When you think of Moscow and its corresponding decor schemes, Scandinavian minimalism isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. But take a look at the interiors in this post — with their exposed-bulb lamps, gridded pillowcases, herringbone floors, moody palettes, and splashes of pink, they’d be right at home in a Stockholm flat. In fact, they’re the work of Crosby Studios, the Moscow- and New York–based furniture and interiors studio that debuted its first collection with us at last year’s Sight Unseen OFFSITE (now available at Patrick Parrish). Founded by architect Harry Nuriev, Crosby Studios seems to look to anywhere but Russia for inspiration — Collection 1, the studio’s first, sculptural furniture range (made in Brooklyn), was inspired by classical Roman architecture and modern Japanese masters like Shiro Kuramata. Japan pops up again when you ask Nuriev how he begins to reimagine a space. Nuriev believes in a kind of aesthetic healing — that a well-designed and orderly space can somehow free you. He cites the Japanese architecture firm SANAA as a particular influence: “When I’m inside their spaces, start to think about things that don’t usually come to my mind. When architecture starts influencing your way of thinking — that’s when you can become calm.” We recently spoke to Nuriev to find out more about his ascetic philosophy as well as what’s next for this emerging talent from the other side of the world.
