Interview with Alexey Samygin at Tuesday 26th of April 2016

FS: What is the main principle, idea and inspiration behind your design?
AS: I think that compass is one of the main tools in our profession.

FS: What has been your main focus in designing this work? Especially what did you want to achieve?
AS: I wanted my table to be unusual, functional, quite neat and, of course, beautiful.

FS: What are your future plans for this award winning design?
AS: With the help of this award, I would like to find like-minded customers, people who can not only pay, but also appreciate the uniqueness and originality of the objects i create.

FS: How long did it take you to design this particular concept?
AS: It took me around 2 weeks to create the idea and pass the drawings to the production.

FS: Why did you design this particular concept? Was this design commissioned or did you decide to pursuit an inspiration?
AS: The task was to create a working desk comfortable for two people to seat at. But anyway there is always space for the inspiration.

FS: Is your design being produced or used by another company, or do you plan to sell or lease the production rights or do you intent to produce your work yourself?
AS: I made a few copies for my old friends, who are also my customers. But i don't reject the possibility of selling or leasing the rights to manufacture the table.

FS: Where there any other designs and/or designers that helped the influence the design of your work?
AS: It is entirely the result of my imagination.

FS: Who is the target customer for his design?
AS: Designers, architects, people of creative professions, or anyone who wants to own an unusual, special object.

FS: What sets this design apart from other similar or resembling concepts?
AS: I think that it’s the design principle and the construction itself.

FS: How did you come up with the name for this design? What does it mean?
AS: I think, it’s quite obvious.

FS: Which design tools did you use when you were working on this project?
AS: Just the pen and the paper.

FS: What is the most unique aspect of your design?
AS: First of all it’s the table for two and secondly it’s originality.

FS: Who did you collaborate with for this design? Did you work with people with technical / specialized skills?
AS: My knowledge in the design and manufacture of furniture was enough to create this project independently.

FS: Is your design influenced by data or analytical research in any way? What kind of research did you conduct for making this design?
AS: This project was made awhile ago and obtained an international patent, to make sure that the item is unique. I haven’t made any other research.

FS: What are some of the challenges you faced during the design/realization of your concept?
AS: It was necessary to produce a true to size mockup to make sure that the drawing board, which is the part of the tabletop, works perfectly.

FS: How did you decide to submit your design to an international design competition?
AS: It was my eldest son’s advice, he’s also my business partner.

FS: What did you learn or how did you improve yourself during the designing of this work?
AS: Despite the long time experience in this area, I continue to learn every day, because every project I make is unique. And while creating this very item, I’m sure I’ve learned something too)


FS: Thank you for providing us with this opportunity to interview you.
