He graduated from the Institute of Applied Arts and Design in St. Petersburg. We believe in tension between art and engineering, between manufacturer and consumer, between different cultures, between tradition and innovation, rationality and intuition, logic and emotion … As with the wirewalker, who requires a high degree of tension in the wire to maintain balance, the tension between these polar contradictions is the condition of a design’s success.
