Anastasiya Koshcheeva is a Russian designer, Berlin based, who has gained a place in the world of design with her objects inspired by the Siberian craftsmanship.
Her research starts from observation, from the necessary patience to learn thousand-year old techniques, the same necessary patience to wait the first lukewarm ray of sunshine after the endless Siberian winter. It is Siberia, with its white woods of birches and snow, that constantly recurs in the work of the designer, raised in Krasnoyarsk, in the heart of deep Russia.
The starting point of Koshcheeva works is birchbark, a material naturally waterproof, antibacterial, soft and flexible. After several procedures, made following the instructions of the Siberian artisans, this material changes and takes life in armchairs, stools, boxes and lamps, handmade by the designer herself.
