Mikhail Chistyakov is a designer who has gone a long and difficult way from a craftsman to a designer. He started working as a modeler in the porcelain factory and thoroughly mastered the entire technology of ceramic production. This gave him the opportunity to make a technologically verified, accurate design. Later, Mikhail always got to the bottom of the material he was working with, he explored all its features and full processing methods.
The designer successfully combines both a manual approach to design and the use of a computer. This combination allows him to make complex projects without losing the identity of the objects of manual labor.
In his works, Mikhail constantly refers to the technology, functionality, expediency, and justification of all the details of the project. Doing much with small means is a key idea of his design philosophy.
