Yulya Yalanzhi is a Ukrainian designer, artist, co-founder of the YALANZHI OBJECTS brand. It has conquered various exhibitions, including the Parisian Maison& Objet.
Yulya’s artistic education was preceded by a technical one. She acquired numerous professions in Odessa, even though she works in Kyiv now at the present moment. For about 10 years Yulya has been involved in interior and subject design, as well as traditional visual arts. Creative research in sculpture motivated Yalanzhi to create art objects and installations. In the spring of 2017, the world had a chance to witness the project “Cell Practice”.
2017 is special for Yulya as well since YALANZHI OBJECTS brand was born. Yulya started it with her husband Yevhen Melnychenko. “Cellular Practice” is a large-scale sculptural installation. It is a collection of thousands of spherical objects that are different size and diameter. She did her best to fill the exhibition space and visually impress the viewer. The balls that were created from cellulose and made in the author’s technique inspired the artist to create a line of lighting elements and sculptural panels. Yulya was guided by the idea of creating a product on the edge of art and design for customers who understand the art and are willing to invest in their real estate. The utilitarianism of these interior items was caused by the strength and lightness of the products, environmental friendliness of the material and the ability to transform the compositions through their modular designs.
In 2020 the YALANZHI OBJECTS brand presented a new collection of lamps made of clay, which is just as environmentally friendly and close in perception to the Ukrainian consumer. The ceramic line is called Makosh collection, and the number of its items is constantly growing.
