ABOUT FAINAREAD MORE
The scent of wet soil, primitive, organic forms, the wild spirit of nature. Faina – brand of furniture, lighting, and decor; a sensual expression of contemporary design rooted in Mother Earth and Ukrainian heritage.
Founded in 2014, after the Revolution of Dignity, FAINA represents Ukrainian identity, culture and spirit. Evoking ancient symbols, reviving ancestral crafts, working with live, primeal materials. FAINA's live minimalist design explores a sense of belonging to earth and guides back to the essence.
The omen-like archetypal shapes of design pieces harbour an animistic presence. In the hands of local artisans, each object finds a living soul. Ukrainian history passed on in sustainable collections of live Ukrainian design.
"Like our ancestors, I believe in the spiritual essence of things, the souls of our objects. And it's one of the core elements of what we call live design — creating something that is alive. Something with a spirit", Victoria Yakusha.
SVITANOK / Ukrainian for “dawn” /
Dawn refers to the early hours of the morning when the sun is just beginning to rise above the horizon. It marks the transition from night to day. During dawn, the sky often displays a beautiful array of colors, such as shades of orange, yellow, pink, and blue, as the sun's rays scatter through the Earth's atmosphere. It is associated with a sense of renewal and hope as it heralds the start of a new day.
“The Ukrainian sky has incredible power and potential. For us, each dawn is a symbol of a new life and a new possibility to change ourselves and this world for the better.” — comments Victoria.View details
