Solmaz Fooladi is the Ukrainian designer of Iranian origin. She graduated from Kyiv National University of Construction and Architecture and now owns the Solmaz Primavera Studio. She works in the Persian modernism style, combining the luxury and symbols of ancient civilizations with modern architectural trends and technologies. Not limiting herself with any architectural style in the creation of objects, Solmaz, however, prefers loft- industrial style. She also knows how to make dead things alive, collecting stuff from Soviet time, rusty metal, old wooden pieces and turning them into completely genuine work of art. In her projects that more than 50! She also uses such materials as concrete, glass, fixtures, oxidized metal. Meanwhile, Solmaz is not divorced from her roots, filling the space with warmth and colors of the East. Flame and dignity of Persian Sun, abundance of the Babylon gardens, the colorful riot of Oriental rugs are organically used in Solmaz Fooladi’s solutions with unexpected combinations of elements. Reinterpretation of what has become classic, giving the second life to seemingly unnecessary and forgotten subjects are Solmaz’s works major trends in the past few years.
