Lithuanian Design Forum Joint Exposition

“Visitors to the joint stand of the Lithuanian Design Forum at Resta / Furniture and Design Solutions ’22 had the opportunity to see the expositions of fourteen companies and developers. We will not tell you about the high production standards and carefully selected natural materials characteristic of all exhibitors. Each product is characterised by durability and longevity. These qualities are ensured by the quality of the materials, the ingenuity of the designers and the consistency and care of the manufacturers. Visitors to the exhibition were able to see unique products from Lithuanian manufacturers and designers. For those who did not have a chance to visit the exhibition, we invite you to read a little more about Lithuanian designers.

Inspired by nature, Namuos, a manufacturer of interior fittings, creates subtle design objects. The company’s entire range is made in Lithuania from oak, ash and birch wood. The aesthetically pleasing pieces are embellished with wool, metal and leather details. “The materials used in Namuos help to create a homely feel and reduce the environmental impact of production, so leftovers are recycled, used for customer gifts or donated to design schools and jewellery manufacturers.

“IDDO slow living is a brand of modern interior design with a Nordic minimalist approach.

“Kopar’s craftsmen have invaluable experience in creating exquisite metal surfaces for furniture and interiors, and the company’s founders draw their creative inspiration primarily from jewellery design.

Rūta Būtėnaitė’s carpet design studio designs and manufactures carpets specifically for interiors. As Rūta herself says: “Carpets are a creation of the spirit of a home, its tradition, a work of art displayed on the ground. Over more than 20 years of carpet designing, we have gained the experience to feel the expectations of each family and to anticipate the visions of architects and interior designers. Carpets are specially designed for each interior, depending on its style, colours and patterns. The most compatible natural fibre and colour scale are selected, the design is created and a quality, long-lasting product is produced.”

Alongside the carpet designs, the author also presented at the Carpet Design Forum reproductions of her versatile drawings, which are suitable for many individual and public interiors. She shared her passion for drawing and shared the opportunity to house her drawings in your home – “each with its own narrative, its own magic and enchanting mystery”.
