Dmitry Kozinenko is a Ukrainian furniture designer with a fascinating portfolio on Behance. Many of his designs remain as concepts but have garnered a lot of attention online and have real potential for production due to their relatively simple constructions, and unique aesthetics.
Simple cut-outs and abstract shading techniques have played a part in many of Dmitry Kozinenko previous works including ‘In The Fog’. This furniture series featured circular halftone gradient cut-outs in its metal sheeting to create a subtle illusion in much the same way as ‘Sunny’, the primary focus of this feature.
‘Sunny’ features an array of furniture pieces including coffee tables, vertical shelves, wall-mounted shelf modules, and a side table. The series is defined by the illusions of shadow it creates through the use of hatched lines at bold 45° angles which lay flat against the floor or wall.
These are of course primarily for decoration, and to make the Sunny furniture series more visually engaging. But they also add a degree of structural stability to the furniture, and allow the corners of two separate pieces from the series to fit together perpendicularly as pictured below.
