concept behind continuum

 

Victoria Yakusha is a Ukrainian-born designer and architect who united the five handcrafting specialists into one exhibition. The creatives all share two things in common: a spirit of freedom and a respect for our planet. White is the core color of CONTINUUM – the definition of a blank completeness. White wool, fabrics, chocolate and stone bring neutrality to the exposition to create a setting that crosses the past, present and future.
