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.

Extended Interview with Irena kilibarda

Could you please tell us about your experience as a designer, artist, architect or creator?
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.
How did you become a designer?
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.
What are your priorities, technique and style when designing?
I chose to become a designer, since I was always a good drawer and a creative person.
Which emotions do you feel when designing?
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.
What particular aspects of your background shaped you as a designer?
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.
What are your advices to designers who are at the beginning of their career?
Good design has to be at the same time functional, useful, sustainable, long lasting as well as good looking.
