We are the tandem of experienced interior and landscape designer Tatiana Dryukova and Yuri Suslin, the founder of Metal Style company, engaged in the manufacture of individual design of steel structures.
Architect by education. She is engaged in architecture and architectural environment design since 1983.
Over the years, Tatiana’s portfolio was replenished not only with houses and apartments, but also with bars and restaurants. Layout design and individual furniture were thought through for all objects, and drawings were implemented at the “Metal-style” workshop. And then came the moment when the experience of designing and manufacture of individual products is wanted to use not only in our own projects. Talks about it is time to move on to mass production began in 2012. Several years passed, and we along with Yuriy Suslin, the founder of “Metal Style”company moved to action. Everything crystallized when the market has stopped to buy very expensive imported goods. We originally set out to begin production of budget furniture.
Delving into every detail to create projects and designing individual furniture for them, as well as working with furniture from world brands, analyzing and accumulating information, the idea of the creation of the author’s own line of furniture was born.
Th line is opened with half-bar stool with metal frame and seat made of plywood with a print. Initially the collection was called “Loft-cappuccino”, but after the first chair with Darts print was bought immediately at the Kiff 2016 exhibition, we have decided that it is a sign and renamed it to “Darts”. Chairs are nice because the seat can be changed countless times. Our chair is well centered, its feet are set so it is impossible to swing and thus to break the stool. It’s heavy. Previously, heavy furniture was done heavy intentionally that it is not tossed in bars. This will not happen, of course, but furniture will be moved much less. We have most comfortable height of the chair for a person? it’s 65 cm tall and it can be adjusted.. The prototype was as a piano stool. And who says you can not sit on the piano chair at the dinner table? We started with the hard plywood seat, but today there is an assortment of different modifications: the textile and leather. In addition to the chairs in the collection, there are sofas, outdoor benches, bar and half-bar tables. These items are ideal for public places and for the cottages. It is for this reason that architect calls her own products style “veranda”. At the same time, style of the interior can be anything.
