Julia and Yevhen Melnychenko are Ukrainian designers whose work embodies ideas of naturalness, sustainability, and timelessness. They regularly present the creative essence of their collections at world-renowned exhibitions such as Maison & Objet, Decorex, DDW, Paper Inside, Contemporania, Revelations, and more.

A distinctive feature of Julia and Yevhen's work is their innovative desire to experiment with biomaterials, seeking forms and textures that tease and deceive the viewer. Many of her objects, feminine, warm and natural, Julia creates with her own hands, skillfully combining handicrafts with new technologies.

“For us, design is like an ongoing adventure—a journey of constant experimentation, exploration, and discovery. We thrive in the absence of a fixed state; it keeps us on our toes, perpetually evolving. But what truly excites us is the ability to craft beauty with purpose—a seamless blend of aesthetics and functionality. Design, you see, isn’t just about aesthetics; it’s therapeutic. It has this remarkable power to heal, energise, and restore.”

In the vision of the artists, it is easy to read their soft but strong nature, one that avoids breaks, straight angles, shadows, and ambiguity. 

Projecting the future through the prism of the past, Yulia and Yevhen believe true design is about creating meanings, stories, and emotions that remain in people's hearts with each object. Therefore, they approach each new object with respect for the past, responsibility for the future, and endless love for the art of creating light.
