Villasufia also selected as the Best Luxury Design Studio in Iran by Luxury Life Style Award in New York in 2021.

His goal is to build bridges between different cultures with his art.

The main point for him is the passion for the original design which creates a new line every time, makes each of his projects look varied. He finds his style as “flexibility and variety in design” at the cost of risking or even challenging new ways.

Due to the fact that he’d like to advance the design category, and also his belief in collective wisdom, he puts a lot of energy into teamwork.

Over the last 15 years, he has spent his time teaching, writing, translating, and producing cultural content and he guesses that’s why he has such a feeling of appreciation and admiration for the concept of design.

He has neither been satisfied with a particular style in design in general nor spent his time designing a specific type of object; he'd rather choose a particular path according to the design space.

Being able to create with a variety of materials such as fiber, wood, metal in line with modern technology like 3D printing, he can design and produce all interior objects including furniture, chandeliers, carpets, wallpaper, pianos, billiard tables, etc., not needing ready-made ones, which allow him to have no design restrictions.

He believes: “As Iranians, we have inherited a treasure trove of patterns, designs, and shapes with ancient history that can inspire us in contemporary design. There are not only the patterns on our carpets but also a variety of geometries in traditional architecture such as the Mogharnas on the ceilings of mosques and palaces, flowers and inscriptions on tiles, colors, and motifs from our ancestors in addition to handicrafts such as inlay work, enamel work, mosaic work, mirror work, and engraving that create an opportunity to be updated and marketed internationally.
