Solomia Coffee Tables
RUDA is a multidisciplinary Ukrainian design studio, founded by Oleksandra Rudenko and Yuriy Vovnyanko in Odesa. Their primary artistic focus is the creation of unique furniture and interior design objects blending folk traditions with contemporary aesthetics. RUDA prides itself on effectively incorporating emotional complexity into its physical works, creating visual stories that enliven and enrich any interior. Traditional Ukrainian marquetry techniques are integral to this effort, both revitalizing a process of cultural pride and creating exceptional handcrafted art.
“Our projects are about returning to the origins. We strive to restore the value of handicrafts and individual products. In our subjects we update the topics of conservation of the Earth’s natural resources and human interaction with nature,” says the studio’s founder, Aleksandra Rudenko.
Marquetry is an ancient technique of wood inlays used to create visual stories and details on the surfaces of furniture and objects. Essentially a creation of “wood mosaics,” detailed marquetry took Western Europe by storm in the 17th century. But the origins of this practice lie in Eastern Europe, specifically in modern-day Ukraine. RUDA is dedicated to revitalizing the original practice and thereby inspiring a new generation to invest in artisan works.
Straw is a traditional Ukrainian material that has essentially inspired RUDA’s designs. Find the texture of straw (and the real thing) incorporated into the marquetry of these groundbreaking pieces.
