MARIJA PUIPAITE & VYTAUTAS GECAS

Marija Puipaitė and Vytautas Gečas are Vilnius based designers. Both studied BA Product design at Vilnius Academy of Arts and completed their Master degree in Contextual Design at Design Academy Eindhoven (2013/2014).  Marija uses human body as a starting point for her designs. Wether it is a furniture or a jewellery, it always possess an intimate, organic connection with it’s user. Vytautas 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 of developing and presenting their own projects both designers are working with several brands, mentoring at Vilnius College of Design, curating design workshops and exhibitions. This time La Terrasse brought them together to fulfil each other’s fantasies into being.
