Description

“Envisioned Comfort” is a series of objects based on construction that allows a broad variety of shapes. The more elements you have, the more detailed curves you can get. Therefore, this construction can be applied to almost any furniture you can imagine.

On the one hand, it’s a complex object with lots of elements. On the other hand, it’s not like other soft furniture – these are completely honest and openly show the way they are built. The rhythmical construction allows you to carefully admire the crafted elements: beechwood joints and brass fittings. By merging two different design practices, Marija Puipaitė (organic, human body based shapes) and Vytautas Gečas (complexity, fragmentation, layering) found a common point where the construction defines and forms a fluid shape into an ergonomic entity.

About the designer


Marija Puipaitė & Vytautas Gečas

Marija Puipaitė (b. 1987, Lithuania) and Vytautas Gečas (b. 1987, Lithuania) are Vilnius-based designers. Puipaitė uses the human body as the starting point for her designs. Whether it is furniture or jewellery, it always cultivates an intimate, organic connection with its user. Gečas turns domestic objects into subjects by personification. He uses complexity, fragmentation, layering, mixed references to play with the context and the perception of the object. Besides developing and presenting their own projects, both designers collaborate with brands, engage in mentoring, and curate design workshops and exhibitions. By merging two different design practices they look for common points and unexpected results in object-based narratives.

Curated by

The body of work in this collection consists of pieces by Greek designers of the mainland and the diaspora, or international professionals who live and work in Greece. As a common theme we tackle the elusive notion of “Greekness” and how this transpires through the work of seemingly diverse and distinct individuals. In our attempt to define “Greekness”, we aim to raise questions about how this plays out in the work presented. How do Greek designers view their identity? Is it through their effort to decipher their heavy heritage? Is form important in order to achieve a predisposed classic elegance, or is a philosophical disposition towards shape more poignant? Could it be simply a resourcefulness and DIY ethic to make up for the absence of design infrastructure? How do Greek designers based abroad deal with their background? Could it be that they simply ignore it in order to finally free themselves? Is there a certain amount of innovation necessary in order to channel it into the new environment? Finally, how do foreign designers see their work influenced by their Greek surroundings? Is it the reference through the use of noble materials such as marble or the abundance of natural light that makes their work unquestionably Greek? Or could it be something else they were seeking when they decided to move here, something abstract like humour or drama? Could their arrival finally mean a departure from Greek heritage’s self-reference? The pieces that we present might seem ill-matched, but they share an important core element. They are confident in their narrative of a personal story of identity, that is either at peace or against the Greek archetype. Through this communication, they all describe a culturally mature and vibrant scene that is finally extroverted and coming of age.
