Olena Sydoruk Won The 2011 Golden a' Design Award Winner in The Arts, Crafts and Ready-made Design Category, With Her Flow Coffee Table & Stools

Ukrainian and now living in the USA, Olena Sydoruk is graduated in art from the Rivne State University, Ukraine and in product design, from the CCS (College for Creative Studies) in Detroit, USA. She entered and won the competition in the Arts, Craft and ready-made design category with her Flow Coffee Table & Stools.The furniture set was inspired by natural wood grain patterns and conceived as lightweight stools that can also be used as side tables, foot stools or laptop tables. The simple yet complicated design created a harmonious balance of functionality and style. Each part of the set is original with its unique asymmetrical design but positioned together, the effect becomes dramatic. Her style is a combination of aesthetical attraction and functionality and she enjoys playing with organic lines and geometric forms. “I love creating playful and fun designs that interact with the user, creating a physical and emotional experience with everyday objects. My approach is intuitive and sensory, with concern on how the user will experience the object and how the object will add value to the space.” She takes her inspiration from nature and its harmonious balance of beauty and functionality. “Nature is the never-ending source of inspiration. “ She is also inspired by opposites that complement each other, interacting with each other, such as salt and pepper, black and white, etc. Applied to design, she plays with warm and cold materials, shiny and mate surfaces, chromatic and achromatic color pallet, lighting, textures, creating an eclectic mix of styles and functions. In the same way, she tries to build a relationship between herself as the designer and the product, between the product and user, and between the product and environment. “Design is a balanced blend of form and function, without this combination the design is meaningless.”Olena Sydoruk participated to several exhibitions in Ukraine and the United States. Her works can be viewed on several websites such as Coroflot, Fine Art America, etc. She can be contatted at: sydoruk.design@gmail.com Exerpt:Ukrainian and now living in the USA, Olena Sydoruk is graduated in art from the Rivne State University, Ukraine and in product design, from the CCS (College for Creative Studies) in Detroit, USA.
