Svoi lamp is an essence of author's reflection about how nature tends sometimes to a continuous repetitive form. Some plants, especially these south succulent ones, have their branches paralelly grown, others really look like ready patterns. Slavic designers used this forms broadly since ancient times, what is notable in early examples of everyday objects decoration from southern zones of Russia. Svoi can be translated from russian as “ours'”; the form of lighting object that seems rather familiar and at the same time surprisingly gorgeous. To show the Svoi's real nature character a short promo video was shot in a deep russian forest ambience with a participation of some look like people. It reveals some ancient pagan Ivan-Kupala traditions like dancing in the forest and complete with all nature elaments. In Svoi ceramics really hugs the wooden elements and makes the tree story goes on so far in a single pendant lamp of russian designer Yaroslav Misonzhnikov.

These winter’s evenings for us – the cold that you feel working with computer or textbooks in an immovable state for hours. And of course isn’t not always comfortable to cover yourself with a blanket or wearing an extra sweater. The designer from St.Petersburg Yaroslav Misonzhnikov worked out the universal system of plaid for chairs. Two stripes of felt could be attached to a chair by press-buttons.
With a light stir a man slips on his shoulders a strip, then another one. The plaid isn’t strengthened, so it permits a man move. The system was called “+”, because in a working state it reminds the positive sign. In some way the plaid also reminds an eastern kimono. It’s then proposed the worked out project would be used for different kinds of chairs. The project was presented as a part of the exposition of a design school “ArtFuture” at the furniture exhibition ICFF opened 15th of May in New York.
