Exposition of the Ukrainian industrial designers and artists on PDW 2017
This year the design team from Ukraine will present the project “Transformation” at two locations: Les Docks, Cité de la Mode et du Design and Ukrainian Cultural Centre in Paris.
Now! Le Off – Les Docks: 9-13 September http://www.maison-objet.com/fr/paris-design-week/quartiers/now-le-off-les-docks
Ukrainian Cultural Centre: 8-13 September (22, Avenue de Messine) http://culture-ukraine.com/fr/
Each year the design changes the surface of objects and strives for its outstanding appearance. Or, on the contrary, tends to simplify and tries to find the perfect form that is free of redundancy.
The purpose of the exposition is to demonstrate the ability of objects to transform space and consciousness. There are objects that have a transformation function. Exhibits may be for the specific domestic use or be just accessories that create and transform the atmosphere in which people not only exist and operate but “live” and feel all the colours of material and spiritual life.
The architect Sergey Makhno and his studio Sergey Makhno Architects presents a collection of items “Transformation of silence» (lamps, furniture, decorations). The central elements of the exposition by the studio Sergey Makhno Architects will be two winners of the Red Dot Design Award – concrete tile Tetrapod and multifunctional tile Flapjack, in which the designers embodied the concept of “recycling”.
