Design Legends ("DL") had the distinct honour to interview legendary designer Shiva Pouryousef Khameneh ("SPK") for their original perspective and innovative approach to design as well as their creative lifestyle, we are very pleased to share our interview with our distinguished readers.
SPK : My academic background turns back to Oxford School of Architecture where I received BA Interior Architecture from and Pratt Institute ranked number one nationally in the professional survey in Design Intelligence where I graduated with MSc Interior Design. I am certified in more than ten intensive design and human environmental health courses accredited by IDCEC and Hanley Wood University in Washington D.C. and my last certificate is from Harvard Graduate School of Design in Architectural Imagination.
SPK : Solving problems and the design team
SPK : Absolutely my choice
SPK : My passion is for strategic design, more participatory and co-working spaces
SPK : First, think outside the box but do not fall in love with the initial idea and be aware that evolution and adaptability are inseparable from any successful business. Instead of doing a massive business like a “dinosaur” that can’t move, think of many small models.
SPK : The great designer develops ideas for communities.
SPK : It's when the end-user is involved and it's simple and earth-friendly.
SPK : Four season hotel, New York branch!
SPK : Entrepreneurship starts with illusion and complex ideas, one of those skills is to have an analytical mind and broad vision. But the key is no to pass and take “what if’s? ” serious. They need philosophical explorations, ethical responsibility, aesthetic expressions, and practical applications in line with professional standards.
SPK : Trusting random funny ideas and counting casual brainstormings as vital seminar! Believing that team works not individual and know the art of networking to accomplish with other business owners in a similar industry to hit the market.
SPK : To me, interior design is a tool to create an experience and permission to understand people in real life. How they engage with their families and blend into social life. That’s why my business is my identity + Design Studio. We design a trial if it’s either a mind shift or strategizing a business model.
SPK : Complicated presentations are not sexy! The presentation has to be as simple as a kid could understand it.
SPK : Design with clients not for them!
