Maria Samoylenko and Maria Cherkasova, students of the Novosibirsk State University of Architecture, Design and Arts, presented furniture in the Soviet style. Evgeny Kuskov, head of the Kenlamp workshop (Nizhny Novgorod), decorated the exhibition with unusual polygonal sculptures made of metal. Also the production company Mrs. Homes, Stella Furniture Factory, El millor Design Studio, and interior designer Christina Ziegenhegel were among St. Petersburg participants.
In addition, DESIGN ZONA attracted international participants this year: students and alumni of the Architecture and Interior Design departments of the Hanyang University (South Korea) presented six bespoke installations. Many works of young Korean designers were devoted to the secondary use of objects and environmental problems. The brightest exhibit was the dust clouds made by Jiyun Kim and Sungwu Che. The lamps consist of nearly 500 disposable masks and symbolize a serious environmental problem: air pollution forces people in Korea to wear masks.
This time, the DESIGN ZONA space was designed in a brutal loft style by Elena Parshina, the founder and lead designer of the DO DESIGN INTERIOR studio.
