Lamp of natural cotton rope
Vasiliy Butenko's "Acorn" lamp series takes the use of cotton rope to a new level. A collector's piece, this objet d'Art incorporates simplistic with nothing more than natural materials put to use in a new and unique way.
Cotton rope is a simple but quite interesting and pleasant material. The majority of objects crafted with the use of the rope are woven, which makes the object manufacturing process more complicated. Vasiliy's intention was to create an utmost simple and modern object avoiding the use of complicated weaving techniques.
In order to create volume of the lamp shade, Vasiliy used a bottle to give it its shape. Having bonded all the layers, he created a compact, light and neat illuminator shape without a frame.
Given that the shape is very simple, he took every detail into consideration by incorporating LED bulbs to provide integral and concentrated light, enabling efficient lighting.
The lamp gains its strength by bonding together the cotton rope to create a shade that has no frame.
Table mat "nest"
The table mat is made of heat resistant silicone that withstands temperatures from -50 to +270. This material is completely non-toxic and can easily be applied in everyday life. The table mat can be easily washed under running water or in a dishwasher. The material is very tenacious, that provides tight integration with utensils and does not allow it to go along the surface. Thus, this mat has a long service life without losing its original appearance and properties.
The objective of any designer, as well as of any other occupation related to the emotional enrichment of society is to help people to disclose their feelings hidden from the outside world and available only to close people. Creating objects and spaces, I want to inform people that the world may be aesthetically rich and beautiful and people can be a part of this world. I hope that sooner or later everyone will have goods created by designers or architects. Otherwise these occupations lose their meaning creating objects only for a few people.
