About Romance & Gravity.
In 2018 during their residency at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris, the contextual design duo of Marija Puipaitė and Vytautas Gečas began artistic research into the decor. 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 it 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. 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.
In 2020 the series "Romance & Gravity" and "Envisioned Comfort" by Marija Puipaitė and Vytautas Gečas were presented at Collectible Design Fair in Brussels. This successful performance was followed by an invitation to participate in Paris Design Week. In the same year, the virtual design gallery Adorno presented "Envisioned Comfort" on London Design Week. Finally, their work was featured in "The Guardian" and "Elle Decor” magazines in various countries.
Material: aluminum and stainless steel.
