Under the direction of Volen Valentinov, studio VOOOD draws on the foundations and design principles that have been developed over the last decade of practice.VOOOD work is driven by the principles of authenticity, consideration and enthusiasm. The studio’s approach is to create a unique identity for each project and this authenticity resonates not only in the design solution but in the selection of a natural palette of materials and the sharing of knowledge with craftsmen and companies. A small staff collaboratively share design inspiration and offer a wealth of interdisciplinary skills, drawing upon several areas of expertise: Interior Design, Industrial Design, Furniture Design and Styling. All backed up by a strong administrative support team.
