Zarya is an interdisciplinary designer and artist with a wide range of experience in the field of architecture, spatial and set design. This broad spectrum has allowed her to create, think and build in a variety of scales, typologies and clients. She has studied architecture and interior design, completing her MA at the Royal College of Art in London. During her course, she was selected as an exchange student with Kyoto City University of the Arts and spent a term in Japan, where she researched design for education, while exploring vernacular and sustainable building techniques in architecture, such as rammed earth and clay. Her final project for a new ceramics school on the grounds of the host university in Kyoto was awarded distinction upon graduation at the RCA and exhibited in multiple shows.
Zarya is always thrilled for exchange of ideas with diverse disciplines and curious of innovative and sustainable methods, materials and technologies. She enjoys engaging with projects that have a cultural, social and educational impact. As a designer, she is encouraged to create narrative environments that are able to conceive processes, tell stories and provoke interactions. Zarya is a firm believer in the power of design, education and performance and her work aims to marry those worlds with a holistic approach. Previously, she has worked as an exhibition designer, developing educational and interactive installations and experiences in the UK and abroad.
Her passion for culture and performance arts brought her to STUFISH in 2018, where she continues to nurture her interest for designing sense-stimulating and thought-provoking environments all around the world. Collaborating with a broad spectrum of creatives from the entertainment industry and being part of the vibrant and talented Stufish team is one of the things she cherishes the most. Zarya has been involved in numerous projects from the very early creative phase all the way through to construction. Some of those include Madonna – Madame X Tour 2019, Hugh Jackman – The Man, The Music 2019, The Show, Pink Floyd – TMR 2018, Elton John – Yellow Brick Road 2022-3, ABBA Voyage, Global Citizen, River Show, Weekends with Adele at the Colosseum 2022, The Platinum Jubilee 2022, Black Pink at Coachella, The Coronation Concert 2023,
