During the Stockholm Furniture & Light Fair 2016 Tatiana Kudryavtseva introduce in the Greenhouse a selection of fifteen promising Russian designers and their twenty interior products that bring communication with nature into the daily life of city dwellers.

The products include such types as small furniture, lights, accessories, textiles and multifunctional objects. They were specially developed in a curated project with a task to focus on functional objects that will allow feeling connected to nature in a standard city apartment, without majorchanges in both interior planning and city lifestyle.

The results include objects for growing plants with convenience and high level of aestheticism, along with objects that work as a perfect set out for pieces of nature brought home to become a part of a nature lover’s collection. Small furniture, lights and accessories in such natural materials as birch bark, wicker, ceramics, porcelain, sandstone and marble continue the range. Finally, the row culminates with transformable vases, textiles capturing nature in hyperrealist prints with 3D effect, photochromic screens changing color depending on the amount of sunlight, and a bird feeder with an integrated speaker enhancing the sounds of songs of the pleased birds.

Designers were welcome to enjoy freedom of sources, expression, media and typology as long as the final object represents nature inside a city home and possesses the aesthetics and functionality of contemporary design. Inspirations varied from nature as such to nature on a planetary scale, relations of nature and architecture, traditional materials in a contemporary context and visual techniques for emotional unity with nature.
