In Conversation with Marek Schubert
Studio Schubert is a small studio providing tailored interior designs to a range of private and commercial clients often including project management.
What inspired you to be an interior designer?
Since I was a little boy I was involved in many refurbishments and building projects. This developed into a passion as I truly enjoyed witnessing the improvements in people's lives caused by my work. Soon after, it became apparent that whatever I do, I want to be involved in the design and refurbishments as this job gives me joy and satisfaction no other work can give.
If they were to make a toy action figure of you, what would your accessory be?
Digger! So I can destroy and create at the touch of the button.
To what degree have you actually controlled the course your life within the design world has taken?
I planned to study interior design at University followed by work in residential interior design studio. This means that I have fully taken control over my carrier. It helped that I was already a mature student then and I knew exactly what I want to do.
What would be your dream interior project?
It would be either prefabricated interior produced for the mass market (eg. Ikea designed home) or bespoke, huge villa in the south of Europe, Italy or Greece preferably. It is worth to add that I am in love with small space design and I truly believe that we can solve our housing crisis with clever design.
What’s something you know you do differently than most people?
I run my life by chance rather than organised rigorous routine. I always go with the flow and follow the dream. I don't like the convention and repetition.
If you could go back in time and speak to your adolescent self, what advice would you give them about the design world?
Take things with a pinch of salt, worry about yourself and your clients and don't try to please everyone at all the time. Your design may not please everybody, as long as your client is happy there is nothing to worry about.
