Description

In 2018, during their residency at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris, the contextual designer Vytautas Gečas began artistic research into decor. Taking as his point of reference the idea that the Baroque epoch at its outset was associated with something “peculiar and unnecessarily complicated”, Gečas linked it to the depreciation of decor in our everyday environment. While analyzing historical artifacts and techniques, he focused on the actualization of decor and its possible manifestations in the context of contemporary design.

All of this, together with practical experimentation and a playful approach to contemporary materials techniques, became embodied in “Pink Console”, an eclectic piece of furniture.

Seeking to reintroduce decor in the present-day context, Vytautas Gečas employed dynamic decorative aesthetics as inspiration for construction junction.

About the designer


Vytautas Gečas

Vytautas Gečas (b. 1987, Lithuania) is Vilnius-based designer and PhD student at the Vilnius Academy of Arts. Vytautas obtained his BA in Product Design at the Vilnius Academy of Arts, followed by an MA in Contextual Design at the Design Academy Eindhoven. Vytautas, turns to domestic objects as subjects of personification. By leaning on complexity, fragmentation and layering, he plays with different perceptions and contexts of the created objects. He likes to observe commonness of everyday to look for unexpected outcomes in object-based narratives. His works are born through exploring the relations between contemporary and traditional materials, contrasting cold and hard, brass, metallic, or carbon structures with wood or cushioned, “comfortable” forms. Thus, various organic variations are created, leaving room for possible reconstruction. In many cases, the constructive framework of the designed objects remains exposed to viewer. This creates a rhythmic unfolding of the works’ inner structure that in turn, enveloped in the accompanying material, causes a fluidity in the shapes and an ergonomic feel.

Curated by

Presenting “PROXIMITY”, a collection created in collaboration with Southern Sweden Design Days showcasing a selection of new work from ten designers and studios. As a whole, the collection contemplates the notion of proximity, interconnection, and belonging. Whether through contemporary references to traditional crafts techniques; the use of locally sourced materials such as wool, lichen, steel, and wood; or playful visualisations of the notion itself, the selected pieces illustrate the importance of closeness, interconnection, and kinship in uncertain times. Featuring pieces by Andrea Santivanez, Andréason & Leibel, Ebba Lindgren, Förstberg Ling, Jóna Berglind Stefánsdóttir, Lab La Bla, Lisa Darland, Louise Hederström, Moa Lönn, and Studio M. Organised by Form/Design Center in Malmö, Sweden, Southern Sweden Design Days is an annual event currently in its second edition, which highlights sustainability, collaboration, development, and innovation in design. This year’s theme, as described by the event organisers, “[reflects] on the notion of being close – the connection between people, cities, countries, species, professions, etc”. The physical exhibition of “PROXIMITY” will take place at Lokstallarna, Södra Bulltoftavägen 51, 212 22 Malmö from 19 - 22 May 2022.
