Design is a partnership of Boris Berlin and Aleksej Iskos.
The company works within the fields of industrial, furniture, and graphic design. The firm was only established in late 2010, but Boris and Aleksej have been working together for a number of years. In 1987, Boris co-founded Komplot Design, where Aleksej was employed as an assistant for more than 11 years. This long and fruitful cooperation has allowed them to develop a shared philosophy of design. In their own words:
“We see design as an art of storytelling. This story is normally quite complex, consisting of semantics, morphology, materiality, the technology of objects, and many other elements. But the clearer your story is, the more likely people are to understand it. The more surprising you make your story, the more likely they are to remember it. And finally, the more you make people smile, the more likely they are to love it!
