Russian architect, designer and engineer, born in 1976. Lives in the capital of this cold severe country. That's why cap with ear-flaps is his favorite during long Russian winters. While designing Ilya concentrates on making technically well-thought yet warm and cozy things with some subtle humor involved as well. Having travelled a lot around the world and in his native country (sailing across the Pacific Ocean, hitchhiking all around NZ and living in Thailand just to be mentioned) he tries to combine native and international in his designs but only in very delicate manner. Thanks to his wide range of education and experience, automobile designer and construction engineer, architect and graphic designer, Ilya always tries to see all tasks from the different points of view which leads to well-thought and reasonable solutions.
