About

Studio laVina is a research and design studio focused on sustainability and well-being. The studio was founded by Polina Baikina - a former economist, turned designer. After quitting her job at Gazprom, she went to study at Parsons, New York and graduated from the Design Academy Eindhoven in 2019. With her studio Polina works on art installations and interior pieces in conjunction with the circular economy principles and sustainable materials.

We believe that research is a foundation of every strong project, and we tailor it to suit every task: we sometimes begin to work with material research and experimentation to find the best solution for a product, while in the case with innovations - the starting point is human behaviour. We analyse current trends and socio-cultural context to create a strategy for products and services that would stay relevant in the future.

We are driven by nature and technology, getting inspiration in both worlds, that we believe are merging into one.
