Inspired by the Soviet upbringing, Uliana Lomsinko explores shapes and forms to create modern objects for the home. "We were experiencing the biggest changes in our country: the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the revolutions of 1989 in Eastern Europe and the end of the Cold War. The Soviet past was slowly dissolving, leaving behind the biggest cultural treasures. It was the beginning of my fascination with Brutalist architecture - understated, utopian buildings constructed in wide-open landscapes, like installations from outer space. Growing up in Siberia at the times of Perestroika I took great inspiration from the cold conifer woods dotted with birch trees, wild tundra and turf lands. The monochrome winter landscapes, quiet repetitive nature and graphic lines of River Ob, trained my eye to be attentive to harmonic shapes. The duality of influences of our past helped to define core materials: concrete for its raw, unpretentious honesty and wood for its lightness and flexibility". Sesstra is the culmination of their personal experience juxtaposed with the Soviet past and modern future.
