London Design Festival, 12-20 September 2020
Lithuanian designers Marija Puipaitė and Vytautas Gečas represented at Virtual Design Destination by Adorno. This is the place to discover more than 200 exclusive pieces of collectible design during the London Design Festival. Working with Adorno’s roster of international curators from design scenes across the globe, Adorno is presenting fourteen country pavilions virtually during the event, launching two collections per day under the theme of ‘The New Reality’.
Lithuanian collection "Race with Nature" curated by Audornė Drungilaitė reflects the never-ending competition between humans and nature; the chosen scenography of the exhibit reveals the history of the landscape as four villages and two cemeteries were swallowed by the shifting sands at Curonian Spit (Dead Dunes, Lithuania) in 1675-1854. The result of human activity and dominating western winds encouraged dunes to travel from 0,5 to 15 meters per year reaching a height of up to 53 meters.
