Vyksun Up!

Verkhneprudnaya st., next to building 1




Pole-Design is a design bureau. The artists behind the piece are Vlad Savinkin and Vladimir Kuzmin (Moscow).

The “Vyksun up!” installation on the dam of the Upper Pond in Vyksa is a place for performances, meetings, and contemplation.

The installation got its name from the Vyksun river. This large three-level structure sits on the dam line and combines the functions of a bench, a catwalk, and a stage. The mill used the Upper Pond as a water reservoir for industrial water intake. Today, it is a favorite place for walks and meetings for Vyksa residents.

The project was created by “Pole-Design” Design Studio that does business in Moscow and brings together architects, designers, artists, and exhibition designers, both professors and students, masters and apprentices. The studio's managing partners are Vladimir Kuzmin and Vladislav Slavkin.


"We saw extremely creative and active involvement from the authorities and residents alike, and were very happy that Oleg Shapiro's new curatorial team invited us to create this important object for Vyksa,"

— Vladimir Kuzmin said in an interview to archplatforma.ru
