ESENINS is a creative team aimed at results
In 2018, we, brother and sister Mikhail and Kristina Esenin, created our own design studio ESENINS. At that time, both of us already had extensive experience in commercial projects — Kristina worked on Mercure hotels in Kaliningrad and Saransk, Radisson in Rostov and the restaurants like Salumeria, Remy Kitchen Bakery, and Voronezh in Moscow (in cooperation with S+S design studio), Mikhail was the part of the team working on Grand Hotel Zvezda (in cooperation with the design studio DK-Studio), and had 6 years of experience in the production of soft and cabinet furniture for public interiors (including the OTTO STELLE furniture factory).
Having thoroughly learned the specifics of commercial projects by cooperating with various companies, we have gained tremendous experience that can be multiplied in our work and transferred to new team members. At the same time we continue to learn, honing the quality and skill of our work from year to year.
The main value of the ESENINS brand is responsibility to the customer and to ourselves. We are responsible for ensuring that the design meets all the marketing/sales purposes of your business. We know how to make your design beautiful and original, and how to "sell" it to your customers. We also value partnership, so we try to build relationships based on trust.
In the studio, we don’t just do our job — we sincerely love each project and are very enthusiastic about it. We find an individual approach to solving the problem and take into account the specifics of the space and your business.
The way we work
The design is developed from the concept, not from references. At the start, we get a general vision of the concept, analyze all incoming data about the value of the brand, the features of the building, as well as other customer wishes. After that, based on the information received, we form visual imagery. And then, keeping the dialogue with the customer, we turn the ideas into physical form — we bring them to life and get a result accessible for the audience.
The result you’ll get
Skillfully combining different styles, we create a space that induces incredible emotions and sensations. You get not just a beautiful picture: lighting, composition, color, materials, texture, ergonomics, technological and business processes — every detail is taken into account. The project documentation is written in a simple and concise language that is understandable to both engineers and builders while our participation in the project implementation helps to easily bring it to life with precision to the smallest details.
We never stop and are constantly improving
In addition, we gain experience in related areas (fire requirements and regulations, landscaping, ventilation requirements, etc.) and work with various manufacturers. We improve our competencies by learning lighting design from leading Russian specialists. We visit specialized exhibitions and other events, keep in touch with leading companies that are innovators in technology development and apply these technologies in practice.
We are part of a large society and can get advice on a significant range of issues related to our activities from leading players in the field of design.
More than a design studio
Now, we are also actively engaged in teaching and educational activities: we are lecturers of the Russian Academy of Design (RAD), which currently has no analogues on the Russian market, and participate in conferences and business events throughout Russia. As speakers, we take part in various thematic design events, for example, together with the company Aledo we participated in a discussion on restaurant lighting. In 2020, we were participants of the Batimat exhibition where we had our own stand.
Kristina completed a course at the RMA business school on ‘Restaurant Business Management', and in 2021 was a guest speaker and teacher at the same school.
We are interested in making a viable project that will ‘live' for a long time, bring profit to our client and joy to the guests. Having implemented a project, we continue to supervise it, suggest new ideas and killer features to improve it and attract an even larger audience.
We sincerely love our projects!
