to impact, safe for kids and non-toxic».
  • Fedotova Alexandra: «The future of design will definitely see more research into new ideas linked to object transformation and modularity. A key concept in the sector remains colour - an abstract element that provokes a range of emotions within people, depending on personal preference and cultural background. At SaloneSatellite I'm presenting Moon, a comfortable, practical, aesthetically appealing piece of furniture for the bathroom. The challenge was to create a set of furniture that could be used by people of different ages and sizes. The piece features a mirror on two levels, with a metal structure and a MDF main section equipped with a 12mm Corian shelf, again on two levels».

An appointment with SaloneSatellite emerging designers at iSaloni WorldWide Moscow, among crafting inspirations and cultural contaminations

After the Milan event, where SaloneSatellite celebrated its 20th anniversary with a range of exhibitions that paid tribute to its history and relevance in the field of design innovation, the event returns to Moscow for more cutting-edge experimentation and design. Now in its 13th edition, SaloneSatellite WorldWide Moscow brings together around 50 young participants encompassing some of the best designers and students at the most prestigious design schools in Russia and the former Soviet Union. The participants’ creations are the embodiment of the slogan of this edition of SaloneSatellite: “Milan.Moscow.Design - #artofcreation”. They strike the perfect balance between art and design, technological innovation and tradition, a focus on sustainability and their culture of origin. The bond with Milan is strengthened by the fact that the top three prize winners in Moscow (the awards ceremony will take place on Friday 13 October at 12:00) will be invited to visit the 2018 edition of SaloneSatellite, which will be held as part of Milan Furniture Fair between 17 and 22 April 2018.
