Ukrainian design brand FAINA, established in 2014 by architect Victoria Yakusha, released new upholstered furniture line called PAMPUKH: sofa, armchair, bench and bed. From Ukrainian “pampukh” means a small savory or sweet yeast-raised bun or doughnut typical for Ukrainian cuisine. It’s us usually made of very tender dough, that is why the “pampukh” itself as Ukrainians says “melts in the mouth.
Unusual convex lines of the PAMPUKH series are ideally combined with volumetric silhouette of furniture. PAMPUKH seems to melt beneath you, enveloping calm and comfort.
Like “pampukh” – a series of upholstered furniture from FAINA designed for joy. The shape of the products is directly proportional to comfort: the low armrests allow to conveniently rest in the bosom of the sofa while reading a book, or to take a sweet powernap on the same armrest. Soft geometry shape, elegance and some touches of primitivism – powerful signs by which you will recognize FAINA Design furniture anywhere in the world.
