A bit psycho, a bit poem

Summer’s short in Vilnius, so good things happen one after another, dense in time and beauty. There’s a place – bellow the sky above the ground – that hosts a table, two chairs, a tea set, and a stunning view to the Old Town’s churches and roofs.

Ridged Roof Furniture is a project conceived and implemented by designer Ainė Bunikytė, as her graduation work at the Vilnius Accademy of Arts. The table will remain there for the rest of the summer. Some say it is useless ‘cause you couldn’t get not even an XS body over there. Some don’t say anything. To dream, you don’t need weight


The following excerpts are taken from the designer’s texts. 

“Although the furniture is designed in a non-logical sequence and by paradox principle, they invite, enhance charm and wish“.

“It’s a paradox that the table and the chairs would be almost functional if they weren’t unreachable“.

“The idea was inspired from the author’s enjoyment to spend time on roofs and from admiration of old roofs since childhood.”

“By defying conventional practice the furniture is balancing between the imaginary and the real. In our minds it creates a scenario of using it, but is still unusable.”

“The invitation is even more stimulating since the transparent surfaces don’t hide but show what would wait for us.”
