Designer Gives Traditional Russian Folk Art A Contemporary Makeover

St. Petersburg-based product designer Yaroslav Misonzhnikov has created a beautifully crafted 'Katerina' vanity set which combines modern minimal forms with centuries-old traditional craft. 

'Katerina' comprised of a mirror, a comb and a lace fan, which is a collaboration with ‘Snejinka’, a renowned manufacturer of traditional lace in the Vologda region, as part of a unique project in which Russian product designers were paired with Russian manufacturers of traditional folk arts. The aim of this project was to revive or ‘reincarnate’ these traditional Russian folk arts and crafts, by reinterpreting them within a contemporary context.
