From an early age I liked to draw. I studied architecture and wanted always to become an interior designer. Throughout the interior design projects I started working on different types of lighting design projects as well as furniture designs.
dsignedby is founded during the year of 2008 by Iva (visual communication professional) and Irena Kilibarda (architect). It is a small studio working internationally mainly in the fields of interior design, visual communication and product design.
My last exhibition was during Milano Fuorisalone, Superdesign Show in Superstudio group/ Tortona 27, Milano/ 14-19.04.2015 and the ''Simplicity of Black&White'' dsignedby exhibition at Stilwerk limited edition contemporary design gallery Hamburg/ 20.03-16.05.2015
Milano EXPO from 1st of May, taking part of pavillion Serbia, Bio-Mediterraneum Cluster
I have studied architecture in Belgrade Faculty of Architecture and while studying started working on projects. I have applyed at the Faculty of Architecture, but always wanted to work in interior design projects, which became my main occupancy during the past 10 years.
Designer.. well, if someone mentioned to me earlier that I will become, next to my interior designing job, a furniture designer, exhibit throughout the world and in the end have my own production, I wouldn't believe that person. New technologies, materials used in design motivate me. The force that pulls you to do more and go further, create something new.
I designed throughout my interior design projects many different things, concerning housing, shop design or hotel design. Through these interior projects I got the ideas of products that I started producing and selling - tables, luminaires, housing elements, kitchens.. I will design more of furniture and equipment in the next years to come.
I find that I am just at the beggining of a designer career process. Young designers have to love what they do, inform themselves of what exhists already in design and follow the work of older designers. They should learn a lot throughout their lives to find the right formula for becoming design legends.
