About us

Nissa Kinzhalina

I was born and raised in the Kazakhstan’s steppe. From childhood, I studied huge empty spaces and drew the existing reality in my mind. That’s how I developed spatial thinking, and that’s how I began to realize that I could rotate objects in my head without their physical existence.

To a greater extent, I grew up on Japanese architecture, which subsequently affected the creation of furniture. The more I looked at the large architectural forms, the more I became interested in the details that made the house. Then, I realized that I wanted to create furniture that would make me want to build a house for it. My furniture and architecture are very tightly connected, as I always proceed from one to another. For example, the design of my table can be easily applied to the architecture of the building and vice versa, I can make furniture from any building.
