Aleks/xandra Gromchenko

Product & Interior Maker. On steroids.
 
About me

Ambitious creative thinker with more than 10 years in the interior & furniture manufacturing industry with experience managing a complete project cycle.


Extremely curious and eager to learn, an engineer invented and patented a unique rocking chair, launched a start-up company as a co-founder, and participated in a launch of a tech start-up within Yandex as a senior designer.


Empathic interior designer able to execute a design project from scratch. A deep understanding of materials and technologies allows me not to be limited by current market offers because I do know how to manufacture anything.

My Portfolio

I believe in two things.

  1. Empathy is the cornerstone of any successful design project.
  2. Everything is possible.
Products and technologies

Having worked with an innovative custom furniture manufacturer (kvadrattruba) and been a Head of Manufacturing (murky.objects) I was fulfilling my true passion - exploring materials and technologies.
