Interview with Igor Komov at Monday 24th of April 2017

FS: Could you please tell us more about your art and design background? What made you become an artist/designer? Have you always wanted to be a designer?
IK: For as long as I can remember myself, I was always mad about finely designed objects. It was like a discrete abstract world where stories are told in the language of forms, textures and colors. I've entered Moscow Architectural institute because I knew its fundamental design education gets the doors to almost every design field opened for its graduates. Some years later I've chosen jewellery design because of its sacred proximity to the human body and the wide range of its artistic means.

FS: Can you tell us more about your company / design studio?
IK: Today I occupy the position of Jewellery Design course director at British Higher School of Arts and Design in Moscow as well as the position of art director at "Alchemia" jewellery brand. "Alchemia" is a brand of designers' untraditional jewellery and BHSAD is a place where I structure and share my experience.

FS: What is "design" for you?
IK: A way to get connected with high esthetic qualities and elaborate functionality.

FS: What kinds of works do you like designing most?
IK: Rings. Because of their sophisticated ergonomics.

FS: What is your most favorite design, could you please tell more about it?
IK: It is not created yet :) The journey into design and experience never ends.

FS: What was the first thing you designed for a company?
IK: Together with my co-author Katerina Komova we transformed ceramic bowls into the ring set. The collection is still being produced, it is called "Chalices".

FS: What is your favorite material / platform / technology?
IK: I widely use 3D-modelling. I'm not at all friendly with manual labor :)

FS: When do you feel the most creative?
IK: I should get my mind totally calmed down when I begin to design something. This state of mind is necessary to make things in high precision.

FS: Which aspects of a design do you focus more during designing?
IK: Most of all I concentrate on accuracy of expression of what I am going to put into a project.

FS: What kind of emotions do you feel when you design?
IK: A huge variety of emotions, you know) As every project represents different aesthetics, the design process is filled with different emotional experiences every single time.

FS: What kind of emotions do you feel when your designs are realized?
IK: Satisfaction mostly.


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