                                Ukraine&#8217;s design scene opened its doors to a group of journalists and design experts for the very first time in an expedition organized by Victoria Yakusha of <a href="http://faina.design/en"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">FAINA</a> collection. Yakusha invited Roberto Baciocchi, legendary architect for Prada&#8217;s stores and an interior designer and art curator; Anna Lina Leno of <a href="https://annaleena.se/studio"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Annaleena Studio</a>; Madeline Asplund of <a href="http://asplundklingstedtinterior.se/"  rel="noopener external noreferrer" data-wpel-link="external">Asplund Klingsted Interior</a>; and Laura Snood of <em>ICON Magazine</em>, to experience the unique technologies used to make crafts in the Ukrainian countryside.

Ukraine Design Expedition

“While talking to my European colleagues at professional exhibitions in Milan, Paris, London and Stockholm, I realized how little they know about Ukraine and absolutely do not understand who we are. At the same time, I heard many times about the interest in booming Ukrainian contemporary design, as of something new that could soon set global trends,” Yakusha said.

Yakusha worried that these techniques were not being passed down,

Tulipe, 2018

Installation, Brian Rochefort “2030” at Van Doren Waxter, New York

Rochefort’s process involves firing, glazing, breaking, rebuilding, and RE-glazing ceramic vessels multiple times until, in his words: “as many glazes as possible until I can’t fire anymore.”

A distinct visual element of Rochefort’s work (beyond the chaos of glaze layers) is a smooth color gradient on each vessel, achieved with an airbrush on one of the final layers. Also worth noticing are the globs or streams of melted glass that drip down a few of the craggled forms.

Born in 1985, Brian Rochefort grew up in Rhode Island and attended the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) before moving to Los Angeles where he

The box contains six beautifully crafted objects, each of which was designed exclusively and produced in a limited edition.

The idea for the box was conceived out of a desire to celebrate the moment of moving into a new home that would go beyond a bottle of champagne or a bouquet of flowers. The Modern House, known for their roster of inspiring modern living spaces, wanted an array of objects that would be more meaningful and longer-lasting.

Faye Toogood explains, “The Modern House appeals to a particular type of homebuyer, but within that audience there are people who actually have quite different tastes. We wanted these objects to enrich any home, so we kept all the pieces very pure and elemental. The materials we’ve used aren’t up for discussion or judgement because

                                For his final project at the Royal College of Art in London, graduate student <a href="http://schenkmischke.com/" data-wpel-link="external"  rel="external noopener noreferrer">Philipp Schenk-Mischke</a> designed a set of ceramic vases and a small collection of furniture pieces that blur the lines between everyday objects and conceptual furniture. Collectively, the project is called &#8220;Process Plug-Ins.&#8221;

With BTM Ceramics, Schenk-Mischke wanted to experiment in reinterpreting classic object types by analyzing the way they’re made or used. While most ceramics are left alone to dry once they have taken form, Schenk-Mischke distorts his ceramics but placing them on a body vibration plate (the same kind used in the fitness industry) that gently shakes and vibrates the formed pieces into more organic shapes. By introducing this plug-in (defined as a component that’s designed to enhance a process or system by adding an extra feature or function), Schenk-Mischke changes pre-conceived notions about how a certain process is “supposed” to be.
