A discussion with Studio AHEAD, a vernacular-bending interior design collective led by founders Homan Rajai and Elena Dendiberia. The Bay Area-based team has a clear vision: to embrace interior design as an untapped platform for local Northern California artists and maker collaboration, not as theatre but rather, an organic expression of heritage in all forms. Homan and Elena embrace their blend of Persian and Russian heritage with time abroad in Kenya and Mexico to formulate a multicultural approach to design in San Francisco. Their enlightened philosophy is cemented in their collective desire to respect the many aspects of the region’s diversity through thoughtful, custom design.
Shapes of Power is a series of discussions hosted by Landscape, a boutique brand strategy and design studio shaping structure and surface in service of social good. In candid conversation with some of the studio’s most inspiring clients and collaborators, the program is an opportunity to explore how power manifests across a variety of disciplines.
In partnership with San Francisco Design Week.
Moderated by Adam Weiss, Founder and Creative Director at Landscape.
