PENDANT FOR PEACE
Six months on, the injustices and fight for the people of Ukraine continues as they courageously defend their land, freedom and identity.
To honour International Day of Peace and support our Ukrainian friends, Tigmi are donating a STRIKHA Pendant light by Ukrainian design brand FAINA (worth AUD $4,400) and offering you a chance to win it by taking part in our 'Pendant for Peace' raffle.
FAINA is a brand of live Ukrainian design founded by Ukrainian architect, designer and artist Victoria Yakusha in 2014 after the Revolution of Dignity. "I wanted to create something that represents Ukraine, our culture, our spirit," comments Victoria.
The brand's collections include furniture, lighting and decor that hold deep roots in Ukrainian cultural heritage. In its primitive designs, FAINA evokes ancient symbols, revives ancestral crafts and passes on the history of its land - the crucial elements of FAINA's 'live design' philosophy.
100% of the proceeds from the raffle will be donated to Victoria's nominated fund, the Maria Prymachenko Family Foundation, who are raising funds to protect and preserve the work of one of Ukraine's most celebrated artists after 25 of her works were burned as a result of Russia's invasion of Ukraine earlier this year.
"One of the projects I am currently working on is dedicated to Maria Prymachenko, a truly genius primitivist and one of my favourite artists. Her powerful compositions move, breathe, grow before our eyes and reveal the essence of all living things. A museum with works by Prymachenko was burned down by Russians in March. We began working with the Maria Prymachenko Family Foundation, which is now raising funds to protect and preserve her art, and are planning an art residence and museum of Prymachenko." - Victoria Yakusha, FAINA.
