Design brand RUDA Studio was founded in 2017 by Alexandra Rudenko and Yuriy Vovnyanko. The main focus
of the studio — space design and the creation of unique household items. In the space, the studio seeks to make each project individual and special, focusing on feelings, custom items, and the combination of the historical and the modern.
The created objects are inspired by natural materials and antique artisan techniques. Each product has its function, but more resembles an object of art that touches the soul and pushes for reflection and rethinking of our cultural heritage. In their works, the designers of the studio restore the knowledge of Ukrainian folklore and actualize socially-important environmental topics, conservation of natural resources of the Earth, and human interaction with nature.
In the studio, objects are created from local materials - brass, copper, clay, straw, algae, trees, and stone.
