RUDA Studio founder and designer Alexandra Rudenko is inspired by nature and Ukrainian cultural heritage. “Our pieces are about returning to the origins. We strive to restore the value of handicrafts and distinctive products. Straw is a traditional material in Ukraine. Combining functionality with aesthetics, we consider straw as a unique material for exclusive pieces” says Alexandra Rudenko.

The Solomia Straw Marquetry Coffee Table balances the philosophy of contemporary design and vintage art deco. Seemingly trapped between past and future, the table became an example of a timeless object. The origin of the object begins in Western Ukraine, where 80-year-old grandfather Orestes collects straw. He carefully sorts the straws by length and diameter. In the RUDA Studio workshop, the straw goes through a staining stage. After that craftsmen inlay solid oak base with rye straw ornaments. For handmade edging, hardware, and the accent shiny circle is used brass.

RUDA Studio researches folk artisans’ techniques and brings the ancient straw marquetry to contemporary use. Towards the modern sustainable luxury, RUDA Studio evolves handcrafted traditions and uses native natural materials. Furthermore, created pieces actualize current issues of the harmony of humans and nature.
