Iskos-Berlin design studio was formed by Boris Berlin and Aleksej Iskos in 2010. Working across graphics and furniture design the duo want to create pieces which tell a story. They say of their work “We see design as an art of storytelling. This story is normally quite complex, consisting of semantics, morphology, materiality, the technology of objects and many other elements. But the clearer your story is, the more likely people are to understand it. The more surprising you make your story, the more likely they are to remember it. And finally, the more you make people smile, the more likely they are to love it!"
Although the pair have worked together for most of their careers, in 1987, Boris co-founding Komplot Design, where Aleksej was employed as his assistant for 11 years.
