When Harry Nuriev’s Minimalism Finds a Twist of Color…

Let’s be inspired by the amazing wonderland where pink plexiglass meets blue vinyl.

Thirty-three year old Harry Nuriev is currently an important figure in the new wave of the group of youngish talents. His aesthetic, you might say, fits in with the global minimalism trend. Harry is the founder, artist, and architect of Crosby studios in New York and Moscow, and for the past years, he has been working with both residential and hospitality projects, where he designs not only the interior but also all the individual furniture and art objects that go with the interiors.

That chandelier overhead in Harry Nureyev’s kitchen, It’s made from 300-ish Bic pens that he carefully unscrewed, one by one, to remove the ink inside, leaving the clear cylindrical tubes and blue caps to dangle from a ring-like crystal.
