Marija Puipaitė and Vytautas Gečas: Envisioned Comfort

Marija Puipaitė & Vytautas Gečas
Envisioned Comfort

Marija Puipaitė and Vytautas Gečas merged their two different design practices into one object, using a fantasy as a their starting point. This resulted in a series of different types of chairs which have the same principal of construction. This time it’s a seat based on the ergonomics of a saddle.

One of them had a fantasy about an object that could bring a womb-like pleasure, meaning – the ultimate satisfaction that the material environment can give. 

This abstract mode of thinking allows to erase what we know about domestic objects and opens up the possibility to re-think and re-create them. The same way the mind gives a clear body to the fantasy by restraining it, the construction defines and forms a fluid shape into an ergonomic entity.
