A childhood fascination with aircraft and, in particular, Zeppelin airships has inspired Iskos-Berlin to create Avion. Avion is a large oval pendant that naturally fills the ‘interior airspace’ of your room. Despite its substantial size, Avion seems to hover in the air. The Avion pendant can be suspended from high up in the room and is ideal for the illumination of canteens, atriums and large rooms. Avion can be arranged in regular formation, as a dynamic pack or in one line to mark a passage through a building.
Iskos–Berlin Design is a partnership of Boris Berlin and Aleksej Iskos. The company works within the fields of industrial, furniture and graphic design. Boris and Aleksej have been working together for several years before establishing their company Iskos–Berlin in 2010.
In 1987, Boris co-founded Komplot Design, where Aleksej was employed as an assistant for more than 11 years. This long and fruitful cooperation has allowed them to develop a shared philosophy of design. In their own words: “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!”
