LITHUANIA | SIMONAS TARVYDAS & JUSTE KUBILINSKAITE (INDI): KABO
SOON AT THE STATE OF DESIGN, BERLIN 2017 FESTIVAL AS PART OF TOTAL CHANGE, NIEUWE GLOBAL GESTALTUNG #001Indi is a Vilnius based design studio that focuses on the home. While considering creativity as a permanent process that runs parallel to the continuously changing home environment, the Baltic spirit and Nordic minimalism inspire the studio to handle a lifestyle aesthetics to which light and witty ideas stand central. “During the cold season in Lithuania days become very short. The lack of sun and natural light makes itself strongly felt. That’s why home light sources are so important to us. They are a necessary element for well being, inner harmony and coziness. And while simplicity, natural elements and tranquility are also common to us, the main goal is to create things that will be not just be aesthetically and environmently friendly, but also have its original implication and excite the imagination”. Created from handmade cellulose, the Kabo lamp is a good example of this approach, combining the illusion of a heavy monolith with an incredible lightness.
