AN : My education has started in my early years when was attending the children’s art center after that step after step I was going further till now, because I think that you learn the whole life and during your design processes, it never ends.
AN : I couldn’t imagine to be something else then a designer, I wanted to take part on creating and underlining the beauty on this world.
AN : No one forced me, I would say that I forced to be a designer.
AN : I design environment and all that I design at the moment is what I wish to design.
AN : Young designers should be honest with them and find their inspiration in their souls. They should never try to find their art in another art or artist.
AN : A great designer is someone with genius ideas and his one style, evolved through the years, someone who investigates new technics and possibilities. A good designer is someone who reproduces something what is already done in a new way.
AN : The individuality, profundity, and the unusual appearance turns a good design into a great design and of course the main idea so the meaning.
AN : All the points I have noted in the last question are the value. In my opinion everyone should invest in comfort ability and beauty so in good design.
AN : When I would have endless time and possibilities I would make the whole world more beautiful.
AN : Create something what would teach people to love.
AN : All my creations strive for being beautiful and to say something like their history.
AN : They are a lot so it’s not possible for me to list because the list would be too long.
AN : I love the works of Rene Lalique

AN : They could research themselves and their own nature.
AN : I would become a doctor.

AN : My first teacher, Samvel Baghdasaryan. He helped me to get loose of my boundaries I had lined for myself and to be free.
AN : My endless imagination helped me.
AN : To be misunderstood and not accepted at this time period. Today’s creations are never understandable today, they are understandable in a later time period.
AN : In the best possible way matching to the creations style and meaning.
AN : I never talk about the next project in advance, only after it is done and presentable.
AN : he goal is to add one more Idea into the bank of my Ideas.
AN : People would be never able to predict my next step because the next one is more Ã than the last one.
AN : When design is able to teach people being esthetic, it teaches them to be more kind also and besides of this it gives them more comfort and beauty
AN : As I said I won’t talk about the future.
AN : Each work gives me satisfaction no matter small or big.

AN : It is very different for all of them.
AN : I begin from the mind.
AN : I want to have my very own input into the slogan “Beauty will save the world”.
AN : For example, I try to be independent from both of this versions by being honest and individual in my works.
AN : Of course technology has a big role in the design world but I give the importance to paper and pencil like in the old days.
AN : Most of the time I use very simple equipment and my hands.
AN : All materials on the world can be used and all of them has their role.
AN : All I want is them to join it and to love it or not, I think questions are not needed in this case.
AN : I would like to have done that project.
AN : It happens sometimes that I work with someone but this is really very seldom, I use to work alone.
AN : Each person can influence with their individuality.
AN : All good books had their influence in some of my collections.

AN : The funniest thing is about my last and artistic name I guess because in different languages it has a very different meaning for example in our language it is a fruit in the Arabic language it means light, in German it means only so in every country I have exhibitions it is always the same question why Nur ??
AN : A good thought, Idea and an inspiration makes my whole day gorgeous.
AN : It was obvious that I would become a designer but a great designer I haven’t become yet.
AN : I am sure I won’t be anymore and what will be in general could be anything, I have no Idea about that one.
