The very beginning is to set up the account provided by HelEn and define the type of the house, its main areas and consumption details, unless it was stated before while using HelEn as a service provider. In that case after logging in all the data is transferred automatically. Depending on the type of electricity contract, maintenance needs and house group further steps are totally individual.
HOME EXPERT VIEW
As a supportive service from HelEn side there is always an expert involved. A specialist gives a hand on assessing home condition, forecasting possible risks and getting on with routine maintenance.
HOME REPORT VIEW The expertâ€™s report has a priceless sum up of the general house condition and list of actions need to be taken further, as well as where to get maintenance service in case of emergency.

Gus khrustalniy, glass factory in Russia
Gus-Hrustalniy is famous as the center of glass industry. On the whole economics of this place is based on production of crystal, and the town got this name because of it (Hrustalniy means crystal). In 1756 in the village, out of which the town grew, merchants Maltsevs founded the plant in production of glass. At that time almost all inhabitants worked in it. Then in the middle of XIX century a textile factory is founded. There was also established themuseum of crystall where one can see thing, made both of crystal and stained glass including so called “maltsev” vases, which are produced by special technology, known only to the officials of the plant. Its peculiarity – all things are made with use of two-or three-layered crystal with etching.

Finnish start-up company Nordic hug: creating roll-ups, exhibition structures and visual elements for the web
It's not the virtual viruses you should be worried about. Bacteria and other infectious agents on your touch screen can cause flu, pink eye or diarrhea.
A remarkable breakthrough for keeping your touch screen crystal clean and germ free: Nordic Hug Arctic Berry Formula
INNOVATION FROM FINLAND

INDUSTRIAL AND FURNITURE DESIGN
PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT PROJECT A CHALLENGING MULTIDISCIPLINARY COURSE IN COLLABORATION WITH FINNISH COMPANIES.
The task from the sponsoring company included developing of a product using Nordic Hug innovative formula for cleaning and desinfecting touch screen devices.
In a particular team-project I participated as a chief designer, who was in charge of all the design related matters: visuals, sketching, concept developent, rendering, presentation design and layout, final exhibition design and assembling of the stand.
INDUSTRIAL DESIGN PEPELKUS PUBLIC ASHTRAY
Task: to design a convinient to use and reasonable to produce outdoor cigarette receptacle. Pepelkus outdoor cigarette receptical can be mounted on any street pole, won’t be mistaken for a regular garbage container, and empties easily. Pepelkus is designed to be made of sheet metal and doesn’t call for a particular thickness—leaving a manufacturer some freedom—as long as the construction is strong enough to withstand the elements. The assembly method is also not mandatory: choose spot-welding or rivets. Pepelkus mounts to poles with a standard screw clamp.
The receptacle is mostly enclosed to ensure any still-lit cigarette butts stop burning out of oxygen deprivation. The bottom of the Pepelkus has a magnetic trap door that opens with a minimal effort to empty the containerâ€™s contents into a collection bag.
This project was made for the Asus company contest. The request was to design a set of accessories to the new version of Asus EEE PC Seashell laptop designed by Karim Rashid. My strategy was to make not only fashion accessories, but apply as much functionality to the objects as possible. Another goal was to make these accessories fashionable enough, matching to the laptop’s style and in general the set that would fulfil ‘fashionistas’ target group needs.
ASUS SET OF ACCESSORIES FOR EEE PC KARIM RASHID EDITION

Clip-on memory stick was made with an only aim to stop losing your memory stick everywhere, the solution was to make it able to clip to your cloth or pocket as a brooch and always have it close to you.
This eaprhones case is considered to be a great solution for tangled cords. The idea is that inside the curvy case the reel is hidden which retracts the cord when itâ€™s out of use. The pattern and colours of the device are conditioned by the style of the laptop.
To solve the size issues of laptop chargers and make it more compact and convenient in use I redesigned the traditional charger and made the plug detachable and put the reel inside to retract the cord.
Compact laptop mouse has the same feature as the adjustable charger – to retract the cord and thus decrease the space taken by the mouse in the bag.
Asus laptop doesn’t have a common Kensington lock but the problem of locking was crucial for the Asus and this lock has an aim to solve the problem by using the space usually used for USB or VGA cable, the idea was a construction which moves side parts to the opposite directions and presses them to the inner sides of the laptop’s cable slot by the rotation of the small key.
HUGO CHAIR Hugo chair recalls minimalistic features and Scandinavian style. The idea behind was to make emotional, simple and functional object, meeting the needs of people in public spaces like cafes or exhibitions, where you can seat and have a rest with comfort both for you and your belongings. The special gap between the seat and the armrest allows to keep your bag close to you decreasing the glory of pickpockets and leaving it clean and tidy even in the dusty streets and spaces. Stackable design gives the owner more storage space and freedom, still making the day brighter with its eye-catching colours.

FLO ADDITIONAL TABLE Flo table mostly refers to emotional design. One of its leg is made of transparent glass, in a shape of a vase, which encloses function and pleasant aesthetic and the rest is made of wood of various types with very sleek connection between the top surface and the legs. It’s supposed to be used as a separated table which can be brought to bed or the additional piece of furniture over your common work space.

SWING STOOL The Swing stool was designed to totally change the emotions the user feels when sits on an ordinary stool. Working on this project I gave up traditional methods and designed not only functional but entertaining object. Designed for DesignZavod company Material: Molded plastic, Metal tubes
My photography experience was based mostly on self-initiated projects and inspiration from all the possible sources. I prefer to work in minimalistic and conceptual style as I strongly believe that by means of right composition and colours a static image can show much more than a shot overloaded with objects and information.
B&W photo is my personal obsession and this field seems to me the most complicated as you always need to balance on the edge of tones and shades.
