Amirkhan Abdurakhmanov intrigued me with his masterpiece concept design Change It Wall. I later discovered he has more amazing creative designs in his vault and i when i had the chance to interview him, i discovered more interesting stuff, with no further ado here is what we talked about.
2dots-Can you tell readers a bit about yourself.
AA-I am 24 years old Russian interior designer currently living in Moscow.
2dots-Did you know from childhood you wanted to be a designer?.
AA-Actually I did not think about what I wanted to do in a future when i was a child I just enjoyed my childhood.
2dots-Which is more challenging to you, designing a concept or bringing a project into reality.
AA-Of course the most important thing is the concept.To create something that is not existing is very very difficult.
2dots-How did the Change it Wall come about?
AA-I used to paint my walls in my room very often because as you know all creative people do that. So one day I painted them in red because I was in love and the next day when the love for red was gone what to do i do?, go to the shop and buy a black paint (smiles) So it is very complicated and needed a lot of money to do it. That is how this idea was born.
2dots-What is the status now, i know you are working on making it a reality.
AA-To bring a concept to reality is more complicated as I thought, especially when it is going to be a mass market product. Now I am working on a prototype and when it is ready i will try to find investors.
2dots-How do you define Creativity.
AA-I think Wikipedia will give you the answer (smiles).
2dots-What is the most important key factor to you when you are designing.
AA-Understand the problem and client need.
2dots-What inspires the core creativity of your designs.
AA-The unsolved problems.
2dots-Do you have a standard creation approach or different approach for each project.
AA-It s always the same approach.
2dots-How do you feel when your work come to reality, if am correct the guitar store is.
AA-No. It is just a concept.
2dots-Aside from designing what else are you in to.
AA-I am a guitar player and I have a band, that is my second passion.
2dots-Describe how your ideal space will look like.
AA-It is functional. less furniture. clean. neat. minimalistic. Actually all i need just a good kitchen,computer and bed (laughs).
2dots-Is there something you dream to design in future.
AA-I really want to design universal church for all religions.
2dots-What is the best thing you like about what you do.
AA-I do not know (laughs) I just do what I want to do
