Mina Lisanin is an interior designer based in New York City.
Her passion for seeking hands on experience in all aspects of the interior design business led her to many different internships, ranging from textile design at Carnegie Fabrics, to dipping her toes into real estate development at Kar Properties, to residential design with celebrity designer Vanessa Deleon to staging multi million dollar apartments with IMG. Upon graduating from FIT, her versatile background in design landed her a job at Gensler, one of the top architecture and design firms in the world.
In 2020, at the start of the global pandemic, she decided to take a scary time and turn it into a a positive one. As a form of distraction from what was going on in the world around her, Mina used her creative and curious nature to dip her toes into product design, something she did not know much about. What had started as a few sketches at home, quickly turned into a pivotal moment in her design career.
Since 2020, Mina has received many international design awards for her product designs including Paris Design Award 2021, A' Design Award 2021, European Product Design Award 2020 and 2021, Muse Design Award 2021, SIT Furniture Design Award 2020 and more.
Her work has been featured in 201 Home Magazine, Daily Mail UK, NKBA, European Product Design Award Book 2020 and 2021, SIT Furniture Design Award Book 2020, and A' Design Award Book 2021.
Being selected as one of the designers for ICFF and Wanted Design Launch Pad is a dream come true for Mina and she can't wait to see what the future has in store.
