About 

My interest in design dates back to my childhood, when I used to spend f time in my parents studio.  From the early age I was exposed to the fascinating process of how artists where inventing themes, designing and crafting ornaments, selecting color pallets and creating composition on silk, felt, cotton and other fabrics with diverse textures. I have been taught various techniques and I spent hours working; however, later I realized that I wanted to give a third dimension to my art. I became interested in product design and architecture.

In 2006 I entered Architecture department at Tbilisi State Academy of Arts, where I received my Bachelor’s degree. Later on, spending more time in architecture firms back in Tbilisi, my hometown and various interior design projects in an office in NYC, I have realized how quality of space affects the way people interact with the environment, and how the atmosphere of the design creates the impact on their experience. It trigged my interest in Interior Design spaces and how people respond to the design, layout and proportions. In 2014 I entered at Pratt Institute and graduated from Science in Interior Design.

I truly believe, that designer’s sensitivity towards space proportions, natural,color, materiality, and diversity of textures, knowledge of how to integrate all these elements into one design leads to an unforgettable adventure for the visitors.

Awards 

SOFA CHICAGO, 1st Place

Pratt Institute's 2015 SOFA CONNECT lounge proposal is based on the idea of a city as a place of constant change. Titled “Paper + Air,” the proposal considers the life of a city and seeks to unify the past, present, and future through forms that might be found in the overlap between expansion and contraction. The goal is to ultimately fabricate a lounge that is readily transportable without compromising its spatial impact.
