Ukrainian object design is a young industry under development. The local Media started to talk about Ukrainian products about two years ago. Recently we can talk about noticeable development of Ukrainian object design.
CHIA kitchen was designed by FILD for ANOVA. It is a successful example of collaboration between Ukrainian producer and Ukrainian design studio. For the design environment in Ukraine it is a complete novelty when a manufacturer takes the initiative to engage a designer into the creative process.
FILD Design Company is based in Kiev and was founded by Dan Vakhrameyev and Kateryna Fedorenko. For the last two years, FILD™ is famous for designing and producing minimalist objects, décor and lighting, It is selling not only in Ukraine but also in European countries, America, Asia and even Australia. Therefore, the kitchen created is a recognizable style of the brand includes simplicity of design, monochrome, minimalist lines and shapes.
CHIA kitchen reflects the balance between technology and natural materials: wooden foundations are made of solid wood and plywood, for façade panels colored MDF was chosen, which is quite popular in Europe but is rarely used in Ukraine. For the wood treatment there is an option of natural oils usage and a varnish option for those who prefer more sustainable surface. For the kitchen tabletop the designers used high-tech laminates.
