GIRIA in Lithuanian means an old-growth forest that has attained great age without significant disturbance.
The project is aimed to pass the sensations of the forest through material, to bring the nature to urban home.
It is a result of an experimental process by which it was meant to show how materials, which are destined to become waste – tree bark and leaves – can be transformed into sustainable design through the traditional crafts.
No two items in GIRIA are the same: each is made by hand from the bark dust of different kinds of trees (Oak, Pine, Ash and tree leaves) that gives a unique texture, varying in colour and roughness of a surface.
The pedestal bowl is made by hand from tree bark or leaf powder. The base of the bowl is accompanied with a brass tube that gives a great contrast for the raw material.
