Galerija VARTAI would like to congratulate two emerging Lithuanian designers Marija Puipaitė and Vytautas Gečas who were presented in the latest Elle Decor India issue which featured a Console Table from the series Envisioned Comfort!
One of us had a fantasy about an object that could bring a womb-like pleasure, meaning - the ultimate satisfaction that the material environment can give. We merged our two different design practices into one object taking this fantasy as a starting point. Such abstract mode of thinking, we found, allows to erase what we know about domestic objects and opens up the possibility for re-thinking and re-creating them. However, the same way the mind gives a clear body to the fantasy by restraining, the construction defines and forms a fluid shape into an ergonomic entity.
