A workshop of Ukrainian design and architecture Sergey Makhno Architects in collaboration with a couture design studio Kofta has created a collection of furniture and accessories OBITOVANA 5019. This project has become their eco-manifesto and contemplation about what our future can be like.
“Collaboration with Kofta is an attempt to taste the postfuturism. We are telling the story about the mode of life after the future. OBITOVANA 5019 is our dream to be part of building the world we want to have, not the one we are predicted”, — shares Sergey Makhno, the architect and founder of Sergey Makhno Architects.
The collection consists of a table without a tabletop, a cold floor lamp and a warm one, a sofa-shell, a carpet-puzzle, and two flourishing bags-flowers. Every item is made in a single copy only. And every item has its own story. The names of the products are the names of butterflies that have gone extinct, rivers that have dried away, glaciers that have melted, islands that are drowning, and flowers that will never bloom again. In a new world, they will be alive again.
