Vadim Kibardin grew up in Omsk, Russia and graduated from the Ural State Academy of Architecture and Art’s Industrial Design Department, Ekaterinburg in 1996.
In 2000 Vadim established KIBARDINDESIGN studio. He has been involved in the design of a range of different products, from consumer electronics, furniture, and interior settings to film sets. Since 2005 Vadim Kibardin has been living in Prague, where his Kibardindesign studio started production of his own trademarked goods which have been selling worldwide.
Kibardin’s approach to design emphasizes both innovation and functionality. He takes the minimalist philosophy of stripping an object to its essentials to a completely new level. By exploring new ideas, materials and technologies, and executing them well, Kibardin’s work is highly artistic, smart and always inspiring.
The most striking examples of projects by Vadim Kibardin have won the most prestigious international design awards such as “iF product Design Award” and “Red Dot Design Award”, “Promosedia International Design Competition”, “Design and Design”, and “Charman design competition”.
Vadim Kibardin was nominated in the Design section of the 2013 World Technology Awards. These award finalists and nominees are those individuals (in 20 categories) and companies/organizations (in 10 categories) who are—in the opinion of the WTN fellows and founding members, through the awards voting process—producing innovative work of “the greatest likely long-term significance” in their fields. They are those creating the 21st century.
According to Wallpaper magazine, Vadim is in the list of 40 designers “who will change the world”, along with Jonathan Eve, Ora Ito, John Maeda, the Bouroullec brothers and other professionals under age 50.
Ross Lovegrove said that Vadim Kibardin opened his eyes on Russian design. Vadim was the only designer to be given the German Chancellor’s grant in the area of industrial design. He has organized and participated in more than 20 personal and group exhibitions.
Vadim Kibardin is an inventor, author, scientist, and artisan. His designs bring about a positive social impact, materialize an ideology, and trigger specific human behavior. Most of his time is spent looking for materials or technologies that define the future of humanity.
