|Svitlana Antonovich. A master class from a famous designer|
A leading figure in the new stream of Kazakh interior design, Svitlana Antonovich is a name you know or should know. Kazakh designer Svitlana Antonovich gives master classes in interior design and aids with money for charitable processes. It is essential to help people if possible in time of need. The purpose of Svitlana Antonovich's charitable seminars is to raise funds for those in need, inspiring other people to do the same. The January master class for interior designers was broadcasted in Moscow, Dubai, and Kyiv. Svitlana provided charity support to the Pugachev Psychoneurological orphanage in the Zhytomyr region. Svitlana shares her creative workshop's secrets to help practicing designers develop their style and create exciting spaces.
On the program:
1. How to start a design project. Sources of inspiration.
2. Working with space, textures, lighting.
3. From apartment design to the interior of a yacht, plane, helicopter.
4. Influence of the pandemic on the development of interior design.
The main message of the master class is not about how to create interiors for VIP people, not about how to impress them with a magnificent hall or attract attention with shiny finishing. The master class is more about design thinking, and how it changes the world around us, that design is not selfishness and not boasting. It's about creating spaces where people can be who they are but a little better. It's about the beauty of design in making the right feelings in that space and, ultimately, the ability of design to impact our personal life by changing our actions and behavior.
- According to Svitlana, the DNA of design believes that thoughtful, responsible, and collaborative design can and should make people's lives better.
Svitlana teaches how to ask the right initial questions when starting a new project.
The most important thing to consider when starting a project is the client's needs and desires. And we do this by asking a lot of questions. Find out what have they on their minds? How do they want to live in this space? We call this a client program. The program is how the client wants to live in the house.
- When I design a space, I look at it as a cabin of a yacht or a plane, where every square inch needs to be taken into account, and if inches or meters are missed, you need to create it visually. A good designer is a visual master, and mirrors, for example, are the perfect tool for expanding space. There are many different ways to use mirrors, and I use them all the time in my projects.
- Lighting is everything, says Svitlana Antonovich. The designer talks about working with natural light, creating a mood by brightness adjustment, choosing lamps, and making lighting scenarios. Light can also change architecture.
Light can make a piece of art more presentable. It can raise the ceiling of a room. It can create a theatre in a room. Lighting can create an atmosphere.
Svitlana describes her style as "warm, concentrated and multilayered." Her design is a master class in premeditation, with all the meticulous details, culminating in a sophisticated and uncomplicated home, even if the process was not. Every carefully thought-out centimeter of the interior is where it should be.
Svitlana Antonovich works on projects ranging from private residences, offices, and hotels to yachts and planes specializing in luxury interiors.
Luxury Antonovich Design, which helps Svitlana bring her design projects to life, is a studio that attracts people of luxury services. The studio creates interiors for various industries, including luxury residential complexes, cars, yachts, and private jets.
Recently, the studio was asked to develop a redesign of the private helicopter cabin. "We have studied the VIP client: his interests, desires, preferences, hobbies," says Svitlana.
The creative challenge was to reimagine the experience of flying aboard a private helicopter to give passengers a sense of luxury at the highest level, combining the latest technology and craftsmanship.
For example, when designing the helicopter's interior, the designer drew inspiration from the interiors of high-end racing cars, a big fan of which is the client.
In this project, we have created a sporty and modern helicopter cabin inspired by high-end racing cars' styling lines. The overall design combines several technological features that aim to give the passenger a greater sense of comfort and physical interaction with the environment, such as a ventilated underside and seatback.
One of the current issues raised at the workshop is the change in functionality at home due to the pandemic.
Infectious diseases such as typhoid fever, tuberculosis, and cholera have long influenced how we look and design our homes, and COVID-19 is no exception. Signs of how designers have responded to these illnesses have become standard practice in homes today, but only a few people know. The changes taking place today will continue over the next decade.
Infectious diseases had always impact interior design. In the mid-19th century, the cholera epidemic led some fabrics to be perceived as collectors of pathogenic bacteria, so smooth materials were used more than textured.
The spread of typhoid fever has brought to stop using luxury textiles and wall-to-wall carpets as breeding grounds for dust and disease, resulting in the extensive use of surfaces such as linoleum for floors and white subway tiles, where you can see mud.
COVID-19 is the newest infectious disease that hit us in the design of our homes. This pandemic has not only raised awareness of the importance of cleanliness once again but has helped us understand how meaningful our relationship with the environment is.
Copper, brass, and bronze have been proven to kill a wide variety of bacteria and microorganisms within two hours, which makes them ideal for implementing into your home.
COVID-19 has also influenced the way we view distances in our homes. We realized how important it is to have specific places for certain activities, and home offices are needed more than ever.
Since many people continue to work from home, it is essential to have a designated area for quiet work.
The work type will also determine the home office's overall design, so it will be essential to design a space that offers flexibility for customization. With its dark colors and woodwork, the area is ideal for those who need to read documents all day long. Whereas a brighter and more structured design encourages creativity and productivity.
However, it is essential to create a space that makes relaxation, reduces stress and anxiety, and stimulates our senses. Biofriendly design, which contributes elements from nature, revives us and brings a new sense of serenity and peace. It does this by using plants and vegetation to help remove harmful VOCs commonly found in paint, carpets, and furniture. Finally, set up a space using pastel colors with vibrant patterns and accents also refreshes our minds for a more relaxed and productive experience.
Nature is now our shrine and a happy place where we can rest a little. Balconies or small patios will be one of the most important spaces. These outdoor patios also increase the amount of natural light in the home. Natural light adds brightness to the interior, while the finishes reflect the light and provide a healthy dose of vitamin D.
While COVID-19 has seriously disrupted our daily routines and habits, it has also enabled us to truly understand what is essential in our lives and determine what kind of lifestyle we want to have. Our homes have moved from where we should live to where we want to live.
