For their Red-doll toy collection, Sasha Braulov and Nasya Kopteva (52 Factory) overlapped Russian avant-garde artist’s graphics with traditional Russian toys. To do so they studied the forms and symbols intrinsic to traditional toys and created nine wooden objects to emphasize the sole origin of the fabric patterns of 1920-1930 and key symbols present in Russian traditional architecture, painting and literature, all inherited from the ancient Slavic culture characters (sun, water, earth, etc.). The design takes inspiration from the works of avant-garde artists Varvara Stepanova, Lyubov Popova, Alexander Rodchenko, Ilya Chashnik and Kazimir Malevich.
