“Our Inspiration for creating the ornaments comes from Georgia’s distinctive alphabet and we use the shapes of letters to present our language and culture in an original and artistic form.”
Saini is an contemporary product design studio founded in 2015 by Georgian artist/designers couple – Nino Slepchenko and Levan Vateishvili. Their work is based on a new concept of creating ornaments that are both deeply Georgian and innovative.
Unique ornaments presented by Saini are all based on Georgian script, which is among the most ancient of the world's 14 original scripts. Ornaments are created by designers’ artistic view of each Georgian letter and a technological approach to the process. Nino developed around 2000 unique copyrighted ornaments. The author observed that application of the same technology to other alphabets does not produce such brilliant results.
The word “Saini” in old Georgian means plate, and Saini studio’s main product line is high-end dinnerware.
Saini studio works to create high-end dinnerware, exclusive interior design objects: furniture, lighting, decorative mirrors, ceramic tiles, floor and wall mosaic, home decor items made of wood, natural stones and fabric, as well as jewelry, textile, souvenirs and exclusive custom-made items.
Saini's products are mainly handmade and made from natural, Eco-friendly materials.
