Jurij Rahimkulov is about the bold and artistic. With a minimalistic precision he gets the bold to blend in and become obvious and simple.
Mitab was the first company to understand my ambition and let me be creative.
I think they are doing a job worth all respect, taking on young unknown designers.
Jurij is originally från Russia and moved to Sweden to immerse himself in design. Jurij was brought up in an artistic and creative surrounding. Jurij´s father was a well known jeweller in Moscow.
Jurij´s artistic interest is also obvious in his design. His products are often inspired by the great artists sculptures or paintings.
Jurij´s first contact with Mitab was when he was a student at HDK school in Gothenburg. Jurij´s mentor Rutger Andersson (also a famous designer) had seen his drawings and brought Jurij along to meet with Mitab. The timing was perfect and on the following fair Mitab launched several new products by the unknown young Jurij Rahimkulov. Among the products was the iconic Mitab easychair Director that has been recognized throughout the world.
