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 (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

New Solid is a vision to feel and live with art. It is the first show of Casa Nueva, a livable gallery space and apartment hotel initiated by designers River Valadez and Sebastián Arroyo Hoebens, built on the idea that art can be inhabited. We invite visitors to participate in the dialogue among transdisciplinary works from the contemporary art and design scene. It concerns functional art designed and conceived by artists from two magnificent cities, Mexico City and New York, in a correlation founded in geometry, technology, and crafts. The artworks, bliss for the contemplative eye and a joy to use, will invite the beholder to examine the floating and multidimensional character of concepts such as mass, volume, or weight. The location, equipped as a functional living space, can be found in the historical center of Mexico City. The event will be part of the Design Week Mexico festivities in partnership with Adorno, acting as the international design and logistics platform, as well as Ángulo Cero, an Art Gallery with astonishing designs located in Mexico City, and with the support of Yunuen Sariego, promoter and curator of contemporary art based in Mexico City.
