Description

Taking as their point of reference the idea that the Baroque epoch, at its outset, was associated with something ‘peculiar and unnecessarily complicated’, they linked the theme to the depreciation of decor in our everyday environment. While analyzing historical artifacts and techniques, they 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 and techniques, became embodied in “Romance & Gravity”, an eclectic collection of furniture and interior accessories.

Seeking to reintroduce decor in the present-day context, Marija Puipaitė and Vytautas Gečas employed such decorative elements as frames and folds and transformed them into autonomous, almost conscious functional works. The mirror frame, which itself became a mirror, and the dresser, inspired by racing technology, display motifs of deformation and fluidity, as if their form was shaped by time and speed

About the designer


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.
