Inspired by the wealth of Ukrainian land, we have created an interior object by RUDA Studio – the cabinet Solomia.
Seemingly trapped between the past and future, he became an example of a timeless object. It combines the stylization of vintage art deco and the philosophy of contemporary Ukrainian design. The cabinet was designed by studio founder and designer Oleksandra Rudenko.
It is made of oak and inlaid with ornaments from the rye straw. The origin of the cabinet begins in Western Ukraine, where 80-year-old grandfather Orestes collects straw for our products. He carefully sorts the straws by length and diameter. During this time, the basis of the cabinet is made – the oak frame. The countertop passes the stitching stage, where the texture of the wood appears. In our workshop, the straw goes through a staining stage, after which it is inlaid with the cabinet itself.
