Kostia, born in 1974, designer.
His motto: "Sublimation of matter"
When asked to describe his work, Kostia, prefers to show how he creates and takes you through his full artistic process.
From drawings in his sketchbooks to his models, from his technical drawing to his realizations; Kostia does it all. This intellectual and manual work only finds light in the final production.
Kostia works himself wood, brass, bronze and lacquer in his studio to keep control over the accomplishment of his first idea.
Entering Kostia’s studio is like opening the door to a cabinet of curiosities dedicated to creating unusual furniture.
The Scène Ouverte, and Dutko Galleries in Paris represent Kostia.
The beautiful houses such as those of the Hotel du Crillon, the Ledoyen restaurant, the hotel Lutetia or La Reserve, also appreciate his work.
In 2018, it is the prestigious institution France’s National Furniture acquired Kostia creations,
Kostia was labeled Manufactured in Paris in 2017, 2019 and 2020, exhibited at the Museum of Decorative Arts in Berlin for the JEMA of 2018.
He participates at the Collectible design fair in Brussels with Galerie Scene Ouverte, at ArtParis ArtFair in Paris with Ideat magazine, at PAD London with Galerie Dutko...
In 2020, he is recommended by the Homo Faber Guide.
