The Art of Bold Color and Geometry: Daria Zinovatnaya's Revolutionary Designs

Daria Zinovatnaya is a Ukrainian industrial and interior designer who creates furniture, interiors and architectural concepts that capture the essence of mid-century design and are nothing short of extraordinary. Her designs are unique, and she is known for combining simple forms with unusual execution, bringing together bold colors and shapes that complement one another, rather than overwhelm. Zinovatnaya is based in Cologne, Germany. and is inspired by a range of renowned architects and designers, including Matisse, Le Corbusier, Eileen Gray, and Charlotte Perriand. Her design process begins with color, which is at the heart of her work. Zinovatnaya’s painter’s palette consists mainly of saturated colors, such as rust-brown, moss green, ocher yellow, and night blue, with the occasional addition of purple, brick brown, golden yellow, and ultramarine. “It is thanks to the colors that my work really comes to life. In my ideal world, people are not afraid to use a lot of color,” says Zinovatnaya.

When Zinovatnaya is commissioned for a project, she conceives not just a single item but rather the entire space. She designs wall art, chairs or couches, lighting, rugs, furnishings, and floor and ceiling patterns, all of which are seamlessly brought together to create a cohesive and alluring design. Her signature graphic interiors are a standout feature, with striking wall arrangements that feature extreme color blocking that extends from the walls to the ceiling.

Basic geometric shapes create her bespoke furniture line, which is heavily influenced by the Suprematist Movement and the work of Kazimir Malevich. “Like the Suprematists, I like to experiment with colors and shapes. Two seemingly simple ingredients with which you can do very exciting things,” says Zinovatnaya. She is also inspired by Le Corbusier, Charlotte Perriand, Jean Prouvé, and Johannes Itten, whom she named her second furniture line after.

Zinovatnaya’s work is both eccentric and modern, and she has received several design accolades and been commissioned to design interiors for private residences, corporate offices, fashion boutiques, and trade show booths. “I would like to further develop my furniture line,” says Zinovatnaya, and there is no doubt that she will continue to push the boundaries of design and inspire others to embrace the power of color and geometric shapes in their own work.

Her unique approach to design and her focus on color and geometric shapes set her apart, and her alluring designs are a testament to her talent and creativity.
