It was selected by French trend specialist François Bernard for his space "What's New?" at HALL 1.
“This zone is focused on sincerity and hospitality, that only make sense if we really start listening to others and showing them our gratitude. Showing gratitude prompts a sense of self-worth”, – says François Bernard about his future trend-zone.
Ukrsavana is a world where Ukrainian traditions and nature are the main co-authors of designers. A place far from the city and worries, where the notion of "bustle" remains unknown. Products and decor here live out of time and create their own rules.

Our representation in the world, formation of such a concept as "Ukrainian design" – that is the reason why we wake up in the morning. And the fact that our product has been chosen to a trend-zone once seemed like an unreal dream. So, our waking up is not useless", says Sergey Makhno, founder of the studio Sergey Makhno Architects.
