Mammad Aliabadian

Mammad Aliabadian, an Iranian born Danish designer, was educated as a Stage Set Production Manager from The National School of Theatre in Denmark.  

“The dynamics of the theatre reflect the stage where ordinary people live. The purpose of design is to create function while making life more beautiful on every stage.”

His source of inspiration comes from the ancient and proud Persian culture along with his love for the aesthetics and humour of the Danish design.

“I have been fortunate to travel to many parts of the world, both the East and West. I derive my outlook on life and the composition of form from a traveller’s perspective. Maybe I have been a nav longer than I realise. My move to Shanghai working for NAV Scandinavia is a natural expansion of perspective after a 15-year career in theatre in Denmark.”
