Nika Umnov

Hey there, I'm Nika! As a curious person by nature, I've explored all different fields of design, from exhibit to furniture to outdoor gear. I love the whole process of designing, and enjoy innovating on current processes, as well as learning new ones. My design philosophy is to create products that serve a greater purpose for the user, while not neglecting aesthetics and functionality.
