“Create like you are whispering” says Yury Ryntovt, a modern classic of Ukrainian design. How he reflects this rule in objects you can see in the International Exhibition Interior Mebel which takes place on November 7-10 in the International Exhibition Center on Brovarskiy Avenue in Kyiv.
Recently Yuriy Ryntovt have taken part in the collective exposition Ukrainian Design: Between Traditions and Innovations. During Dutch Design Week in Eindhoven team of designers has presented their projects which connect traditional materials and craftsmanship with high technologies. The table and the bench by Ryntovt Design made a fuss among international visitors of the hall. People asked how it was created and tried to absorb details from different angles, even creeped under the table to look closer to the connections. They made assumptions whether it was created on 3D printer or maybe the picture on the surface is a high quality print. Objects were bought during the exhibition and remained in Holland after all.
Noticeable success among the international audience relives an old question about Ukrainian design. What does it look like? Does it exist? It seems so. If Ukrainian design looks like design by Ryntovt it is complicated and honest, calm and respectful, exquisite in its quality and sophisticated, tactile and has a great admiration of the traditions.
Design by Yuriy Ryntovt is like music by DahaBraha. The musical band with their remarkable authentic sound were invited to famous Glastonbury festival, they performed to the BBC studio, their songs we can recognize in the Fargo TV-series and in the advertising of a new сosmetics brand by David Beckham. World musical listeners respect the original sound which is integrated into the modern context and is played on a great professional level. You can achieve it only by concentration, passion and years of practice.
