Ukrainian design brands vol.3 at Maison & Objet international furniture, design and décor exhibition (September 2019, Paris)
For the third time already, another five Ukrainian brands will meet at Maison & Objet, one of Europe’s largest and most authoritative interior design and decoration items exhibitions. DONNA furniture studio with their BORBOLETA designer decorative panel and KONYKY soft modular puffs; Vahan Avakian with a new collection of vases and fixtures from their CORAL edition; ZEGEN, presenting two different interpretations of a contemporary desk; NEXT LEVEL LIGHTING studio, presenting a new series of wooden LED chandeliers; “newborn” SleepOnnn brand with a collection of furniture and textile for the children’s bedroom.
Maison & Objet and МОМ online platform are among the best possible places to introduce the global professional community with the most striking examples and potential of Ukrainian object design, that the world is only starting to discover.
Participation of Ukrainian creative brands in such commercial exhibitions as Maison & Objet makes the adaptation process of Ukrainian participants to the global market more sustainable. It is obvious that without exports, the ecosystem of Ukrainian design and creative entrepreneurship in this field cannot work efficiently.
The participants were competitively selected by an international jury. Selection was made by: Mr Didier Margueritte, interior designer and President of the European Association of Designers and Decorators; Vincent Roméo, founder of BLOG ESPRIT DESIGN, the beloved cult design blog; Jo Yana, founder of joyana.fr, Europe’s most stylish design blog; Aleksej Iskos, designer and founder of the Iskos-Berlin studio; Kostiantyn Kovshevatsky, editor-in-chief of PRAGMATIKA edition and a fine connoisseur of the artistic expression of a pragmatic approach to design; Anastasiia Biletska, creative director of Maïno Design Ukraine; Faina Ehrenburg, founder of Ukrainian brand DAVIS CASA and a tasteful trend-setter in design.
The project is being implemented with support of the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) and funded under The European Union’s EU4Business initiative.
