Russian designer Maxim Maximov leads the team at Asketik, a Moscow-based interior and product design studio. Located inside Moscow’s Metropolis Mall, the studio’s first Together store features a clean, minimalist aesthetic designed for maximum functionality. Classic details like exposed warehouse shelving and 15x15 white matt tiles pay tribute to the industrial look of Soviet supermarkets while the prominent use of red represents small details from Maximov’s childhood.
Maxim Maximov is a Russian designer based in St. Petersburg, Russia. After studying industrial design at the Architectural University of Oryol, Russia, Maximov came to public attention in 2011 when he won Prem Furniture, a design competition judged by Ross Lovegrove, Vadim Kibardin and Oskar Zieta. That same year, Maximov participated in SaloneSatellite Moscow with his project One Line and was subsequently published in Wallpaper magazine and Interni. His character and sense of humour are evident in his work, where he uses tubular metal and other materials to create fluid, minimalist designs that are both classic and contemporary.
