Mohammad Meyzari
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?
MM: I hold a bachelor's degree in interior design. From the early days of entering University, I loved designing spaces, especially the layout of the equipment in them. Yes, as I was younger many of our relatives told me that you would become a designer because I deal with it in different ways. Because I've always been designing and eluding, insomuch it was an intrinsic subject that had been with me since birth. Therefore I've always loved being a designer.

FS: Can you tell us more about your company / design studio?
MM: My studio, Roch, focuses on the design of the accessories called candles, but not the candles we know and remember from the old days, but candles with a modern and environmentally friendly approach. Durable and continuous charging. No environmental harms.

FS: What is "design" for you?
MM: Design for me is equal to communicating with nature and creating a unique work to create a different communication experience. Something that may have originated from the past but is different from its past though is in harmony with the present era.

FS: What kinds of works do you like designing most?
MM: I particularly like the design of accessories and interiors of the house. Of course, first and for all, anything that comes from the flame.

FS: What is your most favorite design, could you please tell more about it?
MM: Obviously, the liquid-fueled candle that won the A’Design award 2020 is my most popular design, because it provided a very different experience of candles. On the other hand, it was rechargeable and affordable. Also, with good fuel, it can make the space beautiful for long hours without environmental pollution.

FS: What was the first thing you designed for a company?
MM: My first design started with the design of concrete containers for paraffin.

FS: What is your favorite material / platform / technology?
MM: Concrete, paraffin, and glass are my favorite materials also my favorite technology is a 3D printer because I can print any design and make molds at it and produce that by concrete.

FS: When do you feel the most creative?
MM: When I can create something for my audience that they have never experienced before, that guarantees the health of their body and soul.

FS: Which aspects of a design do you focus more during designing?
MM: I contemplate the newness of the work when I design, and the next step, how far I can serve humanity and nature by designing it.

FS: What kind of emotions do you feel when you design?
MM: Usefulness, being creative, and love.

FS: What kind of emotions do you feel when your designs are realized?
MM: Succeeding and enjoying being influential.

FS: What makes a design successful?
MM: In my opinion, creativity, application, and how much a design can contribute to the health of nature, there are three main parameters for the analysis of a good design.

FS: When judging a design as good or bad, which aspects do you consider first?
MM: Creativity

FS: From your point of view, what are the responsibilities of a designer for society and environment?
MM: Obviously, a good design should be able to make a positive psychological impact on the other person, and this good feeling will help people to make a better society and also have to guarantee higher health of the environment.

FS: How do you think the "design field" is evolving? What is the future of design?
MM: If we move forward in this way, we can’t find resources in the next few years to use. So, I think we need to change the process of using resources in designs so we can contribute more to our environment and other resources that are living on this planet. Using renewable resources and environmentally friendly materials that can be effective ways.

FS: When was your last exhibition and where was it? And when do you want to hold your next exhibition?

MM: I collect ideas by seeing artifacts from all over the world as well as being inspired by nature.

FS: How would you describe your design style? What made you explore more this style and what are the main characteristics of your style? What's your approach to design?
MM: I choose the modern title for my style, the simplicity and minimality of the designs of the present age are something that affects me because at my designs there is always minimality, which makes it easy to communicate with that plan in a short time.

FS: Where do you live? Do you feel the cultural heritage of your country affects your designs? What are the pros and cons during designing as a result of living in your country?
MM: Iran. My country has always been a good source of design for me in terms of its history in design and art, and this heritage has always made me look back as well as the future in design that the integration of these two has always been the output of my work.

FS: How do you work with companies?
MM: I usually work with companies on each project. I work freelance.

FS: What are your suggestions to companies for working with a designer? How can companies select a good designer?
MM: In my opinion, design happens in loneliness, quiet, and peace of mind, of course, 90% of the time. Therefore, choosing designers who have no concerns other than design can be a good criterion for choosing them properly.

FS: Can you talk a little about your design process?
MM: My design process always starts in a moment, I have a spark in my mind the new idea comes up. Then it continues with the looking and searching around that idea, then, the process of preparing initial etudes and the construction of test samples, afterward fixing the prototype bug until reaching the final and complete the sample.

FS: What are 5 of your favorite design items at home?
MM: Candles. Lampshade. Sculptures. Wall knocker. Candlesticks

FS: Can you describe a day in your life?
MM: The beginning of the morning always starts with a complete and delicious breakfast, going to the gym, hot shower, a cup of tea, go to the workshop and personal studio and handle the new designs and production line of products.

MM: To be more connected to the people around. Have more conversations with the surroundings and the people around them so they can design better.

FS: From your perspective, what would you say are some positives and negatives of being a designer?
MM: The positive point of being a designer is that you can help people and the community around you with the right designs. The negative matter of being a designer is that you always have a disturbance in dealing with cases or places that have not the proper design, which makes you always think about how to improve the design of this subject, and sometimes all this thought for one subject causes you can't enjoy enough.
