Concept Surgeon Top 10 | #9 Ilyas Darakchiev

Easily part of our top 10 entries, designer Ilyas Darakchiev always has an interesting perspective when it comes to his concepts. Whether it’s “Air Lacing” or his “Heat Foil” concept, Ilyas doesn’t just deign aesthetically interesting concepts, he actually creates engineered products that have innovative functionality built into them.

His submission to the ConceptSurgeon competition embodied both the techy ACRONYM DNA, but also the clean and minimal aesthetics of Hender Scheme. I also appreciated that he utilised a zipper in a slightly different manner than most. It also goes without saying that the renderings for this were pretty rediculous.

You can see more of Ilyas’ ConceptSurgeon entry, from sketch to final renderings, below.
