Vladimir Ivanov Puts The Fun in Functional

This whimsical set of objects comes from Siberian designer Vladimir Ivanov, who is also an architect. However, once the Russian designer began to design objects, he was addicted. Now, he no longer works in architecture, and is busy expanding his collection.

In his work he uses three main materials – concrete, metal, and wood. Each piece is simple, functional, and has a playful touch that reminds you not to take design too seriously. From a rocket lamp to bow-tie candleholders, the collection is imaginative and puts the fun in functional.
