Longlisted for Dezeen Awards 2021 emerging design studio of the year, FAINA is a collection of live objects by Yakusha rooted in rich Ukrainian cultural heritage.
With a mission to pass the story, they link a sustainable approach to modern living with ancient crafts and traditions.
Following FAINA's philosophy of live design, furniture, decor, and lighting are released only two times per year — during Winter and Summer solstice, days of natural renewal. Handcrafted in collaboration with local artisans, objects show the richness of live materials — clay, wood, willow vine or "ztista" — sustainable blend developed by FAINA.
A design expedition is FAINA's unique project to protect endangered crafts.
