Victor Vasilev was born in 1974 in Plovdiv, Bulgaria. At the age of 15, his family immigrated to Israel.

In 1996, he moved to Milan to study architecture at the Polytechnic, then continued his studies at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen. During his stay in Denmark, he was deeply influenced by the achievements of Nordic architects, both in architecture and in product design. At the end of his studies, he decided to set up shop in Milan; in 2004, he opened his own studio.

He collaborated with companies like Boffi, Living Divani, MDF Italia and Antrax, and has been garnered with several international awards.

His design ideas are inspired by a continuous search for formal and material purity.

In 2010, he won first prize in the Dressed Stone design competition promoted by Antonio Lupi and Marmotech Carrara. This event marked the beginning of his collaboration with Antonio Lupi. His designs are inspired by solutions developed for the domestic environment, which represent a major part of the studio’s commissions.

His other awards include the Chicago Atheneaum of Design Good Design Award in 2012 for CTline made for Boffi; in 2013, the Interior Innovation Award Imm Koln for Mamba made for MDF Italia and the ADI Design Index for CTline made for Boffi; and in 2014, the Interior Innovation Award Imm Koln for Flaps made for Antrax.

He created the floor lamp Superluna in 2015 for the Italian brand Oluce, available in our e-shop.
