ISKOS – BERLIN is a Copenhagen based studio founded in 2010 by design duo Boris Berlin & Aleksej Iskos. Their cooperation started much earlier – in KOMPLOT Design, where Boris Berlin was a co-founder and one of two partners and Aleksej was employed as an assistant for more than 11 years.
The products designed first within KOMPLOT and then in ISKOS – BERLIN were awarded numerous national and international design awards. Represented in: Design Museum Denmark, Die Neue Sammlung - The International Design Museum Munich, Museum of Modern Art, New York, etc.
“We see design as an art of storytelling. This story is normally quite complex, consisting of semantics, morphology, materiality, 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!
At ISKOS — BERLIN, we look to experiment with new technologies and materials, to explore their impact on everyday objects.
